Alternatively, there's the HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool; As of August 2012, the latest release seems to be 2.2.3.To create a partition on a specific start sector, use "fdisk -u /dev/sd X". A work-around is to delete and re-create the target partition.-j2 (default: enabled) Clone the hidden data between MBR and 1st partition: If this option is set, the 15 hidden sectors between Master Boot Record and the first partition are restored.This area usually contains some data necessary for booting.The option is enabled by default and should be kept enabled if you are cloning a bootable disk.
Based on the names, it appears that Part Clone is done by the same people who do Clonezilla (Steven Shaiu and the NCHC Free Software Labs in Taiwan.) So Clonezilla is a live CD with a text-based front-end to Partclone. Here's more information on the relevant options: -t (default: enabled) Client does not restore the MBR (Master Boot Record): Do NOT restore the MBR (Mater Boot Record) when restoring image.What does CZ provide that a regular live distro doesn't?Note: If a USB keydrive doesn't boot, try using the open-source and up-to-date Rufus utility to format and burn the ISO file.-g (default: enabled) auto Reinstall grub in client disk MBR (only if grub config exists): Causes Clonezilla Live to reinstall GRUB into the Master Boot Record of the disk if at least one partition contains GRUB config file (/boot/grub/menu.lst).The option is enabled by default and shouldn't cause any harm.
Just ignore the error, and try to connect to the Clonezilla host through SSH.
