Disk Imaging - What App to use?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


A question to those out there in Hackintosh world:


Is there ONE imaging app can create an image of my entire hard drive? (youre probably thinking "you fool of course there is")


So there is a catch.....


Can it accurately image the following partitions in one image file for later restoration?


1. Chameleon Bootable Partition.


2. Hackintosh (HFS)


3. Windows (NTFS)


(without the usual command-line editing to make partition(s) bootable with some of the osx-based partition apps)


What I'm looking for is, in the possible event of a distaster, I can image my entire hdd into one (huge) image - and then restore this image back to the hard drive with all ntfs/hfs partitions intact and as they were originally.


If possible, I didn't want to use different imaging apps (eg some people use Acronis for Windows partitions and then CCC for OSX partitions).



Is there an "all in one" imaging app that can fully snapshot all Windows + OSX + Chameleon Partitions on my hard drive?? (and so they boot without post command-line intervention)


Thanks in Advance :)

Go for Norton Ghost 2010 or 2011 it can Image the individual partitions. I have been fors last 7 years now.


Thanks Stealth, I was thinking of Norton Ghost to be honest.


Just to confirm... can it image the HFS partitions (and Chameleon partitions)?

    • i think the "red light" you are referring to is that you have a optical SPDIF output (3.5 mm) combo jack. it most likely will be "red" when audio is active. 
    • Domanda , ma il tuo configplist lo ha settato cosi Gengik????
      Noto molte cose atipiche , tipo aperto con Clover configurator nella sezione ACPI il nome DSDT.aml NON è selezionato , quindi in teoria NON dovrebbe caricare il DSDT che hai in Clover ACPI Patch , se usi SSDT x la CPU NON dovrebbero servirti quelle personalizzazioni sempre in configplist sezione CPU ...
      Secondo me dovresti partire da un configplist pulito , xche sempre secondo me c'è rimasto delle schifezze di qualche tool x installare facile    EDIT
      Scaricando il configplist di jolly NOTO ha impostato +o- come intendevo fare io , sistemando quello  sopra elencato e bammmmm NON avvia , mi forniresti x favore Hack info che trovi nella mia firma ???
    •   Can you share the Clover folder that lets you boot?
    • yes it is. i can boot using a backup from a backup of my clover. i am just trying to fix the VGA /HDMI so i tried using the clover i got from Allan
    •     I mean't to fix that. The new attached EFI only contains new USB patch that will unlikely fix anything unless your hackintosh is installed on a USB drive. If it is installed on your hard drive, as I said, try playing with the patches I attached in the screenshot (i.e. disabling some of them).   Your SATA Mode is AHCI in the BIOS right?
