104     <p>Assuming you have used <b>Clonezilla Live</b> to make a backup of your Windows XP system (partition <b>/dev/<font color="Red">sda1</font></b>), you will probably be wondering what to do with it now. Well, one option would be to keep it to the disk you used to save it in, store the disk, and use it whenever you need it. Another option would be to create a DVD you can use to restore this image.<br><br>
105     <!--empty-line-->
106     Before, up to <b>Clonezilla-SysRescCD 2.6.0</b>, the process to create an automated restore DVD required entering command line prompt and writing some commands, that can be uncomfortable or even difficult for many people.<br><br>
107     <!--empty-line-->
108     Later, a TUI option to create an automated recovery disc was added to <b>Clonezilla Live</b>, and <b>ocs-iso</b> script included in <b>Clonezilla-SysRescCD 3.1.0</b> and newer has a TUI too. Old command-line options are no longer supported. This page walks you through the creation of an automated restore DVD via TUI.<br><br>
109     <!--empty-line-->
110     You have to boot <b>Clonezilla Live</b>, using <b>Clonezilla-SysRescCD</b>.</p>

123    
124     <p>If you're fine with US keymap and English language (available languages are English, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese and Chinese [both simplified and traditional]) or don't mind editing the boot parameters, just select <b>Clonezilla Live</b> at the starting screen and press ENTER. When the system comes up, it will load the program that will preform the backup. After that continue from <a href="#rui-4">this step</a>.</p>
125     <!--empty line-->
126     <p>If you need to change these settings, select one of the available <b>Clonezilla Live</b> menu entries, and press <font color="Green"><b>TAB</b></font>. The current boot parameters will be displayed.</p>
127     <!--empty line-->
128     <p>The default parameters for booting <b>Clonezilla Live</b> on a 1024x768 screen, are the following:</p>

134     <!--empty line-->
135     <p>By deleting the words in red, you instruct <b>Clonezilla Live</b> to ask you the values of these parameters. When the appropriate changes have been done (as shown bellow), just press <font color="Green"><b>ENTER</b></font> to boot.</p>

222 sng 112 This screen allows me to select the keymap that the recovery disc uses. Unfortunately, changing the keymap requires knowing where the keymap file resides in Debian GNU/Linux. Because I don't know it, I just press ENTER to accept US keymap.</p>

227 sng 112 I select "<font color="Red"><b>iso</b></font>" to create a CD/DVD disk image which I can burn to a recordable CD/DVD disc. The good thing about recordable discs is that overwriting the backup by accident is impossible. The "<font color="Red"><b>zip</b></font>" option creates a ZIP file which can be used to create a bootable pendrive or external hard drive.</p>
228     <!--empty line-->

234    
235     <p><img src="images/restore-16a.png"><br>
236     You will see this screen if the image file you're about to create is larger than a single layer DVD. The screen warns that <b>mkisofs</b> or <b>genisoimage</b> (the programs which actually create the image) might be unable to process a disk image that big.

241 sng 112 Now I am asked if I want to customize the boot menu of the disc. I answer "<font color="Red"><b>Yes</b></font>". If you don't want to customize the menu, continue from <a href="#rui-22">this step</a>.</p>

255 sng 49 <p><img src="images/cust-menu-05.png"><br>
256 sng 112 I press ENTER to accept the default delay of 30 seconds. It means that when a computer is booted from the restore disc, it waits 30 seconds before choosing the default option automatically. You may want to reduce this delay if, for example, your keyboard doesn't work in boot menu and you must wait until the delay ends.</p>

261 sng 112 In this screen I can select the default option of the menu. Selecting one of the options that restore the image makes using the disc even easier, but also raises the risk that the image is restored accidentally. Another reason to select such option may be that your keyboard doesn't work in boot menu, preventing you from choosing any non-default option. I select the first option that restores the image using pixel dimensions of 1024*768.</p>

266 sng 112 This screen allows me to select the background picture of the menu. Note that the picture must be in the same partition that contains the disk image, if you don't mind entering command line and mounting the right partition manually. I choose picture <b><font color="Green">mysplash.png</font></b> in the root of the partition. Because the partition has been mounted in <b>/home/partimag</b>, the full path of the picture is <b>/home/partimag/<font color="Green">mysplash.png</font></b>.</p>

271 sng 112 In this screen I can select the volume label of the disc. Volume label is the name of the disc you may see in various situations, for example in the notification you see when you insert the disc into your DVD writer. I type "Backup_52-2009_hdb".</p>

276 sng 112 This is where I choose the publisher ID of the ISO file and the disc. Publisher ID means the person or company who created the disc. However, at least in GNU/Linux reading the publisher ID is, strictly speaking, a challenge. <a href="http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/getting-volume-information-from-cds-iso-images/" target="_blank">Here</a> are instructions to read the publisher ID of a ISO file. I didn't find any working instructions to read the ID from the disc.</p>

281 sng 112 After that, creation of the disk image begins. Note that no confirmation is asked it the disk image is small enough to fit to a CD.

285     When the disk image is successfully created, I must reboot in order to burn the disc because my DVD burner is still in use. <b>Clonezilla Live</b> can be loaded into computer memory during boot in order to be able to burn disc(s) within it. However, due to a known bug, the disk image can't be created if <b>Clonezilla Live</b> has been loaded into memory. (<a href="http://free.nchc.org.tw/clonezilla-live/stable/Known-issues-Clonezilla-live.txt" target="_blank">source</a>) Thus, I press <font color="Red"><b>1</b></font> and ENTER to reboot to another operating system and burn the image using graphical burning program. Follow <a href="restore-burn.html">this link</a> for instructions. If you've created a ZIP file, follow <a href="restore-burn.html#zip">this one</a> instead.</p>
