First of all I used to have Ubuntu in Windows 7. So that's all about my first pc. I run simulations using open foam and other programs such as parafoam. So today I upgrade my old pc. In my newer system I also have Windows 7 but now I 've got another storage device. I want to ask if there is a way to connect my old hdd and paste all files and system programs to my new virtual machine. Or if I can make a new virtual machine around my old pc. So the specs are the following. First pc: i5 650 - p7p55d motherboard - 300gb he'd ( where I used to have Windows and Ubuntu) New pc: i7 - 16gb ram - ga x99 motherboard - 120gb ssd as well as the old hdd also connected.
On my previous pc I used to to host Ubuntu in Windows using virtualbox. Now on my new pc I have an ssd to boot Windows I 've got the old hdd from my first pc but also another ssd where I want to run Ubuntu again. Canofcolliders thank you for the answer it worked that way. But I have my new virtualbox in my ads and I boot Ubuntu from my hdd where all my files are. I want to migrate all files to my ssd where my new virtual machine has installed and also use the entire drive for my work. I say that because on my hdd where I used to run I had only 50Gb of free space, so even now I get messages about disk space that is full. To be clear once again I want to transfer files from my hdd to my new ssd at a new pc with whole different specs than the older one. And boot Ubuntu with all my files (openfoam, parafoam, etc) from the ssd.
