harddisk in new computer fails

previously I always could transfer a hard disk in a new computer if the cpu was the same (x86_64).
I want to transfer harddisk with opensuse 11.4 (x86_64) on a new motherboard also x86_64 and same cpu.

But I am getting this error when booting .

Trying manual resume from
resume device dev/disk/by-id/ata-…-part1 not found (ignoring)
Waiting for device dev/disk/by-id/ata-…-part2 to appear
Could not find dev/disk/by-id/ata-…-part2
Want me to fall back to dev/disk/by-id/ata-…-part2 ? (Y/N)

Is it not possible anymore to transfer the hard disk.

I also did tried this
Digger’s Blog: Cannot boot OpenSuse 12 after cloning disk due to by-id access to the disk
but it did not work
dev/sda1 not found (ignoring)

Need some help

If it’s the same HDD, the changes made in the other thread are not necessary, your HDD’s device-id is the same. I suspect it’s some BIOS setting. Could it be that there were multiple hdd’s in the prevous machine? I.e. is the only thing replaced in the machine the motherboard?

Its the same HDD but another motherboard but also from Asus.
There is no multiboot and there are no other HDD just one master ide harddisk.
If I startup with a live dvd choose rescue do Ctrl+Alt+F2 login as root and type fdisk -l
I see partition named /dev/sda1 sda2 and sda3 that is good.
So I don’t understand dev/sda1 not found (ignoring)

It does not say it can not find /dev/sda1, at least I do not read this in your post #1.
It says it can not find a partition 1 on a disk with id ata…
You should not jump to conclusions ot at least give us the information whre we can follow how you came to a conclusion.

As the id used in* /dev/disk/by-id* did not change when you us the same physical disk, this should work as Knurpht says.

A bit more information might help us to get a better inmsight in the situation (and I find it a bit strange that you did not privide this in your first post):
. Is part1 the Swap partition (thus it can not fond it and then decides to get on without swap).?
. Is part2 the root partition?
. What happens when you answer Y to the “fall back” question?

parrt1 swap
part2 / ext4
part3 /home ext4

Its now back to /dev/disk/by-id because it should work.

This is exactly what I see only I have a Western Digital HDD:

I have now made an new install on another smaller (40gb ) HDD in the Asus (x86_64)
and transfer this HDD to a ASrock (x86_64) computer starts without any problem.
Maybe I have to flash the asus bios?

Want me to fall back to dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC-WD800…-part2 ? (Y/N)
When I type in Y
…not found exiting to /bin/sh
sh: cannot set terminal process group (-1) : Inappropriate ioctl for device
sh: no job control in this shell

We can of course not check if the disk is realy *TOSHIBA-MK1246GSX-28FGTI70T *.

And initrd might be a showstopper here, but I assume that the initrd you use belongs to the installed OS on the disk and thus has the correct id.

When you bail-out into /bin/sh, can you check the real id of the disk by looking into the* /dev/disk/by-id*?

Well, no you can’t :frowning:

Booting any other live CD, rescue, or whatever, with the TOSHIBA-MK1246GSX-28FGTI70T attached, you can then look in /dev/disk/by-id to check if it is realy TOSHIBA-MK1246GSX-28FGTI70T.

Boot from a live CD, open a root terminal and post the output of the following commands:

$ su -l
# fdisk -l
# hwinfo --disk | grep Device
# blkid

Further, assuming “part2” is sda2, mount it and check/post the content of /boot/grub/menu.lst and /etc/fstab

# mount -t ext4 /dev/sda2 /mnt
# cat /mnt/boot/grub/menu.lst
# cat /mnt/etc/fstab

If you realy want to know this was the reall message had to type it over:

No, you have to boot a live and run the commands he requested. And please
remember to post computer text in code tags, do not insert them directly in
the forum message.


Cheers / Saludos,

I am realy confused now. Earlier we had id TOSHIBA-MK1246GSX-28FGTI70T and now e have WDC_WD800JB-00JJC0_WD-WCAM9P030754 ???

Yes I know but I have to download a new live DVD just started please wait one moment.

I mentioned I had exactly the same message but am using another HDD

Maybe Henk can add the missing code tags to make your post more readable (?) so we can easily see what’s wrong here.

So, your system is configured to search for a toshiba disk, and now you
have another one, a WDC. That can not boot!

But then, what I can see from your menu.lst does not match the messages you
get on boot, either.

I’m confused…

Humm … Could you please run hwinfo --disk again, without filtering with grep?

# hwinfo --disk
# find /dev/disk/by-id/

No, I can not.

That is I can, but that is NOT the same as copy/paste from the original between CODE tags. When you add CODE tags later the layout is allready lost. What you then have is a clear boundary between story and computer text and also it avoids some character combinations to be converted into smileys, but your fdisk listing will have no clear column structure as it has on the terminal.
You should do it correct from the beginning: http://forums.opensuse.org/english/information-new-users/advanced-how-faq-read-only/451526-posting-code-tags-guide.html
