I'm currently in the process of migrating a system that runs a minimal install of ubuntu 10.04 from the system it was on to a VM. The approach i'm taking is to run remastersys to create a bootable iso, running it on VMware player and then using it to install to a virtual hard disk.
I've gotten the iso made, and it boots, but selecting the install option throws me into a command line shell gives me an error reading
(gksudo:3160): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display - presumably cause ubiquity is a GUI application which relies on GTK, which is backed up by what the forums for the software says
How would/could i transfer the install onto a hard disk? I obviously cannot use traditional offline tools, but could i use something like partimage to image the disk?
