Hello All

One for any Thinkpad owners using Ubuntu

Just bought a second hand Thinkpad X200s, and it runs Ubuntu 12.04 from a USB stick really nicely, with the basics working fine (I mainly need suspend to ram).

I'd like to be able to restore the hard drive including the recovery partition to its original state in case I want to pass the laptop on (came with Vista Business).

I've used clonezilla to image the whole drive including the mbr, using these shortform instructions


I have reason to believe the result will be restorable, see


especially the last post on that page.

Anyone done this? Had any issues restoring?
