these 2 lines can be ignored. Are there anything else on your screen?

I cannot ignore because it stuck on those 2 lines. Nothing more happen. Maybe I will clone old sd-card to new card and then restore backup?

these 2 lines should be ignored as they are not relevant at all. vcsm shared memory service is expected to fail when running an RPi in headless mode (16 MiB GPU memory split). Anyway these lines will be gone on next release as they are creating way to much confusion https://github.com/MichaIng/DietPi/pull/3900

can you check your /boot/cmdline.txt file. You should be able to open the file on a desktop computer as well. because file is located on BootFS. Does it contain the word quiet?? If yes remove it and try to boot again. Hopefully it will show some more error messages now.

Personally I would not clone the old SD card. There is a chance to clone corrupted blocks as well :?

This is `/boot/cmdline.txt from that new Dietpi installed and stuck on boot.

` console=tty1 root=PARTUUID=6c586e13-02 rootfstype=ext4 elevator=deadline fsck.repair=yes rootwait quiet net.ifnames=0`

This time something else. Stuck on that.

and when unplug usb HDD and keyboard:

Edit. I make corrupted sd card image and burn with etcher to new sd-card. I start Rpi4 and also see mmcblk errors, like in corrupted sd-card. So maybe card isn't corrupted. There was also many other errors like `FAILED to start RPC bind portmap service` or Failed to start Raise network interface`.

https://freeimage.host/i/KKtcQf

and it stuck at `dietpi-services: start : cron`

Maybe I need to delete something from /rootfs partition to make it start and then I will restore with Dietpi-Backup? What do You think?

Regards.

Hi, @Joulinar is it possible to just mount my dietpi_userdata to new installation of Dietpi on new sd-card? I have that folder on externel HDD and I'm afraid that when I run that option I will lose my data from HDD. Maybe I will just copy some folders and files from old installation to new one manually? Can You help me?

Regards.

yes you can create the link from user data to your HDD yourself. However this will bring back your user data only. All applications/software you would need to install again manually as they are not located on user data directory.

Hi @Joulinar Can You tell me if I do this with new installation in dietpi-drive-manager that will move dietpi_userdata from new installation to my HDD and replace old dietpi_userdata? Or is there option to just mount/link old dietpi_userdata? If I have to do it manually can You tell me how to do it wright?
I want to ask You also about apps. I will install my apps and to restore configs can I copy installation folders from old sd-card. Can You tell if Dietpi save config folders in /home like other linux distros or I have to look for every single app for example in /opt etc.?
Regards.
