View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Installation Questions

Hey guys, I have an installation question.
Here is my current setup:

Hard drive 1 : NTFS, Windows XP
Hard drive 2 : ext3, Ubuntu 8.04

I believe Hard drive 2 is dying and want to install ubuntu 8.10 on hard drive 1. What's the best way to go about doing this? Because I still need Grub menu to work as well. I want to take hard drive 2 out as well. Should I format Hard drive 2 and then take it out, before installing 8.10, or should I do the install and partition, and then format and take hard drive 2 out?

Best to do clean install of 8.10. Save data, take the hard drive out and install Ubuntu.

Decided to just do complete format and reinstalls.
