Mandrake 8.1 2001 cant boot after clone HDD


Recommended Posts



I have issue with old mandrake version 8.1 rc1 586 year 2001,

- after clone HDD to new one a larger 500GB linux isn't booting up

- I tried to clon using norton ghost and other soft, no change

- after all I cole partition by bartition in easeus partition magic

- what is going on ? do I have to change UUID ? 

- how to repair linux boot ?

Probably because Mandrake 8.1 is old and won't work on newer hardware.  UUID's were not used in Mandrake 8.1, they didn't appear until probably like 10 years later.


Migrate your system to a newer version of Linux - Mandrake 8.1 is old, insecure and a security risk, and not going to work on newer hardware.
