121
122 <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>
123
124 <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 script is obsolete, and has been removed.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>
125
126 <ul>
127 <li>Relocation of a disk image (restoring a whole disk)</li>
128 <li>Relocation of a partition image (restoring a partition)</li>
129 </ul>
130
131 <p><b>Clonezilla Live</b> does not support:</p>
132 <ul>
133 <li>Relocation of a single partition contained into a disk image.<br>
134 <br>
135 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>
136 <br>
137 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.
138 </li>
139 </ul>
140
141 <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>
142
143 <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>

145 <p>The script will be used to print info about existing image files.</p>

164
165 <p>The script will be used to convert an existing <b>disk</b> image file to a new <b>partition</b> image file.</p>
166
167 <p><b>imgconvert</b> can create two type of images:</p>
168
169 <ol>
170 <li><b>Temporary image</b><br>
171 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>.
172 </li>
173 <li><b>Permanent image</b><br>
174 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>

225 <p><b>sys-bck</b> is a backup of my old system, which had three partitions.

354
355 <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>
356
357 <p>There are two more steps that you may have to take:</p>
358
359 <ul>
360 <li>Fix <b>/etc/fstab</b></li>
361 <li>Reinstall <b>GRUB</b>.<br>
362 I will assume GRUB is your boot manager, as it is the usual case nowadays.</li>
363 </ul>
364
365 <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>
366
367 <p>This is what we have:</p>
368
369 <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>
370 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>
371 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>
372
373
374 <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>
375
376 <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>
377
378 <p class="newcode">mkdir /new-root<br>
379 mount /dev/hda1 /new-root<br>
380 vi /new-root/etc/fstab</p>
381
382 <p>The contents of <b>/etc/fstab</b> could be something like</p>
383
384 <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>
385 <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>
386 <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>
387
388 <p>and we have to change ti to</p>
389
390 <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>
391 <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>
392 <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>
393
394 <p>Finally, we unmount the partition, and we are ready to reboot</p>
395
396 <p class="newcode">umount /new-root<br>
397 reboot</p>

402
403 <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>
