Fog + SSD + Win 7



  • I have installed Windows 7 on Intel SSD drives (320 series). While uploading image its identified as raw image, while the image in fog is Single partition (NTFS only, resizeable).
    This means that it copies the entire disk and takes longer to upload/deploy image.

    Any ideas to fix this ?

    Thanks a lot !

  • I noticed exactly the same and would just like to add weight to the argument for imaging using the multi-partition single disk option. I think it may be specific to windows 7, not sure.



  • I had this when I first started imaging ssd’s. I figured out that you have do image it as a multi-partition, single disk



  • Hey Jigar, I’ve been experiance the exact same problem as you. After imaging an SSD & Win 7, I get “Missing Operating System”! I thought I was going crazy…I plugged the imaged (“Missing Operating System”) drive into a usb adapter, and see that the main partion is moved over, and all the files are there, however the tiny first partion is corrupt for some reason? Not sure if this shed’s any light on the issue, but would love to find a solution too. Grrrr…I sense many late nights ahead of me :(



  • for all my images (Just win 7), i shrink the C drive to as small as it goes in disk management, sysprep, fog prep.
    images are stored as multi partition ntfs.

    never had a problem.



  • Hi Viggo,

    My for is the latest 0.32 i believe.

    I am using single partition image because, i think that would work with different size of hard disks. I could be wrong.

    I will try it with 2 partitions and let you know…

    Thank you,
    Jigar



  • Wich version of fog ?

    If you are running v 0.29 or earlier i suggest you give your reference computer os id 2 (Vista)
    Why are you doing the one partition image, i am using win 7 with the default 2 partition image, because it always works :)
