    PartImage Help


    Hi everyone, I use partimage to backup my server /dev/hda1 (1GB) and it works great. There is 3 partition in the 40GB harddisk, /dev/hda5 (1GB swap) and /dev/hda6(35GB ext3).

    Now i want to upgrade my harddisk to 80Gb, at first i parttition my harrdisk into
    /dev/hda1 (1GB ext3)
    /dev/hda5 (1GB swap)
    /dev/hda6 (75GB ext3)
    after that i format each partition and i run partimage, but what i get is partimage list all the device out /dev/sda1 /dev/hda, etc....

    what i'm curious is last time when i use 40Gb harddisk, partimage will list out /dev/hda1, /dev/hda5, /dev/hda6, but when i change to 80GB and try to restore the data, it only show me /dev/hda <--- 3 partition but it only show me 1.

    I already try fdisk to make partition many times, but it still fail, any 1 have ideal how to solve this?

    Thanks in advance

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
