Can any one tell me the best version of fog to use with ubuntu server 16.04 Im pulling my hair out trying to simply capture a windows 10 image nothing works ? ive done clean installs of 1.4.4 and 1.5.0 on 16.0.4 and every time it hangs on clearing ntfs flags I have also chmod 777 on images folder and chown fog for images . The fog server is installed in a vm using KVM but i would think thats the issues however I installed that same setup on a physicall server and everthing worked :( really fraustrating

@gmonk I use Fog 1.3.3 for all my windows 10 captures and deploys works great in VM.
do a capture but still stuck at "Clearing NTFS flag …Done "
Can you please take a picture of that and post here.
As well I’d ask you to schedule a debug capture task (like you normally do but just before hitting the schedule button in the web UI there is a debug checkbox). When you get to the shell (after boot up hit ENTER twice) run the following commands:
gdisk -l /dev/sda ... sgdisk -P /dev/sda ... sgdisk -O /dev/sda ...
Take a picture and post here as well.
Ok so im still having issues I pretty much started over did a clean server install and Windows 10 enterprise install in my vm environment…booted to audit mode installed some software and sysprep/shutdown. Booted up and registered with FOG to do a capture but still stuck at "Clearing NTFS flag …Done " The weird thing is if I switch the image type to multiple partitions non re-sizable it works no problem but I need to be able to capture with the option to resize.
Thanks guys… I will give your suggestions a try and reimage
every time it hangs on clearing ntfs flags
I agree, the issue is not with FOG, but with your target computer not being shutdown cleanly.
- Sysprep power off your computer
- Shut it down with
shutdown -s -t 0
- Or disable fast startup to ensure the disk is closed properly when win10 is shutdown.

@gmonk A few things:
- 1.4.4 is the correct version to use.
- For your problem specifically, you should read through this: https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=Windows_Dirty_Bit
- You should ensure any bitlocker on your image is disabled - do not assume it’s disabled already, go check.
- What model is the host you’re capturing from?
