I had a problem where the cloned disk booted into Windows 7 ok, but failed with file/kernel not found errors for Ubuntu
When I had a closer look at the option before booting (by choosing e at the at the menu section) I realised that the original system boots kernel 188.8.131.52, while the cloned system boot 184.108.40.206!!!! That kernel doesn't exists anymore on my system.
How is this possible? After trawling the net for two days I found a note saying that grub.cfg is the only file that gets copied during the cloning. How does Clonezilla know where it is; the note said that clonezilla searches all partitions for a grub.cfg file (no indication what happens when you have more than one for some reason).
So I went back and booted into my working system and found that I had 2 grub.cfg files
One in /boot/grub (the one the working system uses)
One on /boot/boot/grub (the dud one)
Ignoring the reason as to why there is a /boot/boot/grub directory, I have now removed that directory so there is only on grub.cfg file.
Cloning the system works as I'm now posting this bug report from the cloned system
I'm using Ubuntu 10.10, Windows 7 and the alternative CloneZilla LiveCD, 20110113-Maverick.
I will clone this disk again and will let you know the outcome, but am pretty sure it will work.
