Cloning Compact Flash (CF) card for Amiga
While being in the process of putting my A1000 with Vampire in production I was wondering how I can clone the Compact Flash (CF) card of my Vampireized A600.
The A600 is nicely set-up, has everything on it that I need. So I’d like to clone the CF card and put it into my A1000.
Certainly the screenmode settings have to be adjusted later, because the A1000 uses a 16:10 22“ display while the A600 has a 4:3 19” display attached. But that should not pose a problem at all.
It is possible on Linux or Mac to use the
dd command to make a backup and restore it on another CF card.
Here is how to make a backup:
sudo dd if=/dev/disk5 of=~/Desktop/amiga.img bs=1m
disk5 is the device here. But it may be different for you. Open the harddisk tool on Mac or check with '
diskutil list' for your CF card device.
Finally, when you made the image you restore it on another CF card:
sudo dd if=~/Desktop/amiga.img of=/dev/disk5 bs=1m
And… hurray, it boots.
