How to replace my disk without having to rebuild my Ubuntu install?
I've copied it and I believe that it is now booting from the right place - but I'm not really sure how I got there. I'd like to:
- verify My Ubuntu install is now booting from the new disk (and maybe understand for sure how I did it).
- delete the other partitions (That's easy with fdisk - but I'm afraid to do anything now because it got so messed up before.
- Then expand my Ubuntu partition so it has more room. (Again I know how to add blocks with fdisk but I'm afraid to do that without some advise. From what I've read it can get messed up easily.)
- Clean the junk out of the boot menu
- Then reinstall windows 8 on the other HDD and either not let it overwrite the MBR on the drive Grub2 is booting from, or just recover Grub2 afterwards.
