Yes this is also possible (dd is your friend)
You can also put the boot image on a hard drive. I did that a long time ago it’s the same process for a usb disc and a hard drive when using a Linux machine. Even with Mac it should be the same.

Yes it is possible but will last much longer than doing a fresh install, much much longer as DD copies everything, even the empty space on the drives.

Clonezilla is an option, but an initial install is still required & if you can't boot the target system via cd\dvd\usb you still need to do everything on a 2nd machine. And for a one it's a lot of work, far more than doing an install and transferring the drive from one machine to another.

I know I just wanted to say it is possible.
If I can’t boot from USB but have access to the hard drive I would install it on another computer and move the HD or make a 2nd hard drive with the install media.

But If I have another machine already running Linuxcnc and want to clone everything I would give DD a chance ;-)
Cause remembering alle packages I need to install later and compiling come other stuff, failing installing other packages trying again, also takes time ;-)

Clonezilla is a hell of a lot quicker than using dd.

You can do a disc to disc clone. Doing it this way doesn't give you a image you can backup.
A disc to image then to disc clone. This way does give you an image you can use multiple times.

Maybe I am to old scool here. I was a regular Linux user 15 years ago the I switched to mac and stopped playing around with computers (had something to do with getting a job).
It was when I started using LinuxCNC four years ago i used Linux again. But only for my CNC. I am happy many of the old stuff still works.

Clonezilla uses DD to do it's thing, but id does skip the empty sectors, so it is much faster.

Why not use balena etcher, that is cross platform.
I do lots of different iso to sd/ssd. Never had a non booting that way.
m5c.
