Switching from partitions to volumes

I have a pair of 3600 that are running BIG-IP 10.2.0 Build 1707.0 Final. When I upgraded to v10, I reformatted the partitions so that I could fail-back to v9 if needed. Now that v10 has proven its stability I would like to move the BigIPs to volumes for easier future upgrades. How do I go about doing this? Do I back-up the configs and use the image to disk utility on each hard drive?

Short answer... Yes..

You got it in one. Sorry there's not really an easier way, but to reformat the HD means wiping everything and replacing it.

Ok, so I just run the following on both disks and restore my configs manually?
image2disk --instslot=HD1.1 --format=volumes BIGIP-version.iso
