leo5111,

You can always use rsync from the command line, but if you want a nice pretty program try Clonezilla-live.

http://www.clonezilla.org/

leo5111,

It is very likely that it will boot ok. It has been a while since I looked at this program, but I am sure there is a way to enter boot options if needed. You will just have to look at the documentation if it won't boot directly.
