I've got a clonezilla image that I need to change out two license keys in. Is it possible to boot from the image and run off it to make changes? It's an image of Windows 7.

    Clonezilla images cannot be booted from. You will need to restore the image, boot to the disk, make the changem, and recreate the image.

  • @Joseph: You can loopback mount Clonezilla images to view/extract files, so perhaps modifying the files inside is possible too.

  • not necessarily need to boot, but at-minimum you'll need to mount it.

You can make bootable image from clonezilla files with

cat sda1.ntfs-ptcl-img.gz.* | gzip -d -c | partclone.restore -C -s - -o sda1.img

If you have used not gzip compression, change accordingly. You cat chane compression format with file command.

The bad thing is I don't know how to get it back to Clonezilla format for sure.
