Strange Partition Boundaries

  • In the past, I imaged several Windows 7 machines with no problems. The FOG servers had to be physically replaced, and now I can’t image anything. I tried manual imaging via a debug task, and partimage would throw a segfault before quitting. I took a look at the partition information from one of the machines that the old server had imaged, and here’s what came up:

    Command (m for help): p
    Disk /dev/sda: 250.0 GB, 250059350016 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/sda1   *           1          26      204800    7  HPFS/NTFS
    Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary.
    /dev/sda2              26       24524   196782080    7  HPFS/NTFS
    /dev/sda3           24524       28476    31738880    f  W95 Ext'd (LBA)
    /dev/sda4           28476       30402    15471800   12  Compaq diagnostics
    /dev/sda5           24524       28476    31737856    7  HPFS/NTFS

    I suspect partimage is failing because the partition boundaries are set like that, but how did this happen?

    I don’t know if this helps, but the old server ran FOG 0.29 on Ubuntu 10.04; the new one runs FOG 0.29 on Ubuntu 11.10.
