    Motherboard failure - can I boot from the drive in another PC?

    Turloch O'Tierney-Oracle
      Hi Oracle Linux,

      Hard disk contains a database we do not want to lose.

      I try to boot from another PC and get:
      No volume found
      Volume group "VolGroup00" not found.

      If I put in a rescue dvd I can mount and copy off the data to a usb drive.
      I have spent 2 days on this
      making minor changes to lvm.conf and trying uuids
      if there is no forthcoming solution I will
      1/copy the database to a new install,
      2/install relevant rpms,
      3/update kernel settings,
      and fix it up that way (which has an incremental, though not certain, route to success).

      OS:Oracle linux 5 recently updated (5.8)
      8 year old desktop pentium 4 machine.

      Thank you for your time,
      Turloch
