Running Endeavour on an aging laptop has been a risk I knew would eventually catch up with me and it did this week. The 2016 era Acer E 15 laptop started misbehaving on the keyboard and got worse as time went on until I could not even shut down. An external USB wired keyboard gave me the same scrambled keystrokes, so this a hardware problem I am not prepared to delve into.
I just got a used desktop with Windows 10 installed on a 1TB drive of which 224GB is NTFS partitions. My wife thinks it may be useful to keep Windows, so she must be obeyed. I am hoping to use Clonezilla to clone the old 500GB laptop drive onto the remaining 707GB partition free of the target computer.
So how to I got about cloning the old computer with - any instructions ?
How to clone to the new (target) computer?
How to make the computer dual boot?
What inxi reports would you need to see? Do you need the fstab ?
I don’t understand source and target machines.
Based on the screens I posted, can you tell me what syntax after btrfs send ?
I got this
$ btrfs send 0 1
ERROR: not dumping send stream into a terminal, redirect it into a file
I have successfully used gparted to copy whole partitions from an external disk (source, arch installation with 3 partitions) to the internal disk, booting from a Live ISO.
Practically, using two usb drives, one to boot (to use gparted from), and one as the source of the partitions to transfer-copy to target (internal disk).
Of course, modifications are the same as @dalto said, change UUIDs, fstab, chroot to install bootloader.
