Jeroen was right and Kai-Olaf in the linked post too :-) 

	I've to change the bootloader settings in sles11 via yast *before*
I'm taking a backup. 

	I suggest to do the following steps: 

	- change fstab-settings via yast or manually (e.g. /dev/cciss/c0d0p1
instead of /dev/disk/by-ID/...) 

	- change bootloader via yast (let yast propose a new configuration
and set bootloader location to mbr instead of root-partition) 

	- change /boot/grub/device.map  manually from e.g. (hd0)
/dev/disk/by-ID/xxx to hd(0) /dev/cciss/c0d0 

	after these steps there are a correct /etc/grub.conf. 

	Backup and recovery works well now. 



	btw. why can't be recovered a bootloader which resides in boot sector
of a partition instead mbr? Maybe a  bug in SLES, there is rear (in
version 1.7.x) included (HA extension)?
