Topic: [SOLVED] Linux novice trying to boot the disk cloned with Gparted
I am trying to clone a Ubuntu server installation to a larger disk. I successfully copied the / partition, /home partition and the swap partition and resized the /home partition to fill the new disk. Then I set the boot flag on the / partition so everything on the new disk looks just like the old disk (except the size of course).
Then I pulled the old drive and tried to boot from the new, but it does not work. There is no error message; it just hangs before grub does anything.
Obviously my mental model of how disk cloning works is faulty..
Is there an additional step I need to perform to bring the new drive to life? Some magical invocation of grub perhaps? Must I use something other than the gparted live CD to finish the job?
