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.
