  1. Boot the machine via Clonezilla live
  2. The boot menu of Clonezilla live
  3. Here we choose 800x600 mode, after pressing Enter, you will see Debian Linux booting process
  4. Choose language
  5. Choose keyboard layout
  6. Choose "Start Clonezilla"

Select image name and destination disk
Choose the Clonezilla live image as source image:


Select the destination disks "sdc", "sdd", and "sde" we want to restore:

//NOTE// Be careful when choosing the destination disks. Everything on the destination disks will be overwritten.

Choose to check the image integrity before really restoring the image to disk sda:
