112 <p>Assuming you have used <b>Clonezilla Live</b> to make a backup of your Windows XP system (partition <b>/dev/<font color="Red">hda1</font></b>), which you have saved as <font color="Green"><b>win_img</b></font>, 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>
113 <!--empty-line-->
114 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 (or alternatively, writing a script to execute the commands automatically), that can be uncomfortable or even difficult for many people. If you're interested, the old instructions are <a href="restore.html">here</a>.<br><br>
115 <!--empty-line-->
116 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 still supported but no longer needed. This page walks you through the creation of an automated restore DVD via TUI.<br><br>
117 <!--empty-line-->
118 Assuming you have saved your image file <font color="Green"><b>win_img</b></font> in partition <font color="Green"><b>hdb4</b></font>, you have to boot <b>Clonezilla Live</b>, using <b>Clonezilla-SysRescCD</b>.</p>
120 <div align="center"><table class="note" border="0" cellpadding="20"><tr><td valign="top"><img src="images/info.png"></td><td>

132 <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>
133 <!--empty line-->
134 <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>
135 <!--empty line-->
136 <p>The default parameters for booting <b>Clonezilla Live</b> on a 1024x768 screen, are the following:</p>
137 <!--empty line-->
138 <p class="newcode">append initrd=/live/initrd1.img boot=live union=aufs<br>
139 &nbsp;&nbsp;ocs_live_run="ocs-live-general" ocs_live_extra_param=""<br>

142 <!--empty line-->
143 <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>
144 <!--empty line-->

219 <p><img src="images/restore-15.png"><br>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.

222 <!--empty line-->
223 <p><a name="dl-dvd"></a><img src="images/cust-menu-01.png"><br>Due to limitations of <b>mkisofs</b>, the script can't create a ISO file which is over 4,5 gigabytes in size. It causes problems if the size of your image is over 4,4 gigabytes. <b>Clonezilla-SysRescCD</b> contains a workaround that creates a ISO file that contains no image, so you can add the image manually later. This dialog asks if you want to do so. Note that if you see this dialog, you most likely need a dual layer DVD+R or Blu-ray disc to burn the image. <b>Growisofs</b> doesn't support multisession burning on dual layer DVD-R discs, so such disc can't be used either.</p>

239 <p><img src="images/cust-menu-05.png"><br>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>

243 <p><img src="images/cust-menu-06.png"><br>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>

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>

255 <p><img src="images/cust-menu-09.png"><br>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.

261 <br>
262 <img src="images/cust-menu-10.png">
263 <br>
264 If you have <a href="#dl-dvd">above</a> enabled the workaround to create a ISO file without any image, you get the info screen, which explains the actions to be taken in order to burn the ISO file and add the iamge file to the DVD. A script file is also saved as <b>/tmp/burnISO</b>.<br>
265 <br>
266 <img src="images/restore-18.png"><br>
267 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.
