I've been reading various posts and howtos to see if I can do this,
but I've hit a number of brick walls.
Here's what I want to do:
I have a Mandrake 9.2 installed on an old 10GB hard disk. I would
like to move everything to a new 60GB hard disk without having to
reinstall and such (I have it configured just the way I like it). Of
course, the partition sizes will be different, almost triple of what
they are now.
I tried using Partition Magic 8 in Windows XP to duplicate and resize
the partitions, but apparently PM8 cannot support journalized ext3.
So that was a bust.
I tried the steps listed in this howto:
I successfully copy all the old files to the new drive/partitions.
When I try to boot, it just hangs after Lilo loads (all I get are
......... where the bios check should be). I've followed the steps to
modify the lilo.conf but to no avail.
Does anyone know of a nice and easy way to copy old partitions to a
new, bigger drive without losing any data and not having to reinstall?
