    Or is that just an older file? Sorry if I answered my own question.
    Yeah that's just a bit of history. I haven't removed any scripts, but all you need is the latest (2.1).

    One other question, hopefully you see this soon, how should i designate the partition of my hard drive? Meaning should I make it another drive or something else? Also how and when do I make a Ubuntu /home partition and how to get settings there or will they automatically go after migration?

    You have to supply the target partition to the script. So if you're migrating to /dev/sda5 you'd run:
    Code:
    sudo bash wubi-move-2.1.sh /dev/sda5
    The script will ensure that it's a valid partition.

    The 2.1 release only supports migration to a single target partition. I do have a new version that supports migration to separate partitions, but it's not something in great demand so I'm not planning to release it any time soon. However, if you want it you can get it here: https://github.com/bcbc/Wubi-move/zipball/proposed
    If you choose to use it, you could migrate e.g. to /dev/sda5 (root) and /dev/sda6 (/home) as follows:
    Code:
    ###Note that the script is called wubi-move.sh in that zip
    sudo bash wubi-move.sh --home=/dev/sda6 /dev/sda5
    If you don't use the 'proposed' script and want to manually create a separate /home partition after the fact, then you'd follow the standard guides out there to copy /home to the partition, update /etc/fstab.

    Re: HOWTO: migrate wubi install to partition

    Well I am going to create one primary partition and a small swap partition, so there will only be 3 partitions, sda3 and ada4 if my thinking is correct, but should i create one smaller partition in front to create a /home partition inside Ubuntu thus making the migration sda4 and sad5. Also I am creating partitions inside Windows, so how should i name the partitions, its where I a little fuzzy?

    Sorry about all the questions, as you can tell i am learning.

    You shouldn't create the partitions in Windows - you can make space for them in Windows, but you should create them in Ubuntu because Windows cannot create ext4 or swap partitions.

    You don't have to name the partitions (that's the label). I'm referring to the partition device as Ubuntu refers to it, so the first hard drive is designated /dev/sda and the primary partitions will be numbered 1 2 3 4. Logical partitions are numbered 5 6 7 8 etc. So the first logical partition is /dev/sda5

    You can only have 4 primary partitions (max) but if one of these is an extended partition you can create many logical partitions. So, I recommend created a single extended partition with as much space as you want to assign to Ubuntu, and then creating as many logical partitions as you need.
    If you are planning to create a separate partition for /home you should do this upfront.

    Re: HOWTO: migrate wubi install to partition

    Thank you for all your help, I decided to just start from scratch and do a true duel boot, I did the resize last night and wasn't enough still, for what i am trying to do. So I am sure we will cross paths again, again thanks for the help.

    Re: HOWTO: migrate wubi install to partition

    bariamtak,

    You should create a swap partition if you want it. Wubi uses a swap file, but if you migrate without a swap partition, your migrated install wont't have any swap.

    You also don't have any ext4 partitions to migrate to. While the older versions of the migration can migrate to a partition marked as ntfs (type 7) - and it works fine, because it still replaces the file system with ext4 - it's better to replace the ntfs partition with a new ext4 partition as it will avoid confusion later.

    So use the newest version of the script 2.1, and it won't let you proceed unless your target is a valid, empty linux partition (type 83) and if you want a swap it has to be type 82.
