Ubuntu P2v


First, boot your system with the Ubuntu 9.10 Server ISO image (the desktop version won't work). Select rescue option from boot menu. 6. I had to do an additional grub-install -recheck, followed by update-grub, inside the rescue shell, but other than that your instructions worked. It would be easier to make a wrapper of grub-install at the source which would return the version with "-v" argument.Regards Like Show 0 Likes (0) Actions Go to original post

All is working except making the swap. As consolation, the only similarity I found with other Linux flavors was on the file /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules, where the MAC addresses of the physical machine are hard-coded. It was just recently that I worked on several Ubuntu hosts.
