I have a big plan for my old laptop. So I need to backup entire
root partition. Of course I need to backup my
bootloader, too. In this articel, I will write how to backup
I did this in my Arch Linux machine, but I’m pretty sure this is relevant to another gnu/linux distro. I must warn you, that I not yet try to restore from this backup procedure.
Here what i did:
- Open my
- Issue this command:
sudo dd if=/dev/sda of=/home/sumarsono/bootloader_arch_sumar bs=446 count=1
Here the output:
[sudo] password for sumarsono: 1+0 records in 1+0 records out 446 bytes copied, 0,000302793 s, 1,5 MB/s
bs=446? You can found the information here
At last but not least, Sorry for my bad english.
