Hello,

Can I install Ubuntu from an installation of Ubuntu, rather than using the installation CD?

Specifically, I have Ubuntu 10.04 installed (and bootable) on an SD card, and would like to install from Ubuntu (running on the SD card) to the netbook's hard drive.

Thanks!

You would have to have the ISO on your SD card and use grub to boot it. You would just have to make sure no install partitions are mounted which should be ok if you are booting the ISO.

Direct boot on hard drive:
