Upload Task Error: "no resizable partitions found"



  • Hello,

    I installed Fog in a virtual ubuntu 64 bit 14.04 LTS with virtual box. I configured an internal network with a switch (between the virtual box ubuntu and the windows host is a network bridge). However, I could start the boot menu of Fog wih a Client PC with Windows 8.1 and I could register the client (in Fog its called “host”) in the Fog database. I prepared the Windows 8.1 image in image management and I started the upload task.

    With the following start, the Fog server tried to get the image… but an error was shown: “no resizable partitions found”. I tried to change the configuration of the image partition in image management. After that the client reacted with stopping the process without any error message. I can not find any information about the error message. Do you have experience with that? Do you know a solution?

    Thank you very much!



  • @Tom-Elliott Very good!! That was the solution! Thanks.

    @gooroox The RAW mode is slow because it’s save all the disk (empty space too).

    The stopping tells me, nearly 95% sure, that there ARE gpt structures left on the disk.

    If you can create the tasking you need as a debug task (Host->Basic Tasks->Advanced Tasks->(Upload/Download) - Debug

    It should boot your client machine into a console/tty screen (Command prompt if you must).

    When there, type:

    fixparts /dev/sda

    Confirm the information as you see fit, and write the data. I think it will ask you to confirm (type Y, then you need to write the changes to the disk by typing w, then confirming the changes)

    Once back at the command prompt, type the command fog

    The system should start uploading its image to the server.

    Another admin made the Windows installation. I can not ask him in the moment. I used diskpart to check for MBR or GPT. It is MBR. Maybe there are really some GPT structures. How could I see it and change it?

    I tested some image updates with other image types like multiple… single disk and multiple… all disk. The screen of the client pc just stopped:

    After that I tried the raw image type number 4. It works!! The client started to upload the image. But it´s too slow…

    It´s version 1.2.0

    As you installed Windows 8.1, was this a default installation? Did you adjust the partitions to be MBR rather than GPT? Can you post a screenshot of what happens when you try to collect the image using a Non-resizable image format?

    My guess is your HDD was setup in MBR layout, but it still contains GPT layout structures on it. FOG Can’t collect the image because at this point it knows next to nothing about your drive.

    What version of FOG are you using? It will display in the Cloud Logo at the top left of the GUI.
