    Re: HOWTO: migrate wubi install to partition

    Hi. Add me to your growing fan base.

    Finding your script and this article solved a number of headaches for me. I have spent weeks getting LVPM to work, and when it seemed to me that I won't be able to, I thought I was in serious trouble. I have tried other tools as well, not just LVPM.

    It started way way back. There is something between the CD/DVD device on my computer and ubuntu/linux distros. It's not media; it is not hardware. My WinXP, running on the same computer, reads, checks and verifies these distros without any problem. The same with my son's Ubuntu machine. But for whatever reason, my computer simply won't run those distros live from the cd the way they were meant to.

    My machine does not boot from a USB stick, either.

    A few years back, the only way I was able to dual boot a winxp and an ubuntu 8.04 on my machine was via wubi, and then onto separate partitions with lvpm afterwards. I am not a techie; the pc/linux/win world is alien territory to me. So you could very well imagine how difficult and painful this was for me. Even days afterwards, I still dreaded the thought that I may have to go through it again.

    To cut this short: it's been a great relief to me when I saw your script worked.

    Thank you very much.

    Thanks - I appreciate the complement

    (I have to reiterate that I just patched and enhanced Agostino Russo's original script. I don't want to take credit for his work.)

    Did you notice any other errors before this? Post the terminal output between [CODE][/CODE] tags.


    Try:
    Code:
    grub-install --recheck /dev/sda

    trying

    Code:
    root@ubuntu:~# grub-install --recheck /dev/sda
    Probing devices to guess BIOS drives. This may take a long time.
