Personally, I would use something like 'gparted' from a live disk/USB to copy a partition from one piece of hardware to another. Create the partition on your hard drive first, then copy it over.


Once the partition is copied over, (1) do an 'update-grub' in one of your other OS's. (2) Make sure your /etc/fstab is correct on your bodhi partition so that bodhi isn't looking for a partition to mount to your /home/ directory. Hint, if you can mount your newly copied partition and edit that file, you're probably on the right track. (3)  Boot and see if bodhi shows up in grub, I'm pretty sure it should. (4) Copy your files over from 'home' on your USB.


!!! I am Mr. Be Careful, so I'm going to say it ... Be careful. If at all possible, create a backup of your hard drive first just for safety sake. It's MUCH quicker to create and test out a backup first than to mess up your entire drive and have to rebuild everything from scratch. !!!


Hope I understood you right and that what I wrote makes some sense.

I'm pretty sure both were the answer. It seems like "the chicken or the egg" question, but it really isn't.


If I remember correctly, Yumi doesn't create a UEFI bootable sector on your USB, so you never even had the chance to boot in UEFI with Yumi. (in this case 'dd' did the trick)

Therefore 'dd' created the option to boot to UEFI sector of the USB and enable the UEFI variables in the booted OS when you chose to boot 'UEFI (your usb manufacturer)'.

And as Charles stated earlier ...   :)  without UEFI variables in the OS, the installer (ubiquity) thought that it was a Legacy install, so that's the approach it took while creating partitions and installing.


Glad to hear you got it sorted. :)  Welcome to Bodhi!

Sounds good. Let us know how it goes.

What OS's do you have on your other partitions?

Which OS do you plan on having as your primary?


You may be able to get away with simply copying over your partition from your USB to a partition on your HD then doing a 'sudo update-grub' if you are running Ubuntu/Linux on one of your other partitions.


However, if you want to make the Bodhi OS your primary, after you copy over your partition to your HD, you will have to chroot into Bodhi and do a 'sudo grub-install' & 'sudo update-grub'.

Regarding the chroot method, I would follow this how-to -->  http://howtoubuntu.o...-ubuntu-live-cd


You probably already know this but here it is anyway...

!!!   Be extra careful not to over-write or delete your partitions or hard drive while copying over your partitions. If you have no worries at all about copying over a partition, you're either an expert who knows exactly what he/she is doing, or a total beginner who has no clue what he/she is doing.  Please be careful, this is just a friendly warning.  I won't begin to cover here about how to copy over a partition, you'll have to find a procedure on google somewhere that you trust.  !!!
