Linux Laptop does not boot up after restore ussing dd and slackware to make image.
Posted on 2006-06-22
Problem: A Image of Fedora was made based on a 60gb drive using the dd command and slackware was used to make the disk bootable when given to someone that does not have our tools and Os. The image restores well to the system is was created on but not on the other (same Make & Model) systems that were configured the same. The user can run the disk but, when the sysstem reboots to load the OS it fails when it is loading CUPs and just hangs.
Questions: Do you think it can be a MBR problem.
Any information is helpful?
Thank you in advance.
