Well, if it’s deploying RAW and you get a bootable image and want to use it… I guess I’d deploy it, verify the hidden 100mb partition was restored by Windows, sysprep it, then upload the image again as Single Partition/Single Drive, and it should be able to resize it as intended and save you a lot of space and deploy time.
Unless I’m missing something or not understanding something else, I think that might work.
If you wanted to be sure, I’d just start with a new image of a fresh Win7 install that had the 100mb partition and verify your fog setup is accepting the Single Partition/Single Drive upload before attempting anything else. It’ll save a lot of time down the road, in my opinion. Once you’ve verified that part is working as intended, it’ll be easier to find any other issues that might occur.
