I have been trying to figure this out for two days now... time to swallow my pride and admit defeat... please help me...
I have cloned an EL5 operating system hard disk, using clonezilla, device-to-device, and now I want to boot off my cloned image. I have 6 servers to build, and would prefer to clone them from my "master" system, then make the required changes (system name, root password changes, etc. ) after the cloning process.
Server is a Dell T320, brand new, 2 x 500GB SATA hard drives, PERC S110 drive controllers. Clonezilla happily cloned my bootable "master" drive to another drive. I installed that drive as the first SATA disk, then rebooted my server. I get an error at boot, "No operating system is currently installed on this computer."
I next booted from my EL5 installation disk, and at the boot prompt typed "install rescue" to get to a command prompt.
