Clone any OS partition perfectlyIn one box I needed to copy the boot partition to another disk while retaining the MBR and other data.
I simply ran this command:
[code:1:1b1ff110ca]dd if=/dev/hda1 of=/dev/hdb1[/code:1:1b1ff110ca]
[b:1b1ff110ca]if[/b:1b1ff110ca] = source patition
[b:1b1ff110ca]of[/b:1b1ff110ca] = destination partition
Here's an interesting article on it
