Unable to install image before partition table was created.



  • Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with FOG 0.32 on DL360e Gen8, no RAID, legacy SATA support.

    When we [COLOR=black]created [/COLOR]a task to [COLOR=black]install [/COLOR]an [COLOR=black]image [/COLOR]on to a new HP Proliant DL360e Gen8 Server, we found it failed to [COLOR=black]install[/COLOR]. If we booted from a GParted live disk and [COLOR=black]created [/COLOR]a (MSDOS) [COLOR=black]partition [/COLOR][COLOR=black]table[/COLOR], then started FOG again, the [COLOR=black]image [/COLOR]installed OK.

    Is there away for FOG to do this to avoid having to boot from a GParted Live disk first?

    Many thanks.

    You can use the debug mode of FOG to issue some commands and actually use linux tools to delete and create partitions.

    In this guide I create ntfs partitions on old linux hard drives so I can image them with Windows 7.

    You can do something similarly if you like by issuing commands to format the drive in fdisk.
