Newbie wants to learn?
I am a new to the forums & is my first post.
And very new, rather in my neonatal period, in the world of Linux/ Unix.
Just learned to Dual boot Vista & Ubuntu using GParted to create partitions.
Can you smart guys teach me how to create & restore an Image of my drive, like I used Symantec Norton Ghost/ Acronis True Image 11?
Where & how to start?
How to take an exact( Cold or Hot Imaging) preferably cold......image?
How to place it on a partition or an optical media?
How to restore?
Can I create image of both Vista & Ubuntu in 1 or do I need to create 2 separate one?
Can I create an image remaining in any environment or I have to be in Ubuntu etc.
Sorry don't mind my silly queries coz as i said am new to Linux..........been tired of using windows since 486-DX2.
Hoping to hear from you smart people,
Thanks in advance,
I did it myself..........created an image of a dual boot Vista & Ubuntu Hardy Heron 8.0.4........stored it in the Logical D NTFS of Vista partition & than restored it overwriting both over Vista & Ubuntu.........results PERFECT including boot loader etc!!
1. C: NTFS Primary 40 GB Vista
2. D: NTFS Logical 20 GB
3. /root: ext3 20 GB
4. /swap: 512 MB
5. /home: ext3 15 GB
Took 29 mins to create & the same to restore approximate.......image was split into 4 GB size to burn on optical media.....image size 12 GB.
Any one interested to learn PM.
Now I have perfected & now make a dual boot again with a peace of mind.........this was just a tester, experiment.
Now with those 3 DVDs I can install a dual boot with all progies, special settings etc in 29 mins lol
