Image made on slow pc is slow after restore on new Dell with SSD



  • Hi,

    I am new to creating Ubuntu images.
    We have a bunch of new laptops which need to be imaged with FOG.
    We started yesterday with the installation of a FOG.
    Created an image on a VMware virtual machine and restored it on a new Dell Laptop with SDD.

    What we see is:
    -Slow boot of the laptop -> After a restore do we have to do anything that recognizes the hardware changes? Or something to outline the SSD or something?
    -Hard disk size is not resized to the complete hard drive size -> our image was 40 GB -> after te restore on SSD it is still 40 GB our SSD is 240 GB -> We chose for Multiple Partition Image - Single disk (No resizable)
    -What about drivers if you make an image of a slow system and you restore it on a new?

    Thanks,

    Kr,

  • Hi [URL=‘http://fogproject.org/forum/members/junkhacker.21583/’]Junkhacker[/URL],

    After creating a image with “Single disk” “Resizable” it’s allright.
    The whole disk space is allocated.

    Super!

    Thanks for the tip!

    use a script to expand the drives. I have something on my windows machines that does it automatically as I deploy everything on a small image. Linux must have an equivalent. either way… look up on Ubuntu resources rather than here for better help with expanding partitions.

    if you use a Multiple Partition Image - Single disk (No resizable) image type, it will not resize automatically. frankly, that i think that should be obvious from the fact there are “resizable” and “not resizeable” descriptions in the image type.
    what you’re describing is what the Single Disk - Resizeable image type is for.



  • Hi Tom,

    Thanks for your answers.
    Do you know that there is a function in FOG to auto extend a volume during a restore.
    Let’s say my image is 40GB and will be restored on a 250GB drive.
    That auto extends on restore of the partition?

    [quote=“jfeyen, post: 39479, member: 26836”]Hi Vincent,

    After doing an apt-get update, upgrade and reboot it’s seems to be faster.
    It was Ubuntu 14.04 Desktop.

    In Windows you had to slipstream drivers, this is something you don’t have to do in Ubuntu?
    Do you know how to check if the SDD is proper alligned for performance?

    Do you know how to resize the image to use the complete hard disk instead of taking the same as the image?

    That’s a ton of questions.

    Drivers are all handled (on the linux side of the house) in the kernel, so technically no you do not need to do this.

    SDD is properly aligned? That’s kind of up to you. FOG tries to ensure alignment is proper for the disk layout though.

    spec of laptop?

    ‘slow’ doesn’t help much. give statistics :)

    which Ubuntu did you use?

    Ubuntu generally has good driver support, but check by running Ubuntu on one of the laptops :)
