Taking an image of Compute Stick

Hi All,

I need to obtain a image of a Compute Stick.

I assume the best way to go about this would be creating a live linux bootable usb and booting to it, then using dd to take an image of the flash storage on the compute stick.

Has this been carried out before?

Thanks

Hi,

I have used Clonzilla to clone the Compute Stick before, works pretty well. It should be a lot "easier" compared to using "dd".

This is my procedure for imaging an ICS.

USB boot drive with a Live OS, and a USB hard drive (for the images) plugged into a usb hub.

Boot to the Live OS usb drive, mount up the larger USB drive where you want to put (or get) the image.

Unmount the local storage (if it was automounted). In my case this is /dev/mmcblk0p2.

to take an image from a stick:

cd /usbdrive/

dd_rescue -a -b 8M /dev/mmcblk0 filenameoutput

restoring an image is the opposite.
