    Can I run a live cd and attach another hardrive and do this.
    Please help I am not the greatest in linux. I have been using ubuntu for studies and need my work back
    Yes you can migrate from a root.disk. The instructions shown here are for someone who wants to replace windows, but they're good for migrating a root.disk from a live CD to any partition: http://askubuntu.com/a/93963/14916

    However, if you're having problems booting or root.disk corruption (which I noticed from your other thread) then you could have issues depending on what the problem is.

    yes I am issues booting up. I tried everything but keeping getting a blinking cursor in the top left hand corner. I don't want to loose all that work. So I am desperate. I keep doing chkdsk /r and trying what ever I can to boot up

    Please run the bootinfoscript and post the results. See if you can mount the root.disk and if not, fsck it.

    Try editing the grub menu entry (hit E) remove 'quiet splash' and see where it halts.

    These are just a few ideas. Sometimes corruption occurs on the internal ext4 filesystem with Wubi, and sometimes on ntfs. If it's internal, then running chkdsk won't help.

    You need to fsck the root.disk:
    Code:
    sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
    sudo fsck /mnt/ubuntu/disks/root.disk

    Boot from the Ubuntu CD, select "Try Ubuntu". When you see the desktop, drop to a terminal Ctrl+Alt+T and run those commands I gave you.
    The first mounts the ntfs partition /dev/sda1
    The second runs fsck on the root.disk file residing on /dev/sda1 - to fix the internal ext4 file system within the file.

    You can run also add the options -vy to fsck (v=verbose, y=fix without prompting) i.e. sudo fsck -vy /mnt/ubuntu/disks/root.disk

    Question Re: HOWTO: migrate wubi install to partition

    thank you bcbc for the help.
    I just proceed without a swap. I don't really know what swap is actually.Now i have more problems. I still have the wubi installation in one separate drive so now i have two disk from the first wubi install (in saparate drive) and one from migration. How do I uninstalled my wubi ? I tried to uninstall from the control panel in windows but i got an error that say that the target is not found or something like that ( I don't remember ).
    In the beginning i install ubuntu from wubi and i happen to format the drive on which ubuntu was. So i install again and i got two ubuntu in the boot menu entries. I install easyBCD in windows to delete one entry ( as suggested by someone in google ). It work but now i uninstall easyBCD and tried to uninstall wubi but i got the error as describe before.How do I rmove my wubi ? shall i just format the drive ?
    Another problem is i got the normal boot menu and when i choose windows it shows me another boot menu to choose from. One is windows 7 and one is ubuntu which i guess the one through wubi.How do i fix this.
    thanks.

    You can use either easybcd or bcdedit (Microsofts built in command line tool) to remove the Wubi Ubuntu entry from the Windows boot manager. For bcdedit, go to an administrator command prompt and enter: bcdedit
    This will output the windows boot manager entries. Note the {GUID} for Ubuntu and delete it with:
    Code:
    bcdedit /delete {GUID}
    Please also review how to manually remove Wubi which may be necessary if the automatic uninstall doesn't work.
