Plan is to “upgrade system”. Basically build a new computer (new motherboard, new cpu, new ram), but keep old system drives with already installed Manjaro and GPU remains also old for time being (because of the 6800XT availability in EU). Should it work without much fiddling or what could be possible “gotchas”?
Do I need to somehow detect new hardware and install new drivers for new chipset and new network card, or it should happen automatically?
Chipset / CPU
Chipset: B350 => X570
CPU: Zen (1st gen) => Zen 3.
old/current inxi -N: Device-1: Realtek RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet driver: r8168
new will be some: “Realtek® 8125B 2.5G LAN controller” – obviously different driver. Can I do something beforehand to enable this or it’s already inside kernel and should work?
Have (or manjaro automatically did) installed “linux5X-r8168” for the old network chip. But can’t find anything with “8125” in the name. Also have /etc/modprobe.d/r8169_blacklist.conf with only 1 line content blacklist r8169 inside it. Probably the 8125B doesn’t use this 8169 driver anyway, so this can stay?
Keeping the old ones. Will the UUID’s of the drives stay the same, so the booting and mounting part will stay intact at least from drive part?
OMG OMG OMG… found solution in Manjaro forums. @ myself. I have no effing idea, why it didn’t even notice this “manjaro” partition in UEFI before… I guess I did’t even go into this sub-sub-sub-menu before.
MSI UEFI > Advanced Settings > Boot > UEFI Hard Disk Drive BBS Priorities > Boot Option #1 > manjaro
(before manjaro was #2 and #1 was INTEL NVMEsomething; swapped their places and fixed!!!)
