Change UUID or serial number of a EXT4, swap, VFAT, FAT16 or FAT32 partition
Is it an EXT4 partition?
tune2fs -U "<UUID>" /dev/sdXY
Is it a swap partition?
If you have not used it, first do: mkswap /dev/sdXY swaplabel -U "<UUID>" /dev/sdXY
Is it a VFAT, FAT16 or FAT32 partition?
If you do not have mlabel, install it by: apt install mtools A FAT partition has a serial number in a format like XXXX-YYYY, in the command below omit the - from the serial number. mlabel -N XXXXYYYY -i /dev/sdXY ::
