using clonezilla to restore a complete disc


I just backed up a complete copy of my C drive which has been partitioned 3 ways to have both windows and Linux mint on it with the loader which comes up when the computer is turned on. My question is that recently I used Norton ghost to backup my system and it failed to reinstall the grub. Will clonezilla reinstall the boot loader on my drive if I make a complete restore of the entire C drive. Is there any thing else I should be concerned about upon restore which I should take into account? I'm fine now but am asking concerning the future possibility of a restore.

i believe it gives you the option to do so,maybe depends on version? in other words just read the menus, they do have it in ther, its like a star for a check mark, and if i remember it is on by default

btw, did you image the partitions individually, or the whole drive? if you did the whole drive then yeah, you should have it all, including mbr

As long as the loader was included in the backup.

If you already restored image, you can also use linuxmint-live-cd and install boot loader. This is similar.
