Create Clonezilla USB Stick

This article describes the steps to create a bootable Clonezilla USB stick. This stick can be used to boot a computer and create or restore a cloned image.

The USB stick should be a minimum of 1GB in size. It will be totally overwritten and erased so make sure there is nothing of value on the stick.

This procedure assumes you’re working from a Windows PC. Additionally, this procedure uses the Rufus open-source utility to burn the Clonezilla ISO to the USB stick and make it bootable.  There are other utilities that can be used for this procedure for non-Windows environments.

  1. Download and install the Rufus utility from here: https://rufus.ie
  2. Download the alternative stable Clonezilla ISO image. Select the “amd64” CPU architecture and ISO file type from here: https://clonezilla.org/downloads.php
  3. Insert the USB stick.
  4. Start the Rufus utility.
  5. In the Device field, select the USB stick.
  6. Click the SELECT button and choose the Clonezilla ISO.
  7. Click the START button.

The process will take about a minute to complete. When finished remove the USB stick and close the Rufus utility.
