    lvm: boot form logical volume (hard disk) ??

    Hi all, Managed to boot from a locgical volume. This is what I did; Left 'boot.cmd" untouced Edited '/boot/armbianEnv.txt': 'rootdev=/dev/mapper/langate-root--new' This is it, basically. Of course I hat to boot at least one time before from sd-card and did: sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade sudo apt install lvm2 After booting from hard disk I disabled zram and ramlog sudo apt install zram-config sudo systemctl disable zram-config sudo systemctl disable armbian-ramlog reboot
  2. Hi all, does anyone know how to boot from a locgical volume? the volume group is located on a mbr-parted partition (/dev/sda5) Disk /dev/sda: 465.8 GiB, 500107862016 bytes, 976773168 sectors Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes Disklabel type: dos Disk identifier: 0x00002074 Device Boot Start End Sectors Size Id Type /dev/sda1 2048 499711 497664 243M 82 Linux swap / Solaris /dev/sda2 501758 976771071 976269314 465.5G 5 Extended /dev/sda5 501760 976771071 976269312 465.5G 8e Linux LVM I dont' dare to execute nand-sata-install 'cause it does recognize just the MBR-Partitions. It seems to me that it will overwrite the volume group. Currently I'm running bananian from the disk. Added an new root-lv "/dev/langate/root-new" and rsynced the root-fs from the sd-card to the new root-lv. Patched /boot/boot.cmd, executed 'mkimage -C none -A arm -T script -d /boot/boot.cmd /boot/boot.scr'. It doesn't function. I can't describe the error-messages right now further. Logical volumes look like this: ACTIVE '/dev/langate/root' [2.00 GiB] inherit ACTIVE '/dev/langate/swap_1' [1004.00 MiB] inherit ACTIVE '/dev/langate/usr' [8.00 GiB] inherit ACTIVE '/dev/langate/home' [2.00 GiB] inherit ACTIVE '/dev/langate/var' [12.00 GiB] inherit ACTIVE '/dev/langate/data' [438.54 GiB] inherit ACTIVE '/dev/langate/root-new' [2.00 GiB] inherit
