Need help with full SD card backup


This is the first time ever I am trying to backup my RPi with HA. I used Win32DiskImager to create *.img file. After that, I wrote this file to another SD card.

I used this new card for some other testing and it worked. I formatted card before I wrote this image.

When I try to start my RPi HA with this new card, it stop loading and I receive an error:

    end Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mound root fs on unknows-block(179,2)

Can someone help me? What am I doing wrong?
Thank you.

It suggests either a bad copy, or a bad SD card.

For making images, you may want to try rpi-clone, since you can create the image from the RPi, while it’s running.
