How about 
- http://www.feyrer.de/g4u/
- http://www.gnu.org/software/parted/index.shtml
- http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/debian-linux-help/13168-cloning-hard-drive-dump-restore-command.html
- http://linux.die.net/man/1/dd
- http://clonezilla.org/

instead of iso.

Most of the solutions expect that OS is not running while cloning is done.
