In new episodes of Star Wars (specifically Ep.II Attack of the Clones) there were clones that was created from Jango Fett, including Boba Fett, so does it mean that in the original episodes (IV to VI) all Storm Troopers are the same clones, and they all look like Boba Fett?

While I think this is on-topic, you might find questions about the 'canon' of Star Wars better answered on the sci-fi and fantasy site. There's no in-movie evidence to support my answer below, it has to come from the broader Star Wars canon. – iandotkelly Nov 3 '13 at 15:14

No, the original clone army consisted of clones of Jango Fett, but as the Stormtrooper Corps was built from that original, clones of different people and even just normal born humans were allowed to join the Corps.

For more information see the Star Wars Wiki.

They were all different heights and had different voices in '77. – Ben Plont Nov 4 '13 at 17:54
@BenPlont - I was trying to remember whether they were different heights. The voices don't all sound that much different. I guess the fact that Han Solo and Luke get away with being Stormtroopers in the Prison Block shows that they must not all be clones. – iandotkelly Nov 4 '13 at 19:30
According to Leia, there does appear to be a regulation height.... – Gusdor Jun 11 '15 at 7:08
I think there were a couple times we saw some with helmets off - mainly in VI, at the base on Endor. Don't think they looked the same. – Darrel Hoffman Dec 15 '15 at 21:28

Some Stormtroopers were conscripted from worlds which the Empire acquired through connquest. They trained at the Imperial Academy on Corida.
