Target partition size is smaller than source



  • Hello,

    I have recently replace my old Ghost for FOG but i have a trouble with multi-patition on Win7 and WinXP:
    For 7 I have this:

    The source disk have two partitions, the first with Windows and a second empty and no first partition on 105Mb. Whene I make the image indicating Windows 7 as OS and then download it I have this problem, if I make the image using “Other” as OS the download work… only with a same disk size :(

    With XP (2 partitions) I can create the image indicating Windows XP as OS, but same proble whene I download it on a different disk size .

    I got enough space with different disk size because it work fine with Ghost, did I miss [SIZE=12px][FONT=Arial][COLOR=#181818]a[/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE][SIZE=12px][FONT=Arial][COLOR=#242424]n[/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE][SIZE=12px][FONT=Arial][COLOR=#303030]yt[/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE][SIZE=12px][FONT=Arial][COLOR=#3c3c3c]hing[/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]?

    I’v tried with single disk resizable but same prob’…

    IMHO this was not related to permissions as you see that pretty much all files and directories already had 777 mask.

    Please help us with some more information about your system. FOG version, disk layout, operating system(s) on the client, image type (resizeable?)



  • Did this work? Permissions? I’m having the same issue with a dell m4800.


  • Testers

    Try the following commands.
    sudo chown -R fog.root /images
    sudo chmod 777 -R /images



  • Thx ;)

    Win7MasterOldSysprep and XPOld don’t work.



  • Linux.

    He’s asking about what’s in the /images directory.

    [CODE]ls -laR /images[/CODE]

    ls = lists files
    -l = lists permissions
    -a = lists hidden files
    -R = forces recursive listing of all sub directories

    /images is the default path for images.

    As you can see in my first picture whene I set the image to 7 I have this error, Fog trie to download [SIZE=16px][FONT=inherit][COLOR=#212121]the contents of the windows partition in a 105MB partition that does not exist on my source machine.[/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]

    [quote=“Tom Elliott, post: 46355, member: 7271”]To further our possibility of helping you can you print a directory listing of the images you’re having problems with?[/quote]

    You mean directly from Linux or from http Managment?



  • Whoops sorry, was just informed that “Partitions” is not a feature in 1.2.0.

    That’d be available in revisions only, at this point.



  • I have been setting my images up like this lately… I used to set them up a re-sizable. It works fine, and we don’t have mixed HDD sizes among models… but I just figured it was a good practice to use re-sizable. I also ALWAYS select “Everything” for partitions.

    I’ve tried but it don’t work at all this way, I have to set to Other

    If it’s a windows 7 Image, make sure Operating System is set to Windows 7.
