What partition i must select to clone

Created: 22 Feb 2013 | 3 comments


I have several partitions in a harddisk.

100Mb system reserved, active, primary partition

93Gb Windows 7 C , boot, paging, primar partition

93Gb primary partition

7,2Gb primary partition

900Gb D, logic unit

37Gb primary partition

Primary partition are linux partitions and i only wish create image of windows partition from ghostcast server (gss 2.5) and then restore on another machine which hasn't any partition. I don't know if i must create image of system reserved partition(100Mb).

On ghostcast server i select harddisk1 and partition 2 to create image of windows 7 (C). Is it right?

What is the right procedure?

System reserve partition is one of the critical partition to boot the machine. Ideally in your case you should take the complete disk image because you have linux partition on disk.

Do you have some sort of boot manager to handle which operating system starts up?  If so, is it Linux or Windows based?

You will certainly need both the System reserve partition and the Win 7 partition imaged, as both are required for Win 7 to boot. The actual partition numbering is also critical otherwise again it will not boot.

It use grub ubuntu to handle operaing system starts up, so it is linux.
