Restored Linux Doesnt Boot from Disk

I moved a server I have onto different hardware using Dump and Restore of the partitions, and for whatever reason I cannot seem to get the system to boot off the HDD.

If I boot off the CD and go into the Install process - Other - Boot off Hard Drive, that works.  Can someone help point a noob like me at what I need to fix to have the system boot by itself?  Hopefully easy points for someone.

Thanks!

You probably forgot to install the bootloader into the MBR (master boot record).

Do the following:

- Open YaST
- Go to: System -> bootloader

You'll see an "other" button on the selection screen on the bottom right. Click that and then select "propose new configuration". Save and exit. Reboot.

K. don't ask me why, but the reinstall bootloader option that I had tired earlier that failed and did nothing for whatever reason worked this time.

who cares, working is working.  Thanks!
