So, I've been trying out garuda for a few days on an installation on an usb stick, and was pretty satisfied with it, so I decided to get a real hard drive and move my installation onto it. I thought I'd use clonezilla for that, booted up the livecd, etc. When stqrting to clone, it gave me an error message: apparently, the USB had both MBR and GPT. After a bit of googling, I saw that this could easily be fixed by opening the drive in
gdisk, picking between GPT and MBT, and saving the thing.
So, I did that. I recalled selecting GPT at some point while installing garuda, so I picked that one. I, of course, had made a backup with fdisk beforehand, on the disk where I wanted to move my installation. Seeing both my partitions present qnd of the right size, I assumed all was good, and carried on with the copy, which deleted the GPT backup. Upon rebooting though, all I was met with is the word
GRUB (different of the usual
Welcome to GRUB!), and nothing happening.
I booted the Live CD, and couldn't mount my partitions. I opened gparted, and I saw this:
My partitions were there with the flags and names, but the filesystem is not recognized anymore. Same with my original USB. I guess some kind of information must have been corrupted when using
gdisk, but I couldn't find any resources that looked helpful.
I hope someone with more experience will be able to tell me what is going on and maybe how to fix it. I really hope that data is not gone even though it hasn't been terribly long since I've started to use this system
In the meantime, I've been running gparted's "Partition rescue tool" for 2 hours now with no signs of progression Thanks in advance for any help
