    If you are going to install Ubuntu Server and then install the ubuntu-desktop package on it you may as well just install the desktop version of Ubuntu to start with, you end up with exactly the same system.

    But as to your question, you should be able to back up the .deb files found in /var/apt/cache/ and then restore them to the new installation before installing ubuntu-desktop.

    Does

    Code:
    fdisk -l
    show a new sd* device? Without GUI, you have to mount device with the 'mount' command and unmount with the 'umount' (sic) command.
