Cloned SSD - Put Cloned SDD Into Different Desktop - No Boot?


I have an SSD with Manjaro KDE 64Bit on it.
I used a stand-alone disk drive cloning device to clone Manjaro SSD to another empty SSD.
I put the new cloned SSD into a different desktop with similar hardware.
When I turn on the desktop, it does not boot?
Any ideas?


Try the fallback initrd. If that works, regenerate the initrd, then reboot. It should work normally then.

Probably because you haven’t edited the /etc/fstab with the new UUID. You’ll need to chroot in and fix it.

Ok, I booted the desktop with Manjaro Live USB…
…what should I do now?

You should be able to use manjaro-chroot to mount your partitions.

Then use sudo blkid to figure out the UUIDs of all of your partitions

Then use sudo nano to edit the /etc/fstab of your SSD/installation to correct the UUIDs

If you need to fix grub as well:

Sorry, little lost:
I am running off of Manjaro KDE USB…
