Simple answer, just takes some terminal and CCC to do.
Ok, the answer is simple, the process is time consuming.
Download Carbon Copy Cloner, after that copy the drive using CCC make the disk image bootable, and ASR compliant. This will make your hard drive image 100% bootable, this though will take a good portion of time.
After you have done that, copy the file to a place where you will not erase... remember where the disk image is, it will become important later...
Then boot from your other partition, then open the terminal and type in:
sudo asr restore -source <compressedimage path> -target <targetvoume path> --erase
This will copy the information in the disk image to your laptop, the problem here is two fold though.
1. the sudo command gives you nearly limitless accessibility through the terminal, so make sure that the target is exactly where you want it, for the erase command will wipe out the drive you are copying to.
2. You don't have to add in the --erase command, although it is highly suggested, especially with how you don't want to compromise your data.
This will take time depending on how large the disk image is. An average disk image of 6GB will take 30 minutes to copy over.
Once this is done, restart the computer and you will be good to go. If you have any questions ask, I'll help where I can.
