Your Boot Info Script output shows just a single ~8GB disk on your computer. This looks suspiciously like a live disk, so my suspicion is that the disk you used lacks drivers for your disk controller -- or perhaps there's a bug in the Boot Info Script that's preventing it from showing your hard disk.
I have a win7 laptop that I'd like to create an image of the hard disk to be able to restore later, or restore to an identical hard disk as part of a charity project I'm involved with that includes about 50 other identical laptops.
I'm aware I can use dd to just dump the disk image to a file then restore using dd back to the slave disk.
I have an old, but still kicking laptop - thinkpad t61. I've ordered a new SSD to make my old trusty a little bit faster. I have Fedora installed there for some years now and I really don't want to make a fresh install now. So I was thinking can I use palimpsest eg Disks to migrate my existing installation to SSD.
I'm trying to install Linux Mint 13 with Cinnamon via the 64 bit DVD image from within Windows. I've tried both installing it to C: which is my Windows system disk, but also to D: which is another physical disk entirely. The same thing happens on both disks.
The Windows part of the installation completes and it tells me to reboot.
