  1. [ubuntu] Re: Essential Repartition Too Tricky for this Newb

    When I go to that screen, it doesn't seem to make any difference whether or not the external drive or a usb (both with the iso) are plugged in.

    As for the backup: The drive didn't seem to want to...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Essential Repartition Too Tricky for this Newb

    I suppose I can try that. Not sure there'll be enough room on the drive without some sorta compression ...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: Essential Repartition Too Tricky for this Newb

    Btw, I'm fine with following any method of backing up my files anyone might suggest, so long as it


    can save files from multiple partitions
    doesn't involve installing any programs (not enough...

  6. [ubuntu] Re: Essential Repartition Too Tricky for this Newb

    The only one I'm trying to follow is this for backing up my files; however, until I find a way to control where it saves the backup file, it's kinda useless (for a little bit more info, see this...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Essential Repartition Too Tricky for this Newb

    An external storage device, rather. There's not enough space on the thumb drive to store the iso. And again, my cd drive doesn't work.
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Essential Repartition Too Tricky for this Newb

    Okay, apparently I needed to enter the boot device selection menu (or something like that), but it's still not working. The external drive has only been used with a unpartitioned Windows machine (and...

  10. [ubuntu] Re: Essential Repartition Too Tricky for this Newb

    There's a number of even older versions of my ancient kernel, restore mode, as well as Windows (which actually wouldn't work, as I gutted its system files). I don't see any new options ... is it ok...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Essential Repartition Too Tricky for this Newb

    I keep fiddling, yet the new option is not showing up in the BIOS menu.

    Also, how do I save the backup to the external drive rather than somewhere in root?

  13. [ubuntu] Re: Essential Repartition Too Tricky for this Newb

    Ok, I finally have the Ubuntu ISO mounted, but not a clue how to boot it.

    I have very very limited space on my system, so if I were to (re?)install from the iso (as per this), it may be very...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Essential Repartition Too Tricky for this Newb

    I don't have a functioning CD drive. That's why I put the GParted iso on a usb.

    Should download another copy of Ubuntu onto an external drive?
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Essential Repartition Too Tricky for this Newb

    How do I move the .tgz/.tar.bz2 backup file onto an external drive? (As per this tutorial) I can't open the folder my most recent backup is in (root), and the tutorial doesn't explain how to change...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Essential Repartition Too Tricky for this Newb

    The option to resize is greyed out on the right-click menu. (This is why I haven't repartitioned - something's not working properly.)
  17. [ubuntu] Re: Essential Repartition Too Tricky for this Newb

    When I unmount the large partition, it puts that caution symbol next to the device's name.

    Any I don't know what I'm doing - and I don't want to lose all my data just fooling around .... when I...

    I switched to Ubuntu a couple of years ago. I love how my old machine runs infinitely better than it did on Windows. Once I get my system updated, I'm soo looking forward to getting...

    Ah, sorry, forgot to mention - my CD drive has been out of commission for years :-/.
