Blinking cursor after imaging Windows 7 32-bit on a Dell Optiplex GX250
I have uploaded the image successfully, it seemed to image on the client PC successfully but when it tries to boot to the HDD it sticks on a black screen with a white blinking cursor…any ideas/thoughts?

Multi Partition Single Disk Its part of the disk type assignment for the image.

I loaded it as MPS. It works great now! Thank you for all your help!
Could you try uploading as MPS and re-downloading to system to see if that helps?
single disk, ntfs only, resizeable
What type of image is it?
What I mean by this is is it NTFS - Resizable or MPS?
It looks like you’re only running one partition for Windows 7. I don’t think resizable likes this method quite yet.
I received as follows:
[root@10/]# gdisk -1 /dev/sda
Partition table scan:
MBR: MBR only
BSD: not present
APM: not present
GPT: not present
Found invalid GPT and valid MBR: converting MBR to GPT format.
Disk /dev/sda: 312500000 sectors, 149.0 GiB
Logical sector size: 512 bytes
Disk identifier (GUID): E9E53B7B-C649-426D-AAB3-B22F4843D866
Partition table holds up to 128 entires
First usable sector is 34, last usbale sector is 312499966
Partitions will be aligned on 2048-sector boundaries

Can you start the system in a debug task (either upload or download debug whichever is needed)
When at the terminal prompt run:
gdisk -l /dev/sda
What’s the output?
