Image restore fails with: cannot find disk on system (getHardDisk)
I have a very odd issue: the hard disk (I think) on two previously working computers failed. So bought 2 new ones. Went from 512GB to 1TB. BIOS recognises the new disk. But the kernel doesn’t. I get: “cannot find disk on system (getHardDisk)”.
I did exactly the same replacement 2 months ago, although in that case I got a 1TB WD I think, this time I had a 1TB Seagate Barracuda. But specs appear to be pretty identical.
Is something else wrong with these computers? That’s what I’m thinking. Maybe motherboard gone or something. Is that a reasonable guess for this kind of problem?
We need a bit more information to know where to start
- What version of FOG are you using
- What version of the FOS kernels are you using
- What target hardware are you using (manufacturer and model)
If you manually register this target computer, then schedule a capture or deploy (doesn’t matter) but before you schedule the task check the debug check box then schedule the task. PXE boot the target computer and after a few enter key presses you will be dropped to a linux (FOS) command prompt. At the FOS command prompt key in
lsblkthen take a clear picture of the results and post them here.
