  1. Dual / Triple boot Disc cloning

    After spending days getting my dual-boot OS X 10.6.4/Windows 7 Ultimate to work (tinkering with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], chameleon, EasyBCD, Windows boot manager, etc., etc.), I just had to have a perfect backup image. I tried a dozen imaging tools, but the only one that created a perfect image of the original WD 640GB disk on a backup WD 640GB disk was Easeus disk copy. Even copying with both drives internal (I have removable KF-91 cartridges, so it's easy to insert and remove disks), it takes several hours to make the copy. But it's worth it. From Linux, Parted Magic sees both installations, but only recognizes the HFS+. It says the other file system is unknown. From OS X, the disk utility reports Mac OS Extended (Journaled) for Snow Leopard and Windows NT File System (NTFS) for Windows 7. From Windows, Partition Wizard recognizes the NTFS but not the HFS+. Somehow everything works fine, including the slow-but-perfect backup with the freeware version of Easeus disk copy.
  2. Dual / Triple boot Disc cloning

    To image my OS X 10.64 / Windows 7 Ultimate dual-boot disk I've been using Easeus Disk Copy. You have to copy to a disk of the same size or larger. The backup image is an exact replica of the original and has saved me several times when I messed up the original disk.
