Creating your own iso with Systemback

Installing Systemback on your system

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:nemh/systemback
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install systemback

After the installing process, open the App and select Live System Create option. After the iso's creation, you can burn your usb stick using the option send to target.


Configure your BIOS to boot the usb stick and select the option Install. Now you just have to define your HD partitions and install the new S.O.


if you are using some UEFI bios/boot option, you might have to install the system without /boot/efi and do it after the installation using the Live optioon of Systemback.

To install grub on a EFI boot partition, do the follow:

  • remember to replace XXX and XX with your /dev/sd correct partition
  • Use Gparted to tag the /boot/efi partition with boot option
  • The EFI partition must be FAT32
sudo mount /dev/sdXXX /mnt
sudo mount /dev/sdXX /mnt/boot/efi
for i in /dev /dev/pts /proc /sys /run; do sudo mount -B $i /mnt$i; done
sudo chroot /mnt
grub-install /dev/sdX
