Transfer linux installation from another hard drive?
I have bought VMware and would like to somehow transfer my Linux installation from another hard drive to my primary Windows XP drive. Can someone point me in the right direction?
The reason why I am doing this is that I have gone through 10 reinstalls and countless reboots in efforts to install the damn ATI fglrx display drivers onto my Ubuntu Feisty Fawn 7.04 distro. I have followed numerous guides and all have left me with either mesa drivers or have raped my x.org file. There is a single hope for me. Somehow the drivers managed to install on my test hard drive and I want to transfer that partition onto my primary drive and run it via VMware.
I am willing to try installing the fglrx drivers if someone is able to write out working instructions. I will test and confirm them.
NOTE: I cannot use the open source drivers. They do not support the r500 chipsets; x1950pro.
ATI's driver support is embarrassing and leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
