Moving 5.8soho to different partition
« on: December 26, 2007, 03:52:27 pm »
HO HO HO Santa got me a new SATA drive. I have 5.8. SOHO On Hda10 this also is my LILO bootloader OS. I want to move/copy to Sda1. I am sure I can handle this from the terminal but.....How do I reconfigure Lilo so it looks at Sda1 and not Hda10?

Change lilo to the proper boot device.

So if lilo says root = /dev/hda1
change to root = /dev/hda2

Remember to run lilo -v as root afterwards.

Well. It seems like there should have been more to it. That itself was not enough. I ended up having to install new to SDA1 then copy my files over. Easy enough though. Thanks for the help
