file system involved is ext3 and without 'lvm'. so i am good on that.

i could not find partimage-ng for download, could you point me to a
genuine source, sourceforege doesn't have it.

following is the link to /tmp/partimageng.log
> http://pastebin.com/YrbmsF99

also noticed following error from partimage log in /var/log

 >>  "[Can't read bit map block 0 from image]"

looking out for that errors tells me that it could be because of
running partimage in 'gui' mode as opposed to batch, still looking for
more reasons.

meanwhile i will look for other errors and wait for link to partimage-ng.
