I have used Acronis True Image for a while now to make one-for-one drive clones ad it's great. But now I want to clone 5 different drives onto one drive (5 partitions on new drive). Acronis doesn't play that way; Acronis wants to wipe out whatever is on the destination dive, literally CLONING the other.
I finally managed to make a bootable clone of my old and new systems (I moved from Ubuntu 10.04 to Xubuntu 12.04). It was important to me to be able to boot the clone with the original system drive still installed, so I had to modify the UUIDs, etc/fstab, and /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume, and then perform update-initramfs, grub-install and update-grub on the clone.
I have encountered an error while attempting to convert a formatted flash drive into a bootable medium containing Tails Linux 0.21. I have attempted to make the flash drive bootable by the following means:
I have a copy of the Slackware 64 bit dvd installation iso. I've burned this image to a dvd and used it to properly install the distro. I wanted to try also having this image available on a usb flash drive. I divided a 32 GB drive into two partitions: 1, about 22 GB for data; and 2, about 10 GB for messing around with installers (set as bootable).
I tried instaling Ubuntu onto my flash drive by booting onto a live CD of 9.10 and using the create a bootable USB disk option. Ubuntu was bootable from my drive, but I didn't like it. I reinstalled the U3 system and chose the format option. It went through, but the drive never renamed.
