    It’s kind of a weird request.

    While it’s, technically, possible, it’s not a simple feat.

    You could do a resizable image, if the example I gave is exactly what you were looking for. And I imagine this would work properly.

    In multipartition image type, you wouldn’t be able to tell it not to upload the 3rd or 4th partition, but after it’s uploaded, you could delete the “extra” partitions and FOG would skip those partitions during the download task. The issues you may see with this, though, is the disk will still have the “extra” partition on it. They won’t have any data, but the tables would still be created.

    You only want to clone specific partitions?

    For example, lets say the layout of the drive is:
    /dev/sda1 Windows 7 recovery
    /dev/sda2 Windows 7 main data
    /dev/sda3 Software installers
    /dev/sda4 User backups

    And you only want to clone partitions /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda2?[/quote]

    Yes, it’s that!

    It´s possible?
