  1. CloneZilla with Windows 10 and Office 2016 - Licences issues?


    Hello again!

    So far I enjoy my stay here. on this forum. I get plenty of useful information about windows 10, so thanks about that!

    I have another odd question today.. with my current operating system Mint, after installation I got used to this: Install the OS, install my programs, configure everything then clone the result using bootable CloneZilla. So if i have a problem I can replace my OS with the clone is about 5 minutes total.

    Now I would like to do that with Windows 10 and Office 2016 with my new computer but.. I don't know how this procedure could conflict with Microsoft checking the licenses automatically for both Windows and Office.

    Let's say i use my computer for a whole year, during that year, I will receive many updates for both windows and office, the Windows revision might even change, and Microsoft will check my Office license often during that year.

    The question is: What would happen if I would replace a broken OS by a clone that is 1 year old? with the older updates, older everything.

    Could I get some problems with the licenses in the sense that Microsoft could think that I am trying to authenticate another computer or anything. They could think that I am trying to clone a computer with activated licenses in it, which I highly suspect.

    Microsoft is always 10 steps ahead of me on anything these days, they thought about everything.

    What do you think ?

    :)

    Cloned HDD to SSD where is my office licence?

    Hi jb-655

    What Microsoft Office licence do you have, is that Office 2016, 2019, or Office 365?

    If any of the above licences, follow these steps to perform a full repair of your Office installation . . .

    Open Control Panel - Programs and Features

    Click Microsoft Office in the list of installed applications

    At the top, click 'Change'

    On the resulting dialog, click 'Repair' - choose the Online Repair, it is a comprehensive fix

    That should fix any issues with your Office Installation . . .

  3. Cloning with Clonezilla not working

    No-shame pre-24 hour bump. *Cool CloneZilla with Windows 10 and Office 2016 - Licences issues? :cool:


    Here's what happened in a condensed form:

    • I have 2 HDDs, a Raptor and a 1TB drive
    • I install Mac OSX on the Raptor
    • Using Clonezilla, I make an image of the Raptor with OSX on it and store it on the 1TB drive.
    • I install Windows 7 on the Raptor.
    • Using Clonezilla, I make an image of Win7 and store it on the Raptor.
    • For fun, I use Clonezilla to restore the OSX image back to the Raptor.
    • I boot OSX and it gives me errors
    • I use Clonezilla again and restore the Win7 image back to the Raptor
    • Everything works
    Why would won't OSX boot? I think this has to do more with Clonezilla than OSX. It was working before I cloned it.
