Changing the filesystem layout or the underlaying technology (LVM,
softraid, ...) is not possible during migration, you would need to
create a full backup and restore. And even then this will most likely
not work, since a lot of tools configure itself during installation
depending on the setup, you need to find all of them and reconfigure
So a fresh installation is really much faster.
