    Unhappy Clonezilla...cloned the wrong way


    not sure if this is probably the wrong place to post this.

    So, i have a Mac that had a good hard drive.
    Clonezilla'd it to ensure the data was going to be safe.
    almost puked when Windows XP started loading.


    any thoughts on how to "undo" the clonezilla load?

    I don't believe there is an undo option for Clonezilla, but maybe someone will correct me if that's wrong. My guess is that you will need to either reinstall from scratch, or restore your system using a known to be good backup.

    ozar is right.
    There is no undo.
    Reinstall or restore from backup are your options.

    crap, i was afraid of that.
    i didnt know if there was any form of software out there (proprietary or not) that would be able to scrape the last layer off the drive.

    You can take a look and maybe try TestDisk but I'm thinking that it probably won't work now that a new system has overwritten the old one:

    TestDisk - CGSecurity

    It might be worth the attempt, though.
