I have a 1.5TB hard drive (5200 RPM), and need to speed up the system a little bit, so I was wondering if a 128GB SSD would work to transfer Ubuntu (12.04) on the SSD and use the current HD for back up/storage/expansion drive. On the current HD I use Virtualbox to run Win XP).
I know how to install a new drive (in this case a SSD) and eventually with a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04 on it, what I wonder is this:
- how can I transfer the current ubuntu (including VirtualBox) on the new SSD?
- at start up, how do i tell Ubuntu that the main drive is now the SSD drive?
