Looking for PSmith or another Linux expert here.
I've done this procedure numerous times over the years. After issues with builds higher than 0.3.3-7 years ago, figured if it ain't broke, go with what you know.
First this afternoon took a filled 1TB Drive out of a Genie and copied to a 2TB Drive using 0.3.3-7
8 hours later, success, reinstall, everything is fine.
Took out a second 1TB Drive to clone to a 3TB Drive. This is first 3TB Drive.
I make sure 3TB is on device 0 and 1TB is on device 1.
I see this in the bios at startup
When 0.3.3-7 starts, I can see it recognizes the 3TB and the 1TB in GPart.
Go through mkdirs and mounts - then the xfsdump and xfsrestore.
Takes 9 seconds and says "success" files copied.
I realize something is seriously wrong. Thinking I somehow copied the 3TB to the 1TB. Check connections again. Everything is correct. Then thinking I must have somehow f'ed up my 1TB with the Programs, I put it back in the Genie.
Luckily, everything is fine.
So, I repeat everything again with the same outcome after 9 seconds.
Only thing I think of is that even though the bios and program are recognizing the 3TB Drive, the older program cannot handle.
So I burn 0.16.1-1
Delete everything off the new 3TB. Put back in Genie. Formats. Clean shutdown.
Boot with 0.16.1-1
Again, 0.16.1-1 sees both drives. Everything is where its suppose to be.
But now, when I type mkdir /mnt/fap I get "permission denied"
Even 0.3.7-1 let me create the directories with no issues.
EDIT: for future pioneers, with 0.16.1-1 you need to be in root to create a directory, which is why I got permission denied. For whatever reason, you do not end up in root when you open terminal.
To enter a root SHELL, open the terminal and type "sudo -i" and enter.
Now you can type the usual commands, ie mkdir /mnt/fap and they will work properly.
