I've got 13 machines with identical hardware that I need to deploy. The machines all have the new UEFI standard, which apparently forces GPT regardless of disk size. I've thus far been unsuccessful in attempting to restore a Windows 7 image using Clonezilla.

1) What do I need to know about GPT in this context?

2) Does Clonezilla support GPT? If so, what options should I be using? If not, what should I use instead?

  • It looks as if the GPT support in CLonezilla is supported but fairly new (within the last month or so). Are you using the most recent version? – Andrew Rice Jun 23 '11 at 18:43
  • I've tried both 1.2.8-23 and 1.2.8-46 – rawsted Jun 23 '11 at 20:23
  • Define "been unsuccessful". – JdeBP Jun 24 '11 at 13:11
  • BZZZT! UEFI does not force the use of GPT. But that'll likely be the default, yes. – MikeyB Aug 29 '11 at 14:38
