Where can I find a detailed explanation of the "disk image" function found in ubuntu 12.04 system tools > disks > create disk image found by clicking the gear symbol at the top right?
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.
We have installed and customized a F18 system, and it's working great... Now I'd like to take a disk image of it (we use Clonezilla) and then use that image to blow onto other disks we'll use in other systems.
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.
are recovery disks (once created) the same as creating a disk image, i upgraded from vista to win 7, and had to restore my system. I had to first install the vista recovery disks and once all the updates were done I was finaly able to upgrade once again to win 7. there has to be an easier way. thanks for any help
I have a destroyed partition table on a disk. To not destroy more while trying to repair I like to test recovery first on a full disc image created with dd. Especially I have to create a new logical partition on the file image and try to mount the LUKS encrypted LVM inside. I know that I could use normal tools like mount, fsck etc.
Under windows system I'm used to create an image of HD with driveImageXML.
What's the best approach to have an Image of the hard-drive containing the OS, with Ubuntu Server?
I'd like to have a snapshot of the current configuration so If ever happens that the primary disk will fail I could simply restore this image on a new HD, unplug the broken one, plug the newly created.
