I have been working on a Mac for a few years (web applications developer, python/django) but running Ubuntu Desktop 12.04 as a VM using VirtualBox. I have a very comfortable dev environment configured in Ubuntu and want to completely ditch OSX and use Ubuntu as my primary OS. Is there any way I can move my Ubuntu installation from the VM to a partition as the primary boot OS? I want to do it without having to go through the process of completely reinstalling and reconfiguring a brand new Ubuntu install? I've invested too much time in configuring things to have to start all over.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
