migrate vmware vm (linux) to digital ocean using initramfs+early-ssh

I need help to transfer a vm (old 32bit Ubuntu) to Digital Ocean

This can be done by installing early-ssh and booting into initramfs and then transfering with

"dd" command "dd if=/dev/sda/ .. | ssh root@IP 'dd of=/dev/vda1 bs=65536"

The vm image will be provided.

The problem is fixing boot configuration after droplet reboot (it will need some steps in grub boot to correct partition then mounting root checking kernel etc)

Plz bid only if you know Linux well enough to fix boot problems (or have enough time for test)

VM image will be provided (google drive 15Gb in zip 70Gb after unpacking, so you need a good Internet speed)

You will need to test first on YOUR Digital Ocean droplet! (will be 80Gb disk one if using "dd"; can be less if using ; data size is only 15Gb).

More Details in chat.

Plz bid only if you know Linux well enough!!!
