clone WD network drive

Asustek computer inc. / P5p800
November 8, 2011 at 01:44:40
Specs: Windows XP, P4 3GHz/ 2GB
1.with ACRONIS WD Edition made "clone",
(Acronis discover partitions as Linux Array)
Before "Proceed", displays message that'll be necessary for booting the cloned drive to make boot floppy from linux.img.
2. When "cloning" finished, there are 4 partitions. With Ubuntu, it's possible to approuch to partitions, but of coarse, this cloned hdd can't boot.

So, where to put this boot programs, (kernel), what type of Linux, with what to put boot procedure from floppy to the hard? Again, we are talking about WD network drive. It has its own network case with network card etc.

Thanks.

The usual way to boot a network drive is with iscsi or other advanced network install. You can't clone a local drive to a network and expect it to work.

Also you said that an array was the original. Not sure in all cases an array would clone to some single disk. Might be as simple as wrong uuid or boot reference like sda or sba or such.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

well, yes :)
but, when the cloning has done and I start Ubuntu, I can see 4 partitions. Simply don't know where to put boot programs, on which partition. OK, there are only 4 of it and could try, but here it is the first problemo, how boot sequence puts to disk :(.
Suppose that I have linux.img (boot) on floppy. How to copy it to hard?
How to (suppose) put there only essential programs for network drive (do not need screen, for example) just network and boot ...

Thnx.
