I have some new netbooks that I am trying to image.

One method i use is clonezilla, but I get an error saying ' /dev/sda contains GPT signatures'

I have tried various ways of removing signatures:
1. Type "parted /dev/<devicename>", usually "parted /dev/sda".
2. Once inside parted type "mktable":
-> Table type: msdos
-> Destroy data: yes
-> quit
3. GPT should now be removed.

also tried :
# dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb bs=512 count=2
# dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb bs=512 seek=2929629465

i still cannot image these damned things.

I get the same error. GPT signatures

has anyone else had similair issues?
