Hi All,

I am using Clonezilla to clone my entire disk. I have created image of the drive using Clonezilla. Now how can I restore this image on the other new machine.What the steps I need to follow ??
I am confused about that first I will have to install OS or with the help of Clonezilla image I can directly restore it ????

Waiting for your all valuable reply

Thanks in advance

Here is a link to a detailed tutorial. It will walk you through the process.


The target partition you are restoring has to be formatted before you restore the partition.

Not sure it has to be formatted. Can't hurt I guess. It would depend on how you cloned it "exactly". If you cloned entire disk then you won't need extra steps until you boot to new larger drive or exact size drive. If you are cloning windows, it may never work due to other reasons.

You need to have that set of file available either directly attached or via network.

See this for examples.

Clonezilla will create the partitions itself, that's why it warns you that all data will be lost
