I have a Google Cr-48 notebook. The SSD only has 6 gb that I am comfortable allocating to Ubuntu. I need to move /usr to an external HDD. I also will move my /Home to another partition on the drive. I am going to specify the requirements that I must meet.
- I CANNOT install Ubuntu again
- I CANNOT use LiveUSB or LiveCD or LiveDVD
- I CANNOT boot the entire OS from the USB Drive
- I CANNOT do anything that requires GRUB (GRUB IS NOT INSTALLED OR UTILIZED, TRUST ME I AM CERTAIN)
- I CANNOT boot into Recovery Mode (reboot recovery or pressing button as both require GRUB) at all
I want to know if it can be done and how it can be done in detail. I have tried this many times. Each time something new went wrong.
I am asking for assistance on how to do something, I don't want anyone saying "moving the /usr directory is a bad idea" or anything of that nature. If I had another option that I felt comfortable with I wouldn't be asking this question.
Any assistance that anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated. I will provide more details in the future if requested/required. I am sorry for my pessimism, but after 5 re-installs my patience grows a little thin.
