    Question 'move' a boot partition to a new drive.

    hello friends.

    after getting a new hard drive I've realized that I'm not able to operate both of the HDD simultaneously. Since I don't really feel like installing everything all over i though it would be nice if there existed such a trick, where i could just duplicate to boot partition from the old HDD into the new one.

    My only option to run them simultaneously is to run the old one as IDE and the other to connect through USB.

    Ideas will be appreciated

    Cheers, Amit.

    you can copy an image of your system to the other hard drive using :Creating disc images using dd
