OK a quick recap from my last post, where I realised that then next step was going to take some explaining … A week or so went by without incident and it was time to consider the final stage: moving Windows to a virtual machine and getting rid of the old Windows partition. Here are the main stages.
- Make a windows install CD from the install files on the windows partition (Thinkpads don’t have an install CD, they use an Install partition)
- Install vmware on Ubuntu and make a Windows Virtual Machine.
- Delete the old Windows and IBM Install partitions
- Re-arrange the remaining partitions to suit the new arrangement.
