    eee pc 901 UNR partition switch

    I installed UNR on my 4gb partition on my eee pc 901. I would like to use the 8gb partition. I know I can just start over using the 8gb partition but I was wondering if there is anyway to just simply move the OS from the 4gb to the 8gb. Anything?

    I'd try booting from a liveCD in an external CD device, and then copying the data from one to the other using the dd command.
    You'd need to be careful about the parameters for this command, or face a bit of sorting out.

    Then you have to sort out the booting, as you want to use the files in the other partition - OK if you know what to do, but you may need to do some reading.

    Thanks for the advice. I'll research this and find out more but I will make sure that I fully understand what I am doing before I do it. I'm not worried about losing any data if anything bad happens because I have it all backed up on my timecapsule. If there are anymore suggestions that anyone has I would definitaly read into it.
