I currently run Win11 beta on one of my desktop PC 's. It previously ran Win10 Pro. While it is not my primary work PC, I have several laptops for that purpose.
I'm seeking to upgrade my knowledge and skills, plus learn about the current generations of OS's and Platforms, such as Linux, open-source application, technology platforms and Operational software, such Ansible, Docker, Kubernetes and many more).,
So, I would like to be able to:
- Package up the existing Windows 11 installation,
- Install Zorin OS 16 Pro over the original Windows 11 installation, and finally
- Restore the recent packages back-up if the existing Windows 11 installation,
I have purchased Zorin OS 16 Pro this morning and will be ready to look start the installation process then.
I'm needing to improve my understanding of the identified platforms above, including multiple flavours of Linux . This being done for both employment and personal reasons.
I have a couple of Raspberry Pi's running a couple of different Linux distros (Ubuntu Server and Desktop), but I would also like to learn a Linux version such as Zorin OS 6 on x86/x64 chipset.
So, I am wanted to convert the existing Windows installation into a VM running under Zoriin OS. Any suggestions? Or I being too ambitious?
