This will copy all files and make it bootable? Sorry but the search on dd have no shown what I need. I need to copy my good drive with everything to a new drive so I can put it in a new box and boot. Any other pages on dd? Google brought back a few that I am digging through now.
What about this. Another nice BSD'er sent it to me. 1.Create slice on second's disks 2. Create partition and run newfs, when /dev/da0 - original disk and /dev/da1 - other disk (for backup) 3. Mount set echo on /sbin/mount /dev/da1s1a /mnt/root /sbin/mount /dev/da1s1e /mnt/var /sbin/mount /dev/da1s1f /mnt/usr 4. Copy cd /mnt/root /sbin/dump -f- /|restore -rf- cd /mnt/var /sbin/dump -f- /var|restore -rf- cd /usr /sbin/dump -f- /usr|restore -rf- Cheers M;) -----Original Message----- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]] On Behalf Of Kirk Strauser Sent: Thursday, January 09, 2003 9:37 AM To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Subject: Re: Drive Image / Cloning At 2003-01-09T15:48:22Z, Paul Everlund <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> writes: > # /bin/dd if=/dev/ad4 of=/dev/ad6 bs=16384 Not that the source drive *must* be mounted read-only (or the system running in single-user mode) for the results not to be massively corrupted. -- Kirk Strauser In Googlis non est, ergo non est.
