I actually responded to your original question and since your in the same place I was 2 years ago I'll share my experiences again. We used clonezilla based on the fact they offer multicasting... I did it in 10 computer batches just to make sure everything was going OK. We had a handful (3 or 4 I forget) of machines that asked for licenses and just called ...

Okay, I've experimented a bit and tried out several different new "workflows" and have one that works in this case. Here is it - it's very simple. Use the same disk utility for both formatting and partitioning the destination disk that you use for the restore itself (in this case the disk utility on the Lion recovery disk). That's it. In detail: ...

An ISO usually refers to a container file that contains a file system with the data that file system references. Simply put, it's a copy of a file system in a file. This is fine when working with a ROM (like a CD or DVD), as those are inherently simple from a file system aspect. Like, to my knowledge, the ISO 9660 format doesn't include file-level ...

Your MAC address is a hardware identifier for network cards and as such has nothing to to with your Linux system. The answer is no. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MAC_address

I`m probably going to get a hand-slap by others, but hey - just helping... Look here, this guy details how to copy and generalize the image to a template. And before anyone asks, I have done this with older VM workstation and vSphere installation. This guy outlines the instructions better than I can... :-) Cloning a VM without vcenter in ESXi Update: ...

It's possible using Clonezilla. The issue might be in how you load Clonezilla. Try Parted Magic's version: Download & burn the ISO boot the CD Connect the drive to the USB/SATA connector THEN start the version of Clonezilla that is included with Parted Magic

No. Each existing (major) drive imaging software has used a different proprietary implementation. So one backup image can not be read with another company's software.

You should type 192.168.100.1 this should let you into the modem web console (just like your router) once you are inside browse through option and figure it out. Mine says service provider is allowing 2 computers to be connected under the same modem MAC address. But only one computer is recognized. So it could only be two things either your ISP provider is a ...

Some drive imaging software, like the Acronis True Image (a commercial product), will allow you to create a bootable CD/DVD that can accomplish the task.

Indeed, GNU ddrescue is a good choice. Use it e.g. with 10 retries in case of errors: ddrescue -r 10 -v /dev/faulty_drive /dev/external_drive optional_logfile.log Note that by using the above command you are going to overwrite all data on your external hard drive. Perhaps a safer way is to backup the data to an image file on your external hard drive ...

Those are somewhat incompatible goals: either it's a completely accurate image of the filesystem, or it's reorganised to be an ISO. Are you using Linux? What you could do then is burn an image of the filesystem as a file within an ISO, and then mount it as a loopback device. If your hard drive fits on a DVD, it's a very small drive...

SD cards and Sony MS has copy protection which may display as unreadable parts of otherwise good digital media. I'd ignore all the proprietary formats and use plain image (of partition or disk) then you can eventually extract data or play it back, and resize using tools on target system etc.

You might not have a problem with drivers, but you will have a problem with the windows license. It will note that major hardware has changed. As far as the drivers, that's not such a hurdle in most cases (thought it can be if the computers are very different).

This question is badly worded and thus difficult to answer. You should provide more details on the hardware, and how you mean "completely impersonate". Also you should confirm the nature of the router [presumably WAN] connection. In the simple case where you are just getting an Ethernet feed and the upstream provider is not running anything fancy (like ...
