Have you tried any of the guides linked from the Clonezilla site?


Failing that, you may want to consider reasons behind the cloning: are you doing this in the case of data corruption, in which case scheduled backups may be a better idea? If you are cloning purely for failure of one disk.. well, that's what RAID1 is doing, surely?


If it's OS corruption, booting from a rescue disk (CD/DVD/USB/network) to recover/fix the OS and access the data may be a safer option.
