Cloning a hard drive using the Ubuntu live CD #4

In this video I show you how to easily clone a hard drive. to do this you’ll need a live ubuntu CD and a second hard drive. This can be used to clone any hard drive with any OS installed in it. The command is: sudo dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb bs=1024 where sda is the hd you are copying from and sdb is the hd you’re copying to. so make sure you change those according to your setup. **You do this while booted into an Ubuntu live cd** **make sure to backup all important data before doing this as a precaution in case something goes wrong.**

Ylmf OS 3.0 32bit Linux with Windows XP theme Screencast Review

Screencast style Review of Ylmf OS 3.0 32bit which is a Linux that looks like Windows XP theme which is based on Ubuntu Linux 10.04 Lucid Lynx. I am demonstrating the Open Source Operating System running inside Oracle VirtualBox Virtual Machine with Ubuntu 10.10 as the host. Ylmf OS is a new Ubuntu-based distribution from China with the GNOME desktop tweaked to resemble Microsoft Windows XP. Version 3.0 was released early this week based on Ubuntu 10.04, with the major components being Linux kernel 2.6.32-22.33, X.Org Server 1.7.6, GCC 4.4.3, and GNOME 2.30.0. It allows for a live CD mode, and one can log in with username “ylmfos” and an empty password. The live CD employs Squashfs LZMA, which combines one of the best compression algorithms, LZMA, and one of the best compressed file systems available nowadays, Squashfs, so as to include as much software as possible. Ylmf OS 3.0 also supports several approaches for installation. It includes a number of classical Linux applications for both newbies and veterans, and supports Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese and English.
