You can use the command "dd". For example, to clone disks in a computer:

dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb

But I advise to you a properly tool: Clonezila (

This is an EXCELLENT tool for this purpose!

Thank you, I will give it a try.
Do you maybe know how they manage bulk installation in large cluster environments?
