Using Linux LiveCD + External HD To Recover A Windows ISO
I've tried a lot of Googling, but maybe I just fail at the internet...
So here is what I'm contemplating trying.
Copying the Windows drive:
## Mount the internal HD from the live CD.
mount -t ntfs /dev/xxx /mnt/windows -o ro
## Use mkisofs to create the ISO and store it on the external drive.
mkisofs -o /mnt/externaldrive /mnt/windows
That's the easy part. But in the case of say a hard drive failure and I want to replace the image on a new hard drive how could I go about that appropriately?
I'm sure I would have to recreate the MBR, would I be able to use GRUB or LILO to boot into Windows? Also how would I appropriately write the ISO to the internal hard drive?
Thanks in advance.
