Is there, in Lenny, a command or tool for cloning a GPT?
Use dd, it'll take a looong time but you'll have a bit copy.


How do you know how much to copy? GPT partitions vary in length.

You don't need to know, you just use dd over the entire disk (i.e. sda instead of sda1).

Just to be clear, you're trying to copy the entire disk with all its partitions, right?
