clone ubuntu 9.10 to a new hard drive and it should be bootable as before.


Hello all,

I want to install a mac on my intel machine. For that i need to have a clean hard disk. I have a ubuntu 9.10 installed on a 160 gb seagate. I want to create an image or clone it to another hardrive so that i can boot it the way i do it now.

Is it possible to copy an entire os and run it as it is on a new hard drive?

Thanks and regards.
Gunjan.

You are aware that ubuntu 9.10 is out of support?

I'd be getting a newer, supported version of ubuntu, or a different distro.
