I've tried both the CD images and bootable USB key versions of Clonezilla but all give me the same
error: the characters are unreadable, like the screen size is wrong and the text is being chopped and
interspersed with stuff. I'm trying to use if on a Lenova B570 i3 with built in Intel 3000 graphic
adapter using shared system memory for graphics. I've got 32 bit Ubuntu 12.04 installed, W7 64 bit
Premium, Grub boot (which all work fine). I've tried all 3 version of the Clonezilla boot, Amd64, i386. All give the same result. The first screen is blank, after a 30 sec wait goes to a screen
that's magenta with scrambled characters at the bottom which change when I press the up or down
arrow buttons. I tried booting the same media from Virtual Box and I get the expected, legible
screens. Any suggestions?
By the way: the BIOS settings don't allow doing anything with the graphics adapter or it's storage.
The drbl-live does continue to the XWindows screen, which seems to
work but is still scrambled so unusable. The graphics adapter is
an Intel HD 3000 mobile.
I;ve now tried the newest test releases
drbl-live-xfce-2.2.3-4-amd64; same behaviour.
I tried the Debian Live + nonfree for USB boot image (copied via dd);
it boots fine, all good and legible, but it's an ISO hybrid, not FAT32 image.
How about Clonezilla live
2.2.3-20 WORKS fine!
20140617-utopic fails the same way all the others do, with illegible (white text on a black background) text, though there seems to be more of it and it doesn't go to a magenta screen with illegible text too.
Again, they both work under VirtualBox (though I use a physical disk trick I found on the net to enable booting from a USB key; requires running as Admin).
Any other information I can provide to you?
Good, 2.2.3-20 works there.
You can stick with that one. Actually this one is really kernel/hardware support issue, and we use the Linux kernel from upstream, i.e. Debian or Ubuntu.
Therefore if you would like to report the issue, you can report to Ubuntu bug report system:
