I'm new to Linux, and trying to develop a strategy to recover from HD failure if it occurs. I have two HD's. On my primary HD I have two partitions, Linux and Swap. My backup HD is a single partition. I have captured and saved the primary drive's MBR to my backup HD, along with an image of my primary Linux partition (using partimage).
In the event of primary HD failure, I would install, partition and format a new HD using RescueCD (two partitions, Linux and Swap). This disk would likely be larger than my old disk. I would restore the MBR, then restore the Linux image.
Would this procedure work, or would all hell break loose?
