What to Adjust? - Vector(SW10.1) Image dd Transfered From hda6 to sda7
I just changed out a dying ide hard drive with a new sata one. I made an image of my VectorLinux 5.1.1 SOHO install using:
dd if=/dev/hda6 bs=2048 | gzip > mnt/storage/VL511SOHObackup.gz
and backedup the MBR of hda (grub, with menu.lst on hda6) using:
dd if=/dev/hda of=/mnt/storage/dd_hda_mbrbackup bs=512 count=1
I uninstalled the old ide hard drive installed the new sata one and pushed on the previously created VL image from hda6 onto sda7 using:
gzip -dc /mnt/storage/VL511SOHObackup.gz | dd of=/dev/sda7
and pushed on the MBR, minus the partition table, of hda onto sda using:
dd if=/mnt/storage/dd_hda_mbrbackup /dev/sda bs=446 count=1
I used the Vector install CD to boot (I get a never ending listing of "GRUB" across the screen with hard drive boot. I'll just reinstall grub) using linux root=/dev/sda7. It boots fine after tweaking fstab and menu.lst, but is there anything else I am missing?

What all do I need to do to tweak now to complete the change from from hda6 to sda7? fstab, menu.lst ... anything else?
Thanks :) Perhaps this would be a cakewalk using proprietary software, but what fun would that be? :mrgreen: What's going to be really fun is fixing the WinOS installs I had on hda (see sig) that I also moved to sda... :???:
