It will be the primary drive with Mint13 , the second drive in the dvd bay will hold Windows XP and large data.
It was not easy but finally I was able to create with gdisk two GPT partitions , a small boot partition of 2 mb, and a ext4 partition, on the SSD drive and format it with
sudo mke2fs -t ext4 -O ^has_journal /dev/sdb2
Now I would like to trasfer my actual Mint13 install to the SSD drive but I have 2 problems:
- I'm unable to copy the files of Mint13 to the ext4 partition of the SSD drive , drag and drop copy with via sudo nautilus gave errors, DD command tried but the target partition is smaller than origin so it fails.
- I do not know how to create a correct boot on the SSD drive, perhaps via grub ?
I would prefer to simply transfer my actual Mint13 rather than a fresh install if possible...
