I've got a customer who's getting a message telling me either hard drive has crashed or somehow become unbootable. Wen setting these up, I have image files, created by clonezilla, that I restore to a new computer, as needed. I don't have one of that model on hand, so I am wondering if I can put a new HD in an old Dell desktop, boot off my clonezilla boot disk, restore an image to that new HD & ship it out to my customer? If not, or would it be better to put new HD in a drive caddy & restore that way or any other way to restore an image to a HD, without the computer that its eventually going to be used in?
