Deploying FOG in a raw SSD disk
I have several computers that had SSD issues, forcing assistance to change them by newer, raw disks.
Each computer has two-disks (sda-SSD 100Gb, sdb-SATA 500Gb). Only SSD was changed.
So I cannot deploy image on them due to it.
That’s the classical error message:
Image store corrupted, unable to locate MBR, no file found (MBRFileName)
Other message I got (in other moment):
Error trying to restore GPT partition tables (restorePartitionTablesAndBootLoaders)
I saw some ancient issues opened here, but nothing of them conclusive.
As workaround, I make a clear-Windows 10 formatting; after that, I can deploy successfully on them.
Do we have any updated news about it?
@Redbob Hmm, that’s interesting. Have your tried in non-debug mode again? Failure or does it run through as well? What changed in between? Non-debug and debug mode are not any different while the later one only waits for your confirmations and if variables are set will print more debug information.
@Sebastian-Roth, it’s funny. Fog deployed successfully all partitions, simply pressing ENTER after each breakpoint.
@Redbob Sorry I wasn’t specific enough. Now on the last screen you posted we see the blue command shell waiting for you to enter a command. Type in
fogand hit ENTER. That will start the task in debug mode and you need to confirm every step. Having set the mentioned Host Kernel Args we should see helpful information at the point where it hits the error. Take a picture of that error screen and post here.
@Sebastian-Roth That’s what I did.
Follows Settings you suggested:
After usual messages, these are what I get. Here are the images:
@Redbob I was asking you to add the Host Kernel Args and deploy again till it fails with one of the errors. Then take a picture or copy text output here.
@Sebastian-Roth Follows here:

@Redbob FOG web UI -> Hosts -> select the host you want and scroll a little down till you find the field called “Host Kernel Args” -> put in
isdebug=yes ismajordebug=1and save.

@Sebastian-Roth, where will I add these Host Kernel Args?
@Redbob Please add the following to the Host Kernel Args:
isdebug=yes ismajordebug=1and then deploy to that machine again. Take pictures of the messages on screen and post here.
