Backup gone wrong

https://bbs.archlinux.org – So I recovered everything but the system doesn't even boot.Unless you have a separate boot partition, you also need to reinstall the bootloader if you want it to actually boot. Because simply restoring the files doesn't automatically mean that it's bootable. For example, if you had the boot partition mounted on the other Linux distribution, it probably overwrote your kernel (vmlinuz-linux, the bootloader's config file, etc).Next time use rsync, or, if you plan on restoring it to the same partition (and if you have enough space), make a dd backup of the partition.# dd if=/de (HowTos)
