    Hi, Iam new here....
    I installed server with ubuntu 6.06 LTS and VMWare step by step as here in HowtoForge described. My Server(-1) hat processor AMD Athlon and 256MBRam. The system with vmware is not bad but to slow. I will now place the harddisk (ubuntu+vmware) in another PC (Server-2) with better configuration (Intel LGA dual core 2.8GHz and 1GBRam). I know, that can not booting. Somebody maybe can help me to make the harddisk bootable in the Server-2 without new installation? costed 2 days to download. Thanks.

    Modern kernel detect a lot of hardware (plug&play). But maybe the NIC on your motherboard is not supported (too old, too new)? Search on the Internet for 'Ubuntu <your NICtypecard>' and maybe you'll find a suggestion. Replace Ubuntu with Debian if you have no luck. LTS 6.06 is maybe too old also. You might wanna try 6.10. (or even the now rather stable beta 'Ubuntu Feisty')

    Hi martinfst,

    I have after update and upgrade via internet ubuntu 6.10, first install was from dvd ubuntu 6.06. :) By new install can the onboard network card detected also supported, no problemo. But wenn the harddisk (linux inside) from one pc with other network card (DFE-583TX) is inserted (put in) the other pc, here with onboard network card, can after booting no network card detected - no plug & play.

    What is to do, so can the system detect network card in the new pc (new environment, e.g board upgrade)?
    Can somebody help me, please...THANKS...

    Sorry with my English, I hope you understand what i wrote.

    Can you transfer the NIC also to the new system? And just "forget" for now the onboard NIC?

    Sorry, yes a NIC is a Network Interface Card. Via Rhine II is a NIC. Is this card in your old or new system?

    Switch the network hardware. Take the D-LINK DFE-538TX from your old system and put it in the new system. I recall having tremendous problems with a Via Rhine II onboard network card. I tried compiling new kernels, fetching device drivers from obscure sites, trying to upgrade the system board bios, which in the end destroyed my motherboard. Buy a cheap new network card if you can't transfer the old NIC.
