Stuck on /dev/sda
I am trying to image a desktop (only has one hard drive) and I am getting to the point where it says:
Looking for Hard Disks…Done
Using Hard Disk /dev/sda
It just hangs there… am I missing something?

Thanks for the solution - for others reading, there was an extra step after running ‘fixparts’, I entered the name of the device, in my case ‘/dev/sda’ before following prompts to delete and then write changes with ‘w’.
Awesome, thank you so much! Uploading now!
cancel out of that .
With the prompt there type the letter w
Hopefully all works great
and when back at terminal prompt, run:
Above that it also says:
Partition table scan: MBR: MBR only BSD: not present APM: not present GPT: present
Found valid MBR and GPT. Which do you want to use? 1 - MBR 2 - GPT 3 - Create blank GPT Your answer: _
The i8042: No controller found error is probably nothing. The fact that it finds the drive and doesn’t do anything after that is the factor I’m worried about. The i8042 is just the kernel reporting it’s loaded the driver, but can’t find a controller for the driver itself. it’s nothing to be overly concerned about.
Can you cancel out the task, and recreate the task as an upload-debug?
From the host choose Basic tasks -> Advanced tasks -> Upload - Debug and schedule it.
It will get you to a terminal prompt.
Run the command:
gdisk -l /dev/sda
Please report back with the output of that command. Don’t do anything with the system after that.
This is an upload.
It also gives “i8042: No controller found” after loading the kernel.
I wish I had remote access, but this seems to be an ever cropping issue lately.
My guess is it’s related to how the drive is partitioned. It’s probably partitioned in mbr format, but has GPT structures on it.
Because of this, the partition tables aren’t laid out or read properly, and can’t find the first partition to begin with. Is this upload or download?

Client is Windows 7 64-bit (fresh install) on a DH61AGL motherboard. I am able to upload images on hundreds of other clients on this network fine.
