I want to clone the
root O/S from one laptop (Lenovo) to another laptop (ASUS), where the hardware capabilities between them are different, of course.
I’m a UNIX guy and have done these kinds of acrobatics in the past via the CLI (on
Linux), but am hoping for a modern, more streamlined alternative. Ideally:
- Just worry about the slash (
/) filesystem, nothing else.
- The solution would trigger a rebuild of device trees, nodes, etc
- Would adjust device
UUIDand / or
LABELSin destination system’s configuration files (e.g.
- It would discover that
Windows 10is already present on
mdXXXp1(which, by way is hardware
RAID) and adds it to GRUB.
- No LVM is needed.
- Both source and destination are configured for
This is probably a lot to ask for, but I may be surprised. The trick is always the device-tree rebuilding, which I forget how to trigger these days; as well as hunting down and editing all the files that reference a
LABEL. As well,
grub2-install /dev/xxx, while booted off a
LiveDVD always seems to get fooled because because it’s booted off a USB or DVD.
It’s just a hassle. But I’m open to ideas and step-by-steps.
Thank you friends!
