Hello.

I am new here and with gentoo and this will be my first post.
I had some help installing gentoo on my system and everything was ok except a minor detail.

It was installed in my first physical IDE hard drive on the second partition while windows is on the first partition.

<code>
# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/hda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x2ad92ad8

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 * 1 10199 81920000 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda2 10200 18867 69625710 83 Linux
/dev/hda3 18868 19457 4739175 82 Linux swap / Solaris
</code>

What i need now is to move the whole gentoo install to my second physical hard drive:

<code>
# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 250.1 GB, 250059350016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0xd982d982

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 1 29903 240195816 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 29904 30401 4000185 82 Linux swap / Solaris
</code>

This is a sata hard drive but i have made the partitions with the same filesystem type, (reiserfs).

If i am not mistaken i have to use <b>dd</b> to copy the install over the new hard drive but i have never done this.

What steps do i need to take to copy it properly and have it working flawlessly?

Moved from Installing Gentoo to Duplicate Threads.

Looks like accidental duplicate post
