I'm trying to migrate a laptop's HDD to another HDD. I'm trying to find a way to use Ubuntu Live USB with persistence and run tools such as this! I tried disc copy bootable linux distro, didn't work. Any help would be great!
I would use a usb to Sata or IDE adapter, a live CD and hook up the old HD to the new computer via the adapter.
Then you should be able to run the following command in a terminal window:
Note that you will need to determine what the path is to the old and new disk...
The new one will most likely be /dev/sda... the way to determine that with a GUI is to use 'Disk Utility' and look under the 'device' area.
Depending on the size of your disk this can take quite a while.
