CLOSED: Failed Motherboard

Postby evylrat » Mon May 09, 2016 11:46 pm

I'm running Ubuntu version of Amahi 6.
My motherboard has failed, booting isn't possible anymore.

I've got my OS drive, and 3 storage drives. Is there any harm in plugging the OS drive into another motherboard and booting up?
I ran the upgrade script a while ago, perhaps I can use this fail to move to the latest version of Amahi.

It should but you may have to make some minor tweaks to the OS.

You might want to check out the post-install hardware change wiki guidance.

Awesome! Pity I'm too lazy in the first place, that new server has sat there for 12 months now!
Thanks for the reply.

Just for anyone reading this, plugging my OS into completely different hardware has worked fine. Everything is intact and running so far as I can see. Greyhole is functional as before.
