One image to multiple disks : Restore an image to multiple disks, e.g. massive production of live USB flash drives.
  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"
  7. Choose "device-image" option
  8. Choose "local_dev" option to assign sde1 as the image home
  9. Select sde1 as image repository, then choose "1-2-mdisks" option
  10. Select image name and destination disk
  11. Clonezilla is restoring disk image on disk sde to sdb, sdc, sdd, and sdf.
Select sde1 as image repository, then choose "1-2-mdisks" option

Choose the directory name on /dev/sde1 as the image repository. Here we put image on the top directory (i.e., Current selected dir name is "/"): If you are not familiar with the disk or partition name in GNU/Linux, read the hints:
'The partition name is the device name in GNU/Linux. The first partition in the first disk is "sda1", the 2nd partition in the first disk is "sda2", the first partition in the second disk is "sdb1"... If the system you want to save is MS windows, normally C: is sda1, and D: could be sda2, or sda5...'

Then Clonezilla shows you the disk usage report:

Here we choose "Beginner" mode:

If you choose "Expert" mode, you will have some chances to choose advanced parameters, e.g. imaging program, compression program, etc.. You can see more details here.

Now you can select "1-2-mdisks" option:

Now Clonezilla prompts you to insert destination USB flash drives if you haven't done that:
