[SOLVED]Moving from one computer to another

HI! I installed archlinux on external hard disk. I run arch from different computers, and if I succeful run on old computers (lga775), I can't to run on new computers (lga1155). I see error "device... UUID... not found" and rootfs shell.
if I try again to run on old computer - arch starts.
after from livecd "mkinitcpio -p linux" in new computer, arch starts, but doesn't start in old computer (similar error).
how to solve this problem without livecd?

Re: [SOLVED]Moving from one computer to another

mkinitcpio creates 2 images :
1 tailored to the computer it's run on, initramfs-linux.img .
the other one ( initramfs-linux-fallback.img ) is intended to boot on as many computers as possible.

Try booting the fallback image on both systems.


Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them
