Crash/stop before restoring

Post by fb1 » Sat Aug 04, 2012 9:11 pm

I am quite a newbie concerning linux. Got the following problem when trying to restore an image

I run partimage from the "system rescue cd",
got my source file on a usb stick, mounted to /mnt,
got a freshly formatted partition as destination (few gb smaller than the partition I saved the image from before). I tried both > fat32 and ntfs.
So when I select "next" on the first screen, Partimage just quits without displaying any error.

..Maybe there's an obvious mistake, I just don't know about. Please teach me :-)

you prolly already solved.........but partition must be exact size or larger for PartImage restore to be successful - it does not matter if all space on original partition is used or not - total size of target partition must be same size or larger than original size of partition saved as image.
