Clonezilla: shutting down caused by "critical temperature"

When running clonezilla on a i3 laptop, it shut down because of high cpu temperature. The solution for this is below:
  • While getting into the clonezilla wizard, and before starting the cloning process, Alt+F2 open another terminal:
  • Run the command
    you will see the output like below:
    analyzing CPU 0:
      driver: acpi-cpufreq
      CPUs which run at the same hardware frequency: 0
      CPUs which need to have their frequency coordinated by software: 0
      maximum transition latency: 10.0 us.
      hardware limits: 933 MHz - 2.13 GHz
      available frequency steps: 2.13 GHz, 2.00 GHz, 1.87 GHz, 1.73 GHz, 1.60 GHz, 1.47GHz, 1.33GHz, 1.20 GHz, 1.07 GHz, 933 MHz
  • Run the follow command:
    sudo cpufreq-set -c 0 -f 1.60GHz
    to throttle the cpu speed to 1.6GHz.
  • Alt+F1 to switch back to clonezilla terminal, and start the clone process
