Clonezilla and Multiboot Iso Mount USB Drive


Hello all!

I stumbled across this today and it is exactly what I have been looking for!

I have been able to get a few of my desired tools working 100% (dban, gparted, ophcrack, UBCD) but what I would ultimatly hope to get working is CloneZilla!

I was able to get the Clonezilla user interface to load correctly but when I choose any of the options I encounter an error "ntfs volume version 3.1" repetitively. I have a feeling it is because I am launching the iso wrong in my menu.lst config file for grub. This is what I have. Does anyone have any ideas?

title CloneZilla
find --set-root /CloneZilla.iso
map --heads=0 --sectors-per-track=0 /CloneZilla.iso (hd32)
map --hook
root (hd32)
chainloader (hd32)
boot

Granted this isn't a "fix" to the problem but I do have a work around for you. The newest version of Parted Magic has Clonezilla built into it and Parted Magic boots just fine using the default Grub menu.lst that is created by the Multiboot.exe.

I stumbled across your post because I was trying to do the same thing (and getting the same error message) but after a few days of hardcore Google searches I stumbled across the fact that Parted Magic had built in Clonezilla, gave a try, slapped myself of the forehead, and moved on with my life.

Sorry...

Things change quickly in linux, and the latest versions of PartedMagic no longer have Clonezilla. There was also a GParted Clonezilla live-cd, but Gnome no offers the combination.

The PartedMagic release notes mention the size of PartedMagic with Clonezilla as the reason for it no longer being included.

Well, let me rephrase that.

http://ubcd.linuxfreedom.com/download.html

The beta version of Ultimate BootCD 5 has a version of Parted Magic in it that also uses Clonezilla that boots with GRUB.

It's what I'm currently using on my util hardrive.

Change the following and it will work great.

title CloneZilla
find --set-root /CloneZilla.iso
map --heads=0 --sectors-per-track=0 /CloneZilla.iso (0xff)
map --hook
root (0xff)
chainloader (0xff)
boot

Still scrolling the NTFS error for me.

Might as well test md5 of iso on flash drive. I played with that a while ago but found more than a few iso's just would not work correctly.

I don't remember if that was based on grub4dos or nt but see this also. http://myhowtosandprojects.blogspot....ash-drive.html

Clonezilla Alternate Karmic 20100213 Working

I managed to get the alternate version of Clonezilla to work with the following:

title Clonezilla Live! Alternate - Karmic (20100213)
find --set-root /iso/clonezilla-live-20100213-karmic.iso
map --heads=0 --sectors-per-track=0 /clonezilla-live-20100213-karmic.iso (0xff)
map --hook
root (0xff)
loopback loop /clonezilla-live-20100213-karmic.iso
kernel /live/vmlinuz boot=live union=aufs nolocales noprompt vga=758 ip=frommedia toram findiso=/clonezilla-live-20100213-karmic.iso
initrd /live/initrd.img

I got the kernel settings from: http://clonezilla.org/clonezilla-live/livehd.php

Similar settings for the stable version 1.2.2-31 had a repeating FAT error and the kernel is "vmlinuz1" and the initrd is "initrd1.img"

You are a god among men, sir. Sure enough the Karmic version works great with these settings. The normal version scrolled the same old tired NTFS error. Seeing as both versions function the same way I am now a Karmic user.

Hope the OP is still paying attention to this thread!

grub4dos USB booting for Clonezilla standard version

After following the info posted by "icerjosh" I managed to get the standard 32-bit / i486 version of Clonezilla to boot on my USB stick with grub4dos.

I copied his menu.lst entry for the "karmic" Ubuntu version of Clonezilla, but then I went to the liveHD instruction page (here: clonezilla dot org / livehd.php ) and checked on their kernel parameters and they were different. I compared the two and did some editing, and here's what I ended up with that worked:


Code:
title CLONEZILLA Live CD 32-bit [new approach]
find --set-root /clonezilla.iso
map --heads=0 --sectors-per-track=0 /clonezilla.iso (0xff)
map --hook
root (0xff)
loopback loop /clonezilla.iso
kernel /live/vmlinuz boot=live live-config noswap nolocales edd=on nomodeset ocs_live_run="ocs-live-general" ocs_live_extra_param="" keyboard-layouts="" ocs_live_batch="no" locales="" vga=788 ip=frommedia toram=filesystem.squashfs findiso=/clonezilla.iso
initrd /live/initrd.img
It booted up and I was able to image a Linux hard drive with it successfully. This was my 3rd or 4th attempt to get the USB stick to boot Clonezilla. I have the 32 and 64-bit versions of Clonezilla standard on there. Next I will try to put in the boot entry for the 64-bit one...
I just started looking into using Clonezilla BTW, after having trouble using Acronis to image an Ubuntu server.

This is how I got Clonezilla to work on my grub2 multiboot usb:

Code:
menuentry "Clonezilla Live" {
set isofile="/boot/iso/clonezilla.iso"
loopback loop $isofile 
linux (loop)/live/vmlinuz boot=live live-config noswap nolocales edd=on nomodeset ocs_live_run=\"ocs-live-general\" ocs_live_extra_param=\"\" ocs_live_keymap=\"\" ocs_live_batch=\"no\" ocs_lang=\"\" GRUB_GFXMODE=1024x768 ip=frommedia nosplash toram=filesystem.squashfs findiso=$isofile
initrd (loop)/live/initrd.img
}

This thread was started in 2010, not sure if it still relevant. I've been booting the clonzilla iso with out problems for a while using multiboot.
