I learnt that
clonezilla is a software for cloning the HDD's. I am setting up a laboratory for students, who would work on Linux and Windows for different and respective purposes.
Some of the systems in the Laboratory already contain a running OS, but do not have the software. Also they are not dual bootable.
I have done the following:
- Created a live USB for booting as mentioned on the CloneZilla website.
- Created an image of the entire HDD on the source computer, on a pocket HDD with 1TB space.
Now I want to copy the image (cloning activity Part 2), to the new HDD. I am wondering about the formatting of the HDD and the partition table. Will the CloneZilla take care of the entire activity?
I am asking this question because the answer here Does clonezilla format the destination HDD? is not quite clear.
I am also interested in making multiple copies of the same HDD over the LAN (where I do not have two Ethernet cards) but I would put it as a separate question.
