Hello,

when sco issue this warning it is because the disk controler is different from the original machine.

to correct this issue you need the boot and root diskettes created from the OLD computer and the "BTLD" driver for the new disk controler.

on the new computer, boot with the diskette using the following command:
defbootstr link=ad320 root=ad320(0,0,0)

where "link=ad320" stands for the driver name
and "root=ad320(0,0,0,0)" tell sco what the hard drive address is. (controler #,bus #, disk id#, lun always 0)

This example is for an adaptec SCSI 320 controler, you need to adapt the command according to the controler installed.

hello,

you must select same hardware first and same os install on other harddirve
and dump data on new harddrive.
or what was backup you taken with acronis in new hardware just switch
your harddisk card controller and other card in new machine.
