Default Dual boot HD backup - 11-12-2011, 04:38 PM

My dual boot (SL and XP) 10v is almost 2 years old, so I am thinking that I should begin to prepare for the eventual death of its HD. Has anyone figured out how to backup (or clone) a Hackintosh dual boot HD so that the dual boot ability is preserved?

Boot with a Linux Live CD and use 'dd'.


dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb bs=4096 conv=notrunc,noerror

Those arguments depend on your particular setup. Don't just type that in blindly.
