Hi Labdooers, as you might have noticed (L)Ubuntu 18.04 LTS brought up some changes in the installation tools. To clone actual Labdoo images you should use an actual Parted Magic (PM, the versions 2012/2013 might not work cloning 18.04 images). But an actual PM is not for free anymore (11 $ per license)!
