Does anyone know how to take an ISO image of a complete working machine (Mint) that I can then use to install a "working" copy on VPS or (in this case) Hyper-V?
The actual scenario is: I have a local backup mail server running postfix/dovecot under Mint. It has a lot of the setup I would need to install on the new Hyper-V server (changes would need to be made but it would be a big saving).
Obviously, the image would be uploaded to the server as a file rather than run from a DVD.
I've seen several responses online to this kind of question but so far they seem too complex to manage easily, too simple (eg not a full image) or are riddled with problems and inconsistencies.
