Hi all,

I am trying to set up a triple boot iMac with Mac OS X, Windows 7, and Windows XP. You can probably use Carbon Copy Cloner and Deploy Studio to image and restore the images if any of the partition get corrupted. However, as I am trying to triple boot, this will not work. I am looking a disk cloning software that can run on a Mac and simply clone a disk to a disk image and restore it to a different computer when needed.

I have been searching all over but could not find a software that could do that. If anybody know of a software that can clone an exact disk image and be able to restore it on the Mac, then I would really appreciate if you can give a suggestion. If you have any other ideas, that would be great.

I am was thinking of using a software in Windows, but I am not sure if there is any software in Windows that would be able to clone disk and restore it for iMac.

Thanks.

Have you tried using Disk Utility to make an image of the device (not the partition)? I've not done exactly what you describe, but I have successfully used Disk Utility to clone single-partition Mac drives that subsequently booted just fine. The Disk Utility help has brief descriptions of most of these options and seem pretty straight forward.

Good luck!

Thanks, I will try that. If that works it would be great but I have never come by any information on the net about that. I will look more into Disk Utility. Will post back if it works.
