This may be a re-discovery/re-emergence of bug #101 at https://sourceforge.net/p/clonezilla/bugs/101/?page=1
Using clonezilla-live-2.0.1-15-i686-pae.iso to saveparts and then restoreparts a disk to a new BLANK disk failed, requiring manual intervention to create a dummy partition table.
Steps to reproduce (similar to #101) :-
Backed up original drive (sda1, sda2) successfully with saveparts, no issue here.
Inserted new empty drive to system, seen as sda
Began to set up for an NFS restore.

In "Expert" mode
Picked directory to restore FROM on NFS server.
Was shown a list of drives in my RAID array (sdb, sdc, sdd, sde ...) with no entry for sda (the actual target drive wanted)
Aborted at this point!
Over on the 2nd console :-
sudo su -
mkpart primary (start1) (end1) with details taken from /home/partimag/sda-pt.sf
mkpart primary (start2) (end2) and again ...
(I believe the mkparts may have been unnecessary, I just needed to get a partition table on there at all, even an empty one?)
Retrying the restore I'm now shown sda1, sda2 as potential restore targets, as well as sdb, sdc ...
At the "-k" option section, I picked "Use partition table from image" to clear up any error I made above in manually creating.
Restore then proceeded correctly, restoring partition table correctly too. (Volume ID went from 0x00000000 before to 0xANOTHERVALUE after)
