comment Can a loop mount a partition that is on the device I will be mounting from?
Yeah, coolness is pretty much it. I want it to look like the backup partition is a separate drive. Mostly for showing-off purposes...

What I'm aiming for as an MBR table setup is something like ... /dev/sda: external HDD I'm booting from. /dev/sda1: "/" partition - boot flag, /dev/sda2: swap partition, /dev/sda3: backup data partition. My question is, can I mount /dev/sda3 so that it appears as if I am loop mounting a file - e.g. can I do mkdir -p /mnt/disk and then mount -o loop /dev/sda3 /mnt/disk

comment What software should I use to make a copy of my hard drive in ISO format?
Could I have the setup: --computer with its internal HDD --one of the partitions on the external HDD be boot-able --and the other partitions (or just images if I only wanted one partition) on the external be loop-mounts on the external drive back to the external drive?

I wasn't intending for the ISO to fit on a DVD. The ISO was to be archived to an external HDD. And no, I wish I was using Linux, but I am not, so loopback-mounting is unfortunately out of the question.

comment How do I safely partition a hard-drive to accept a GNU/Linux distribution in the presence of OneKey Recovery?
I guess I could use DD - a *nix tool. It isn't really imaging, it just copies the selected data bit-for-bit to the chosen destination or medium. What is your opinion on that?

What tool do you think I should use to create a backup of Lenovo and LENOVO_PART?

That does sound useful, but the partition you would be removing is "LENOVO_PART", which gives me no issues...it is the extended partition mess with "Lenovo" that is extremely aggrivating.
