magic f-drive does nothing, neither does magic availible

Post by adamc867 » Sun Feb 27, 2005 12:52 am

i just installed a 120GB drive and tranfered my existing gentoox install from the previous drive to the new drive (still on e). I would like to move the gentoox install to the f drive where I have 105GB free.
I have allready run magic, which ran and said
ALL DONE
GOODBYE!
--------------------------------------------------------------------
NO REBOOT NECESSARY
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Then I ran magic f-drive and it seemed to do the exact same thing. It seems like the f-drive option is not doing anything.
Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

update:
I tried to run magic availible
It seems that when I type magic anything
the anything is ignored and magic is run like it would without the extra statement

Spelling `available` correctly usually helps.

Download Resctoox and use that to move your Gentoox installation to F.

Yes, magic f-drive has been deprecated for about a month now. It got moved to resctoox.

Good process - but bad result.

The move worked but now Gentoox will not load.

See this thread: typed it last night: viewtopic.php?t=2571&highlight=resctoox+hd
