Re: Linux Boot


I know nothing about Linux (and, BTW, you have posted this in the Microsoft forum), but on other systems, unless your software has 'bare-metal restore' capability, you must install a rudimentary OS capability, then install the backup-restore software you used to create the backup tape, then perform a restore function using the 'overwrite files' capability.


Otherwise, try posting the appropriate servers forum.

Make a great day!
