Cisco hands-on labs are a learning resource provided by Cisco Systems, a well-known networking and IT infrastructure company. These labs are designed to offer practical, real-world experience in working with Cisco networking equipment and technologies. They are particularly valuable for individuals preparing for Cisco certifications, such as Cisco's CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate) or CCNP (Cisco Certified Network Professional) exams, as well as for IT professionals who want to gain hands-on experience with Cisco products and solutions.

This tutorial guides you through the relevant steps that are required to initialise and install a physical LAB PC, with a local Clonezilla restore option. You’ll go from an empty computer to to a fully configured Windows/Linux dual-boot environment.

Clonezilla is a free and open-source disk cloning and imaging software that allows you to create backup copies of entire disk drives or partitions. Done experimenting? System crash? Hardware failure? Malware infection? Recover your system in its entirety back to a clean state.
