Hey there! Ok, here is basically a quick rundown of my situation:
Lets say I have two physical hard drives: drive 1 and drive 2. Drive one has two partitions, each with an OS on it. Lets say I make an image of sda2 (which has windows 7 on it) and save it for later. Not a full disk image, just a partition image.
Ok, so now I have a partition image of sda2 from hard drive #1. So now I get a brand new hard drive- hard drive #2. I install some stuff on it, have a good couple of partitions. 3 to be exact. I decide to move windows 7 over to that. Well, sda1 is occupied and so is sda2, so I decide to put my windows 7 partition image on sda3. The size of this partition is much larger than the original partition that held Windows 7, so it should be fine.
Apparently, my clonezilla has a quirk that if I make an image of sda2 on hard drive #1, it HAS to go on sda2 on hard drive #2 or it says it is corrupted. Neither sda2->sda1 nor sda2->sda3 will work. No, it HAS to go from sda2->sda2. This has caused me massive headaches trying to figure this out!
Does anyone know a workaround for this or if the very newest version of clonezilla has corrected this? I do not appear to be the only person who has run into this problem (see link below- another question from this forum but the issue was never addressed.) but it doesn't seem to be well documented, at least not that I can see.
Any help would be great!

More info: I am transferring the image via SAMBA using two PCs and a home network.
