guys I would like to know the best practices or at least method to do the following things i am working on.
I have installed triple-boot OS(windows 7, RHEL linux and Mac OS 10.6) on imac7 with refit tool. The goal i want to achieve is to make disk images of each of the partitions of the OS so that i can restore and install the images of them on other Mac machines.
I already made window 7 image through script i wrote with help of ntfsclone. I would like to know the way to create linux image and mac os.
will vanilla dd command like dd if=/dev/sda3 of=~/linux.img do the job? mac os partiton can be imaged through the build-in disk utility as far as i know
Will the above methods workable to create the bootable image? Do I need to merge them somehow and How? How to include EFI boot partition to make them bootable?
If you have related experiences or hints, please shed me a light. thanks for your helo
