Thanks. That is good to know. This time, I already fixed my DHCP to 
assign old IP and changed the hostname to old name. So, I am good. 
However, this is a must know before next migration (may be in another 
10+ years). So, I will add to my notes.

Only this installation has the reboot issue. I have another parallel 
install in the same disk (debian bookworm/testing) and that shutsdown 
fine. Since mythtv migration is by image copy of the old installation, 
something in it is getting confused with the new hardware. Further, I 
only moved my sas 9211 HBA, but not the nvidia video card. I will 
experiment by bringing that card to see if that fixes the problem. I 
know it sounds strange, but I have a remote theory why the combo might 
work but not just HBA. Let us see how correct I am.
