Since the Clonezilla mailing list doesn't seem very active, I figured I should ask in a Linux forum to see if someone else has experienced this issue and knows if something can be done.
On a test host, using the www.partedmagic.com
live CD, I created two partitions: One to hold an OS I wish to use for testing (/sda1), and a second partition to hold images (/sda2). Unless I overlooked it, when saving /sda1 into an image file in /sda2 (ie. /dev/partimage), I was not prompted whether to include the MBR.
After trying out Windows7, I used Clonezilla to restore an XPSP3 image, and GParted to set /sda1 as Boot (ie. active, I guess). FWIW, Gparted tells me that /sda1 starts at Sector 63.
When rebooting the PC, the screen remains blank, with no error message.
Could it be that Clonezilla didn't save/restore the MBR? Does it mean that the images I made so far are all unusable? :-/
Thank you for any help.
