boot into manjaro usb, connect to internet, open terminal and chroot: sudo manjaro-chroot -a
post output from what kernels you have installed and if you are running bios or efi: mhwd-kernel -li test -d /sys/firmware/efi && echo efi || echo bios
It is, but you shouldn’t have cloned it. Cloning copies everything including UUIDs and empty space. Good for building multiple identical computers, taking a copy of a drive for file recovery/forensics etc.
You now have two identical drives, that could cause problems. Perhaps clonezilla can’t handle btrfs, I don’t use either so I don’t know what complications you may or may not encounter.
Did windows have to recover? If so it may have overwritten your grub config.
First try removing one of the drives, if the filesystem on the other drive is good it should boot. However those errors imply there’s something wrong with your grub config.
The proper way to move a partition (for btrfs there’s also send/receive): create new partition, mount both partitions, copy files over, sync, umount, update fstab, and if it’s the / partition then update grub too. (/ is best done from a live USB, chroot to update grub)
(data || settings) != OS, don’t keep them on the same partition, use a separate home partition. Then you can re-install all you want without losing user settings/data.
If you need to backup/re-format then you can do it from a live USB.
I still don’t use btrfs but ext4 and backintime that backups automatic the whole system every night using rsync, so only new/changed data will be included.
This prevents me of having much trouble as you have now!
Hi, after few hours of searching the net I stil cant get my cloned disk to work… need help, this should be some easy fix for that problem I have, probably the grub or some boot config file need to be corrected…
I cloned working latest Manjaro KDE SSD (btrfs) to new larger SSD, using latest Clonezilla.
I have removed the old disk and retsarted PC and forced to boot from the new SSD (my system have Windows boot on another disk,. and there is one more non-booting disk, both NVMe)
Error Iam getting is very strange: “could not find the chunk descriptor, entering rescue mode…”
Partitions on the new SSD are: sda1 fat32, sda2 btrfs and two unallocated spaces. Before the cloning I had also the old boot disk in my pc, it was sdb, with same partitions as sda now. Now no sdb and the copied configuration to sda must be wrong I guess…
