How do I create a backup bootable DVD image in Mint 10?

Postby Mr_Snelson on Wed Apr 06, 2011 5:43 pm

I'm trying to create a backup bootable DVD image of my entire system that I can re-install if something went to crap. So far I have looked into Remastersys and clonezilla. I cant get Remastersys to work correctly with Mint 10 and clonezilla isn't bootable. Does anyone have any solutions or a fix to get Remastersys to actually work in Mint 10?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

It is bootable. I use it both as Live CD and Live USB.

To make a Live CD/DVD:
Download an ISO file for CD/DVD. Then you can burn the iso file to a CD/DVD with any burnning program. The CD can then be used to boot the machine you want to image or clone.

To make a Live USB flash drive:
