I suggest using dump since this works fine. For example:

fdisk -l /dev/sda
Disk /dev/sda: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 1115 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 1 1115 8956206 5 Extended
/dev/sda5 1046 1115 562275 82 Linux swap
/dev/sda6 1 131 1052194+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda7 132 138 56196 83 Linux
/dev/sda8 139 155 136521 83 Linux
/dev/sda9 156 678 4200966 83 Linux
/dev/sda10 679 711 265041 83 Linux
/dev/sda11 712 842 1052226 83 Linux
/dev/sda12 843 973 1052226 83 Linux
/dev/sda13 974 1045 578308+ 83 Linux

Partition table entries are not in disk order
Now you would need to dump each partition ... using for instance:

dump -0 -z9 -f sda1.dump /dev/sda1

And later to restore it

restore -rf sda1.dump

If you need more help please check the man pages!
