How to configure GRUB ?

For some time I have been using Clonezilla to backup/restore linux installatinos.

I would like - instead to USB-key that is allways not to be found, to somehow "move" the clonezilla (on a USB stick).

What I have tryed to is to make a seperate partition to install this on, copyed all the files on the USB -key to that partition, and then make a new entry in GRUB via yast. Then I point to the new wmlinus and initramfs.

I would have been much surpriced if something link this was working after first shot. But it was also not working after the 80. shot.

Can anybody help ?

As Subho.d said, boot your system from CD/DVD, go to rescue mode.

grub-install /dev/sda
(or hda)

Hi again,

Thank you for these answers, they certainly pointed me in the right direction. But it was a bit more complicated than that.

To work properly, Clonezilla needs a lot of parameters passed to the kernel. I found this, that in the end proved to work: - just in case others want to try the same.

Just remember, when you install clonezilla on a harddisk, you can not make a disk-to-image backup of that harddisk.
