Fog .32 Single Partition Upload issue



  • Hi All

    Hopefully i’m overlooking something and being a noob, however if i try and upload a single partition XP image, i get past the resize test and process, then i get a blue screen stating Restoring MBR, then the machine restarts.

    Any ideas where i have gone wrong?

    Thanks In Advance



  • Hi,
    I am new to fog and am running 0.32 and I believe I am having the same issue. Does anybody know of a fix for this? If not which is the last stable build that I can try so I can get this working?



  • That is interesting. I find this strange as I have created over the past couple of months single partition resize-able images as well as dual partition resize-able images (for windows 7) and all has worked flawlessly. Now all of a sudden I am having problems both capturing and deploying them. I have not changed anything on my FOG server and have been using it to image XP machines for the past 2 years. Although others have posted having similar problems I have seen no real viable solutions to speak of. I don’t understand how the scripts can appear to be changed/wrong as I have not updated my FOG server so why the errors?



  • Had a look at the error and the created files on the server, it would appear that the script is looking for a file that is the mac address with .000 on the end, this however is not created ( only a file with the same name as the image)

    The Error states “CHMOD /images/xxxxxxxxxxxx.000: No such file or directory”

    Not sure when this file is created in the script so still looking…



  • Sorry, Tim, I should have mentioned that I am running on .29 so I am not sure if the script changed at all but it certainly sounds like the same problem. If you are getting the same error about the backup path doesn’t exist (right after the blue screen goes by - you have to scroll up to see the message) then I assume it is the same issue. What do you mean by swapping out the older version of the script?



  • Hi There,
    Glad I’m not alone with this one, I’ll have a look at the script see if I can bottom it out a little., out of interest, did you have a look at swapping out the older version of the script?



  • Hi Tim,

    I am having the same issue and mention it under my BOOTMGR is missing post (I should have created a new post). I don’t have a resolution but I have noticed that there seems to be an error in the FOG script ( /bin/fog ) If you scroll up using the <shift> key and the <page up> key after the blue screen flashes by in debug mode you should see an error. There appears to be an error on line 624 that causes this. I fixed that error in the script, however, now I am having a problem regarding partimage not being able to determine the file system type. I haven’t gone further yet to see if I can fix that. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Boot the PC up in Gparted, or fog debug and run the command fdisk -l and look at the layout of the disk. If you’re doing a xp resizable image you should only have one partition.[/quote]

    Yep, only got the 1 partition showing, as /dev/hda1 as a hpfs/ntfs file system, thought for a moment i really had missed he obvious, any other ideas?
