I have a very fine running system with all updates installed and heavily customised to taste
, Which I want to backup and export it in such a way that I shall be able to restore it in VirtualBox whenver I want to .
Please guide me through the process if this is possible
My idea would be to try using Clonezilla.
In the past, I used it only for a clone from disk to disk, but reading the documentation I'm sure I read something on using clonezilla from hardware to virtual machine (I remember I found it interesting but it was not my usecase).
A quick search on the Internet "clonezilla from hardware to virtual machine" shows a lot of tutorials.
I know that Clonezilla can be tricky when you clone to a different HW, but moving to a VM could be probably less so.
Anyway it is a matter of reading (maybe there are specific parameters) and trying: in this case you go to a VM, so there isn't much to loose, just the time to try again with some changes
This request is completely out of scope for this forum. Typing the request into a search engine often leads to useful results too,
If you are talking about themes, just copy .config folder in home to vm(using shared folders)
You might have to install relevant themes though.
Someone close this thread , i cant close it without marking as solved ,
though everyone suggestion was helpful but not quite what i wanted ,
i will pursue this info in more relevant forum like that of virtualbox
