How to clone my OS + it's root as an image (without size limitation) and then for example writing it on a dual layered DVD? I used Remastersys but it issues the size of the output image and then aborts.

I'm trying to make an unlimited image with capability of re-installation using normal boot.

I tried Clonezilla a little bit, but I'm not sure it really helps. The problem is that I want unlimited size and I think (iso) is defined to not exceed 4.7GB.

I really am confused and desperate. If you know a solution please share.

I think Clonezilla es the way to go. I've never used to clone a whole OS but it should do the job. – Ángel Araya Aug 27 '12 at 15:03

Try REMASTERSYS. It's help me a lot with backup the whole system including your home folder data (Music, Pictures, etc). It's also creating LiveCD/LiveUSB mode,. Hope this help you :)
