    Import windows settings after install

    Is there a way to transfer the settings from windows to ubuntu (the ones that you are given the choice of during the install) after installing ubuntu?

    I realise that, but that doesn't help me if ubuntu is already installed.

    I would like to know as well, anyone know what the script that does this is called? Know any way for me to boot off the livecd and just run THAT BIT or anything? I don't want to format and repartition, I want to just move the mydocs, settings etc.

    You can manually move them they're not that hard to find.
    Otherwise, I'm not sure.

    what a bummer that noone has ever answered this question. If anyone could help that'd be great.
