Since Windows 7 EoS is near, I want to change my Workstation’s OS from Windows 7 to Debian.
My problem is that my Workstation is a laptop and changing the HDD is kinda hard. I don’t want to format, clean install Debian and start building it again.
I’d like to clean install on a VM, make all the modifications I need, and then mirror the VM as normal OS on my drive. Now I know that installing Debain on VM will install virtual drivers and anything else that’s necessary so the VM can run properly.
Since mirroring all of this to the HDD won’t work, how can I fully install the necessary drivers and anything else needed for the OS to run perfectly on my hardware, so as soon as I mirror it will run with no problem? Is this possible or I should clean install on a second SSD and then swap the drives?
