    OK that looks good. Did it work alright?

    EDIT: I just noticed that windows isn't in your grub2 menu. Boot into the new target and run "sudo update-grub" and see whether it picks it up.

    Re: HOWTO: migrate wubi install to partition

    I have an issue with my migration to a partition. I used the script from wubiGiude.org and the shell script wubi-move-to-partition,

    everything seemed to go well except there was no entry for the new ubuntu partition in grub when the computer started, I have already uninstalled wubi via windows. I now have a ubuntu partition that I can't access can some please help me out?

    That script doesn't work - I don't know why they haven't removed it yet. It assumes grub-legacy is installed, and uses commands that are deprecated. However, the copying of all your data should have been ok... so should be fixable.

    Please create a new thread and edit your above post with a link to it, and include the results of the bootinfoscript. I'll come and find it.

    Should I run it from a live CD?

    Re: HOWTO: migrate wubi install to partition

    barnesk9, please edit your previous post and put [CODE] at the top, and [/CODE] at the bottom. It makes it more readable. Also I'd like you to create a new thread. You can add a link to it here or I will - so people can follow if they're interested, but it's not an issue with this particular howto and belongs in a different thread.

    Thanks.

    Thanks, bcbc, your automated migration worked very well for me.
