Can you please provide the engine logs where the boot success/failure of master and clone
can be seen?
here it is:
Starting point 15:16 both powered off.
First message with 15:17 is boot of sl1432b that is the master and boots ok.
First message with 15:21 is boot of slclone that is the clone.
The slackware OS uses lilo as boot loader and on master it is
configured this way at the moment:
root@sl1432b:~# grep -v ^# /etc/lilo.conf
boot = /dev/vda
bitmap = /boot/slack.bmp
bmp-colors = 255,0,255,0,255,0
bmp-table = 60,6,1,16
bmp-timer = 65,27,0,255
timeout = 50
vga = normal
disk=/dev/vda bios=0x80 max-partitions=7
image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/vda2
initrd = /boot/initrd.gz
label = Linux
The "disk=..." entry was added to be able to support boot from device
of type vda in slackware, that doesn't support it ootb..
