104
105 <p>In the past restoring to a different location was not supported by <b>Clonezilla Live</b> at all. Because of that, a script called <b>reloc-img</b> was added to <b>Clonezilla-SysRescCD</b>, which would help the user perform this task.</p>
106
107 <p>Recent versions of <b>Clonezilla Live</b> partly support restoring to a different location, so the <b>reloc-img</b> script is obsolete, and has been removed. <b>Clonezilla Live</b> now supports:</p>
108
109 <ul>
110 <li>Relocation of a disk image (restoring a whole disk)</li>
111 <li>Relocation of a partition image (restoring a partition)</li>
112 </ul>
113
114 <p><b>Clonezilla Live</b> does not support:</p>
115 <ul>
116 <li>Relocation of a single partition contained into a disk image.<br>
117 <br>
118 Imagine you have a disk backup image named <b>hda-2009-02-02</b>. The image contains three partitions, <span style="color: Red; font-weight: bold;">hda1</span> (operating system), <span style="color: Red; font-weight: bold;">hda2</span> (user data) and <span style="color: Red; font-weight: bold;">hda3</span> (other data).<br>
119 <br>
120 You want to restore your <b>other data</b> partition (<span style="color: Red; font-weight: bold;">hda3</span>), to a different system (partition <span style="color: Green; font-weight: bold;">sdb2</span>) but there is no way to restore (extract) a single partition from a disk image - you can only restore the whole disk.
121 </li>
122 </ul>
123
124 <p>In order to address this situation, two new scripts have been written for <b>Clonezilla-SysRescCD</b>: <b>imginfo</b> and <b>imgconvert</b>
125
126 <H2><a name="imginfo-script"></a>Script imginfo <span class="hideprint">[<a href="#reloc-img-top" title="go to top of the page">^</a>]</span></H2>
127
128 <p>The script will be used to print info about existing image files.</p>

147
148 <p>The script will be used to convert an existing <b>disk</b> image file to a new <b>partition</b> image file.</p>
149
150 <p><b>imgconvert</b> can create two type of images:</p>
151
152 <ol>
153 <li><b>Temporary image</b><br>
154 This type of image is created by linking the data files of the existing disk image to the new partition image. This means that the original image <b>must</b> be present for the new image to be used. This is the default image type created by <b>imgconvert</b>.
155 </li>
156 <li><b>Permanent image</b><br>
157 This type of image is created by copying the data files from the existing disk image to the new partition image. This means that the original image is not needed in order to use the new one. Permenant image files are created using the command line parameter <b>-p</b>.</li>

184 <p>After booting into <b>Clonezilla Live</b>, I select<br>

190 At this point I will mount my images partition (in this example <span style="color: Green; font-weight: bold">/dev/sdc4</span>), and use script <b>imginfo</b> to get info about my image files.</p>

205
206 <p>As you can see there are two disk images under /home/partimag: <b>usb250-img</b> and <b>sys-bck</b>. </p>
207
208 <p><b>sys-bck</b> is a backup of my old system, which had three partitions.

209 <br>
210 The way to proceed is:

212

214 <li>Create a new partition image (containing <span style="color: Green; font-weight: bold">hda3</span>'s data) based on the existing disk image file, by executing the command:

337
338 <p>A Linux system that has been restored to a new disk/partition, is usually not ready to be booted right after the restoration procedure is finished.</p>
339
340 <p>There are two more steps that you may have to take:</p>
341
342 <ul>
343 <li>Fix <b>/etc/fstab</b></li>
344 <li>Reinstall <b>GRUB</b>.<br>
345 I will assume GRUB is your boot manager, as it is the usual case nowadays.</li>
346 </ul>
347
348 <p>For this example I will assume that you have restored a Linux system (that used to be in <font color="Red"><b>sdb</b></font>), to a new disk (<font color="Green"><b>hda</b></font>), and that it contains three partitions, <b>/</b> (the root partition), <b>/home</b> (user's partition) and a <b>swap</b> partition. You must be really careful here, as the name of the new disk depends on the system to be booted. If it uses one of the newest Linux kernels (using the libata disk driver), ALL your disks will be recognised as SCSI. More info: "<a href="annex-a-devices.html#annex-a-scsi-ata">Identifying devices in Linux</a>" section "<a href="annex-a-devices.html#annex-a-scsi-ata">SCSI disks when there are none!!!</a>".</p>
349
350 <p>This is what we have:</p>
351
352 <p class="newcode">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;root partition&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;home partition&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;swap partition<br>
353 Old system&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<font color="Red">/dev/sdb1</font>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<font color="Red">/dev/sdb2</font>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<font color="Red">/dev/sdb3</font><br>
354 New system&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<font color="Green">/dev/hda1</font>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<font color="Green">/dev/hda2</font>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<font color="Green">/dev/hda3</font></p>
355
356
357 <H3><a name="reloc-img-boot-fstab"></a>Fixing /etc/fstab <span class="hideprint">[<a href="#reloc-img-top" title="go to top of the page">^</a>]</span></H3>
358
359 <p>Since we are still in <b>Clonezilla Live</b>, right after the restore procedure has finished, we will use it to mount our restored root partition, and edit its <b>/etc/fstab</b>. We issue the commands:</p>
360
361 <p class="newcode">mkdir /new-root<br>
362 mount /dev/hda1 /new-root<br>
363 vi /new-root/etc/fstab</p>
364
365 <p>The contents of <b>/etc/fstab</b> could be something like</p>
366
367 <p class="newcode"><font color="Red">/dev/sdb1</font>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;/&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;reiserfs&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;acl,user_xattr&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;1&nbsp;1<br>
368 <font color="Red">/dev/sdb2</font>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;/home&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;reiserfs&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;defaults&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;1&nbsp;2<br>
369 <font color="Red">/dev/sdb3</font>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;swap&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;swap&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;defaults&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;0&nbsp;0</p>
370
371 <p>and we have to change ti to</p>
372
373 <p class="newcode"><font color="Green">/dev/hda1</font>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;/&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;reiserfs&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;acl,user_xattr&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;1&nbsp;1<br>
374 <font color="Green">/dev/hda2</font>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;/home&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;reiserfs&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;defaults&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;1&nbsp;2<br>
375 <font color="Green">/dev/hda3</font>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;swap&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;swap&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;defaults&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;0&nbsp;0</p>
376
377 <p>Finally, we unmount the partition, and we are ready to reboot</p>
378
379 <p class="newcode">umount /new-root<br>
380 reboot</p>

382 <H3><a name="reloc-img-boot-grub"></a>Reinstalling GRUB <span class="hideprint">[<a href="#reloc-img-top" title="go to top of the page">^</a>]</span></H3>
383
384 <p>When <b>Clonezilla-SysRescCD</b> menu appears, we select <i><b>Tools &gt; Super Grub Disk</b></i></p>
385
386 <p>Then we select <i><b>Super Grub Disk &gt; Super Grub Disk (WITH HELP) &gt; English Super Grub Disk &gt; Gnu/Linux &gt; Fix Boot of Gnu/Linux (GRUB)</b></i>. From this entry we will be able to reinstall GRUB to our hard disk.</p>
