How to migrate - in pictures

Update: this post is now out of date. Please refer to this instead: How to migrate updated for release 12.04


  1. omg! error! sudo bash /dev/sda5 /dev/sda6
    WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/sda'! The util fdisk doesn't support GPT. Use GNU Parted.
    I tried to do this from the livecd but I do not know which folder to copy from c: / ubuntu to the partition created.

  2. Unfortunately wubi-move doesn't support GPT disks at this time. You can try the manual migration instructions from here. If you do, please let me know how it goes. Thanks

  3. I'm working on an update that will support GPT as well as MBR. By removing all fdisk calls from current script, it will work on GPT (the fdisk calls are just for extra validation).

  4. The following proposed release fixes the issue for GPT disks and also allows migration to separate target partitions for /boot, /usr and /home.
