I don't want reinstall, ever. Stage4 [Solved]

Postby donnie » Thu Apr 08, 2010 0:24

-create small ext2 primary partition somewhere below 8 GB threshold;
-install SystemRescueCD there, so that Sabayon's GRUB will be chainloaded;
-use Partimage or scripts from this page http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Custom_Stage4
-make stage4 image and keep it. Elsewhere :)

Update for Sabayon arrives: do equo update && equo upgrade && equo conf update
Update for SystemRescueCd: DONT

After that:

-install Win7 on the first partition of HDD, asking Windows Installer not to format all HDD please
-??? :(

So, my idea is just to keep SystemRescueCd on HDD, not mounting it in Sabayon. And never update it!!! And never use any liveCDs, liveUSBs, etc......

I was unable to boot to Sabayon at all, so i don't believe much in eque rescue backup. Will it backup my config files, for example?

It seems the only proper way is making backup of / partition at once:

Clonezilla will be a good choice, but i doubt if it allows not to store, for example, /home/music
