Running from a 'copy' harddisk containing Linux
Posted on 2004-11-23
My Linux PC has recently crashes and I have to move the harddisk -- containing the Linux OS -- to another PC, and try to restart it again. Before I installed the harddisk on another PC, I had made a backup, copy of the harddisk using the application 'Drive Image'.
When I start the PC with the original harddisk, the Linux recognized the hardware differences and it runs perfectly; but not the copy.
When I try to start the PC using the copy, I only get '>Li'. I guess it is from LILO. I don't understand much about MBR, but I think it has to do with MBR.
My question is, how can I start my PC using the 'copy' harddisk?
