Add Clonezilla to Grub

Can someone tell me how to set up Clonezilla, such that I can launch it from a boot option in Grub, in order to take system images?
I understand that I should use the toram parameter, so it will run completely from memory, thus enabling it to catch also the boot partition from which it launches.
I have dual boot: Ubuntu 18.10 and Windows 10.
No idea how to do this, and in fact, I never even used Clonezilla. I was a Macrium Reflect man, in my Windows days...

Now THAT'S an interesting question :)

No promises from me as to when, but I'll scout around, I am curious, too.

Cheers

Glad I'm interesting. :)
I can link you to a couple places that talk about it, including an official clonezilla page
https://clonezilla.org/livehd.php
https://askubuntu.com/questions/880470/adding-clonezilla-to-grub-boot-menu
https://forum.manjaro.org/t/solved-add-clonezilla-to-grub-menu/40751
The clonezilla page seems a bit outdated, and I got stuck at this point:
  1. Mount /dev/sda4 as /mnt, you can make it by: mount /dev/sda4 /mnt
I don't know why they decided to choose sda4, and in any case, that command did not work on my system.

Ta (pron. "tar", Aussie for thank you) for the links, they may fast-track me :)

I'll get back as soon as I can
