Exit returned code 4 Trying to restore GPT



  • Ubuntu Linux 14.0.4.6 LTS
    FOG 1.5.8

    Getting exit returned code 4 when restoring image to a smaller drive. Image created with 500GB drive on a physical machine. Restoring to same machine, but a smaller hard drive produces the above error. Here are more details about the error:

    "Warning! Current disk size doesn’t match that of backup! Adjusting sizes to match, but subsequent problems are possible!

    Warning! Secondary partition table overlaps the last partition by 506792321 blocks!
    You will need to delete this partition or resize it in another utility.

    Problem: partition 4 is too big for the disk.
    Aborting write operation!"

    Here the contents of the partition files for the image in question:

    Hopefully that gives you enough information to troubleshoot this issue. Thanks so much for looking at this for me. If you need more details, please let me know.

    Thanks!

  • Yep, that was it 🙂 I searched and searched yesterday, but couldn’t find anything that specifically applied 🙂

    Anyways, mental note, delete recovery partition after Windows 10 is installed 🙂

    Great forum, glad I was able to find a solution.

    Looking at my system, will post back if I have the same results.
