CloneZilla "Boot Failed!"

  • I am building my first OMV-System. :)


    I found the option to "Reboot to CloneZilla Once" in the "OMV-Extras | Kernel" section and wanted to try it.


    But booting CloneZilla failed.


    This lines were repeated many times for about 1 or 2 minutes.

    Code
    calling: test-builtin
    load module index
    Network interface NamePolicy= disabled on kernel commandline, ignoreing.
    Created link configuration context.
    unload module index
    Unload link configuration context.



    I guess this has something to do with UEFI and my NVMe-SSD.
    Installing Debian Jessie was not easy, either. :D


    Is this a know issue.
    Is there a fix?
    Google did not found much.


    This is not a big problem, but it would be a great feature when working.

    Yep, it is a known issue and there is no fix that I know of. The clonezilla version omv-extras uses is old which doesn't support your hardware. I can't use a newer version because there is no way for to autoconfigure networking in the newer versions. You will have to download the latest version and boot it manually from a usb stick or something.

  • Just download the new clonezilla-iso and extract it to /path/to/clonezilla.

    That might work but it wouldn't be headless since you would have to setup the networking from the clonezilla menus.

    Sorry to resurrect old threat. I have the same problem: boot failed. No fix yet?

  • I can't fix it. Newer versions of Clonezilla don't allow booting a headless system with networking.


    Oh, I see. Thank you for prompt answer. Any other way to backup system, except dd, it is quite complicated for my level?
