Hp imaging issues



  • . The strange thing is that it allows me to register the host no problems. The issue only comes when I’m trying to upload the image. Any one got any ideas?
    Please and thank you.

    fixparts removes erroneous GPT data. What causes the pausing is the image truly believes it’s MBR based, but the disk has false GPT information still on it. This freezes the system until a key is pressed as the data can’t be found. It finds a bad first partition (GPT usually has 3 or more) and can’t process the partition table.



  • Hi,

    just to clear this up, was that fixparts thing something like chkdsk /f under a windows machine?
    Or was his windows reinstall wrong, old windows install on harddisk (no partition wipe while reinstall)
    and because of this bad boot configuration?

    I only ask because i know that fog will abort image uploading when windows wasn’t shutdown propperly.
    Thats a good reason, who wants an image that may have errors or at least will welcome after download
    with an error that it wasn’t sd propper ;)

    Regards X23

    Cancel the task you have currently for upload.

    Recreate it, but choose your host, then choose Basic Tasks. Click on Advanced Tasks. Choose Upload - Debug.

    Schedule the task.

    Start the system.

    It will boot to a terminal prompt.

    Type:

    >fixparts /dev/sda
    >``` Follow and confirm the displayed information.
     
    Once complete and saved, run the command
    

    fog

    Notice the uploading hopefully.

    Dude you are the man, It actually worked!!!
