    Re: HOWTO: migrate wubi install to partition

    I just wanted to say thank you for a great utility. Migrated my WUBI install to a 750GB hard drive with no issue whatsoever and everything works perfectly.

    I have been a Windows Sys Admin for several years, and am greatly enjoying the level of support I am receiving from the Linux community as a whole. Its a far cry better than what I am used to.

    Keep up the GREAT WORK!!!

    Re: HOWTO: migrate wubi install to partition

    Hi there.

    Thank you for this amazing script. I've used this several times to migrate wubi installs.

    I have a question though. Will this method work to migrate linux mint 11 that's installed via mint4win? LM 11 is based upon ubuntu and the mint4win is based on wubi. Will it be able to migrate?

    I've never used Mint4win, so I can't make any guarantees. But I'd expect that if Mint is comparable to the current Ubuntu setup (in terms of the versions of grub/lupin/etc), it should be compatible with the migration script.

    You should be able to try it without risk to mint4win with the --no-bootloader option. If that works fine then running it normally will probably work as well.

    PS Thanks for the feedback - let us know how it goes.

    Re: HOWTO: migrate wubi install to partition

    Doesn't work guys. When i enter, "sudo bash wubi-move-2.0.sh /dev/sdb2", it returns the message "invalid wubi format or incorrect root.disk"


    Are there any other ways to do this?

    Ah okay. I was a little strict about validating the wubi install and since I don't use Mint.... I didn't consider it, but obviously it's not going to be in the \ubuntu directory)

    Code:
        # Irregular root.disk - don't allow (at this time) since it's possible
        # to migrate using the --root-disk= option anyway.
        if [ "$loop_file" != "/host/ubuntu/disks/root.disk" ]; then
            return 2 # migrate not permitted
        fi
    What is the content of your /etc/fstab file?

    PS or you could edit the script - just put '#' before each of those lines:

    Code:
        # Irregular root.disk - don't allow (at this time) since it's possible
        # to migrate using the --root-disk= option anyway.
        #if [ "$loop_file" != "/host/ubuntu/disks/root.disk" ]; then
        #    return 2 # migrate not permitted
        #fi

    I am writing from a fresh transfer of kubuntu into its own 500GB partition, so it is obviously working. Thank you for sharing this excellent script.

    Re: HOWTO: migrate wubi install to partition

    I finally did it, and it went FLAWLESSLY. usually that never happens to me, but anyway. I didn't use any swap partition.

    great work, and many thanks!

    btw, it's now safe for me to uninstall/delete the ubuntu installation I did in windows beofre, or is it? what I actually want is not to have any OS selection menu after I choose windows in the ubuntu grub.

    thanks again!
