I have successfully cloned the disk with beginner mode. I first used CloneZilla in beginner mode to copy the entire disk to the new done, then used expert mode (to toggle rescue mode) on the single partition that contained bad sectors. Everything booted up nicely, with nothing whatsoever to be done. Cheers,
No, the device-device mode failed regardless of the parameters I set. I can try with beginner mode, but I wanted to enable the rescue mode, as there are some bad blocks on my old drive. Will report back when I've tried beginner mode.
I have taken those from my old hard drive (I didn't have time to figure out how to fix the bootloader and stuff on the new one). Here's sdb.parted.compact: valandil ~ $ cat sdb.parted.compact Model: ATA ST1000LM024 HN-M (scsi) Disk /dev/sdb: 1000GB Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/4096B Partition Table: gpt Disk Flags: Number Start End Size File system Name Flags 1 1049kB 1050MB 1049MB ntfs Basic data partition hidden, diag 2 1050MB 1322MB 273MB fat32 EFI system partition boot, esp 3 1322MB 2371MB...
Hmm, you mean I should try to image the drive and show you the sda-pt.sf and sda-pt.parted.compact files contained in the image directory? As of right now I don't have an image of the drive, I used ddescue to directly copy the data of my drive onto the new one.
Ok, but how I do I do that?
I'm still not sure what the problem was, but ddrescue was able to copy my data to the new drive without any issue. I wll now use gparted to resize the partitions so as to use the entire drive. I imagine there was an issue with rescaling the GPT partitions, although I remember trying something that supposedly disabled parition resizing. Not sure now. I'm still interested in knowing what went wrong here, if you have any information to give me. Cheers,
I have also tried using device-image mode, but that also fails. The log basically says the same thing as last time, with the added warning that the Last LBA specified by script is out of range. What's the problem here exactly? The original drive is a 1TB HDD, and I'm trying to copy to a 2 TB drive. Is the arithmetic in CloneZilla wrong somewhere? Should I just create the partition table on my new drive manually and restore partition by partition? (Sorry the lousy pictures, it's the best I can do...
