Blinking cursor after imaging Windows 7 32-bit on a Dell Optiplex GX250

  • Hello all,
    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.

  • Tom,
    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.

  • 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?
