Capturing an Ubuntu 18.04 corrupts filesystem on client
I twice tried to capture a machine with a fresh installation of Ubuntu 18.04 with fog 1.4.4. and in both cases I got an error during the resize of the filesystem. See picture:
Result was in both cases, that the client-OS did not come up anymore.
I do not know, whether this error also comes up with fog > 1.4.4

@tywyn Glad you got it working. There’s been a whole lot of improvements around partitions and resizing in the last year, so it must be an issue with 1.4.4 in your case.
I cannot see an LVM being in operation:
$ df | grep sda /dev/sda2 479565648 10727584 449163292 3% / $ sudo vgdisplay $
I tried to capture another ubuntu 18.04 machine with fog 1.5.2 and it worked though. Maybe it ia an issue with 1.4.4

@tywyn Ubuntu by default sets up LVM partitions - and FOG cannot resize LVM partitions. During Ubuntu 18.04 installation, you will need to manually configure the partitions - and not use LVM. FOG can resize Ext4 type partitions, so use those for everything except swap space.
