I have a disk with below partition layout.
1.Partition 1 (Primary) – Boot partition to contain the GRUB boot loader. (sda1 on Oracle Linux)
2.Partition 2 (Primary) – Oracle Linux system partition. (sda2 on Oracle Linux)
3.Partition 3 (Primary) – Windows system and boot partition. (C: drive on Windows)
4.Partition 4 (Extended) –
a.Partition 5 (Logical) – Data partition for the Oracle Linux system (sda5 on Oracle Linux)
b.Partition 6 (Logical) - Data partition for the Windows system (D: drive on Windows)
Which option should I use to clone disk to image? And Which option should I use to restore image to disk?
"savedisk" and "restoredisk" option.
Please check this step by step doc:
//NOTE// Backup important data before you use Clonezilla. Just in case.
Will that savedisk and restoredisk handle all the dual boot mechanism?
I have a similar system with Windows 8.1 and Ubuntu 14.04 all working fine and dandy at the moment(after lots of sweat and tears), so here are my questions:
- If I use savedisk making the image into an external USB HDD, and then replace the hard drive in my machine with a new disk and restoring from the USB HDD, will it boot just as it is now, both windows or Linux?
- And if I restore in the same internal hard drive, will it clean it all and restore the original setup as when I took the backup? (just in case the system gets messed up, I want to revert to that safe state)
I have read some posts where after restoring the system wont boot..
Thanks in advance,
