122
123 <p>In this page I will demonstrate the creation of an image file by getting a backup of a virtual disk (<b>/dev/<font color="Red">sdb</font></b>). The image file will be saved in a partition in another virtual disk (<b>/dev/<font color="Red">sda1</font></b>).<br></p>
124
125 <p><!--empty line-->
126 The first thing you do when you want to get a backup of a disk/partition, is make sure both the souce (to be backed up) and target (to hold the image file) partitions are in excellent condition (error free). This is the logical thing to do, cause I wouldn't want to backup a corrupt partition, or end up with a corrupt image file.<br>
127 <br>
128 <!--empty line-->
129 There is one more step I would want to take: I should check that my BIOS boot settings are correct, in order to boot from my CD/DVD drive.<br>
130 <br>
131 Having done all of the above, I am ready to boot from <b>Clonezilla-SysRescCD</b>.<br>
132 <br>

146 <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="#bck-4">this step</a>.</p>
147
148 <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>
149
150 <p>The default parameters for booting <b>Clonezilla Live</b> on a 1024x768 screen, are the following:</p>
151
152 <p class="newcode">append initrd=/live/initrd.img boot=live config nomodeset nolocales noprompt<br>
153 &nbsp;&nbsp;noswap edd=on ocs_live_run="ocs-live-general" ocs_live_extra_param=""<br>

155 &nbsp;&nbsp;ocs_lang="<font color="Red">en_US.UTF-8"</font> ocs_live_keymap="<font color="Red">NONE</font>" vga=791</p>
156
157 <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>
158
159 <p class="newcode">append initrd=/live/initrd.img boot=live config nomodeset nolocales noprompt<br>
