Can you tell us which version you are running, the old ones used GRUB and the lastest ones GRUB2 so the instrucations vary slightly and we need to get the right one. pleasenoname December 17, 2011 3:10:46 AM 9.04 is what is on there. I have bookmarks and some customization I'd rather not have to wipe. If I just get the drive with Ubuntu boot-able that will be good. Related resources Looking to secure raid 0 config, please help!
