SOLVED Error trying to restore GPT partition tables

  • Hello all, having this error suddenly on UEFI with images and devices that were working before. I noticed (really late) that last month a number of FOG services failed and the UEFI images I have are showing 0 bytes size.

    I’ve restarted

    and I’m trying to decide how to proceed because I confirmed the images are still there, not 0 bytes, and legacy images work.

    Fog v1.5.7

    After restarting FOGImageSize.service
    failed services

    @rankinc This partition number 5 is a recovery partition which FOG doesn’t move on the disk. So it’s unable to shrink your main Windows partition.

  • @Sebastian-Roth thanks for the reply. I had searched around but there were a lot of threads and I missed that one. It appears the person I tasked with taking over image creation may have ended up with a sizing problem.

    @rankinc While it’s not great the FOG services aren’t running I’d say this has nothing to do with the error you posted in the other picture.

    Please try the following:

    • Schedule a new deploy for a host with 256 GB SSD but before you click “Create Task” tick the checkbox for debug.
    • Boot up the client and hit ENTER twice to get to the shell - run command fog and step through till you hit the error.
    • Now back in the shell manually run sgdisk -gl /images/UEFI-CafeteriaPOS/d1.mbr /dev/sda, take a picture and post that here.

    As well, can you please post the contents of the text file /images/UEFI-CafeteriaPOS/d1.partitions you have on your FOG server.
