I am liking Manjaro so much that I want to install it on another computer I own.
I would be dual booting with Windows 10 on that machine as well (I currently dual boot with Windows 10 and Manjaro - KDE).
Since I have spent quite a bit of time customizing my Manjaro installation, I would like to duplicate it on the new computer without manually making all of the same changes.
I searched the forum and found three threads that propose different solutions, but I’m not certain that two of them apply (the OP was asking about moving Manjaro to a different disk or partition on the same computer).
If it is easier, I could easily install Manjaro KDE on the other computer first (this way I won’t have to worry about Grub pointing to incorrect partitions as they will be different between the two computers).
Here are the three posts that I found:
So if anyone could kindly offer some advice on how to install Manjaro on my other computer while keeping my current configuration, I would greatly appreciate it.
I am assuming that I would first do a typical install of Manjaro KDE on computer B and then use your script, first on computer A to obtain all of the config files, etc. and then again on computer B to install all those same files - correct?
This way I don’t have to worry about messing up Grub.
A quick question for you, does this clone Grub as well?
My current computer has a few very small abandoned partitions (thanks to Windows) which my new computer will not have. I am worried that if I clone the current Grub config file, my new installation will simply not boot as it would be pointing the wrong or non-existent partition.
Edit: I don’t think that I can mark two different posts as Solutions, so I will mark this post as the Solution since it contains two viable solutions.
