I installed a 160GB hard drive D: and installed Ubuntu on that drive using Windows installer (WUBI). I am running Vista on the C:drive (320 GB) and am using dual boot to access either Ubuntu or Vista when I boot up. I have recently purchased a Windows 8 PC (Grrr!) but under the circumstancs do not want or need the VISTA operating system on the other PC. What I would like to do is the following: 1. Transfer all my files to the Win 8 PC 2. Switch the 160 GB drive to be my C:drive and the 320 GB Drive to be my d:drive 3. install Ubuntu 12 on the 'new' c: drive and use the D: drive for files and programs
On the original install of Ubuntu, I partitioned the 160 GB drive for U9.04 but it is all tied to dual boot and was done through WUBI. I'm sure new versions of Ubuntu will require different partitioning setups anyway.If I could I would like to just clean everything out and start from scratch. I run free programs mostly, but anything I need like printers Web Cams, Router, etc. I have software for. As far as personal data I can save everything off to external drives and reload later as needed.
I don't know if I can just wipe both hard drives clean, then reset my BIOS to recognize the 'new' drive setup, then start installing Ubuntu. Sounds too simple!
Please let me know the proper approach.
