Quote from: VastOneNow, to be honest and solely IMO, I would want to have a working version of linux with grub working installed before I did this only because I know there is background and a working knowledge of all of this to begin with

sudo -v restfs vsido_linux_02SEPT2022.fsa /dev/sdxx
sudo fsarchiver -v restfs vsido_linux_02SEPT2022.fsa /dev/sdxx
