Unable to download images after upload



  • Hi all,
    I have a problem after uploading a new image, the upload itself went fine. No errors are reported. However I am unable to download the images to my clients. See the attachments.
    The 2nd partition is working without any problems, but my partition table seems corrupt.

    I have tried different revisions, the trunk however has a lot of problems.

    This is a screenshot how the image is configured:

    Who is able to assist me with this problem?

    Thanks in advance.

    @Wayne-Workman Hi Wayne,

    It seems that the problem is resolved now. The problem appeared to be in the image upload with this 102 MB partition. I’ve booted a gparted iso from CD and removed this partition, then I booted a Windows 7 DVD to recover the drive as it didn’t want to boot with this 102 MB partition.

    I totally agree with your remark about the vulnerabilities provided by the manufacturer’s image, but I’ve been completely striping that out.

    Besides, I cannot use an OEM license key when I install Windows myself. For this reason I’m stuck with this image. I need to buy retailer CD key’s instead for about 60 machines.

    Thank you very much for your help though, if others have simular problems with OEM images provided by manufacturer’s, I might be able to help them.

    You can install Windows 7 from scratch with OEM licence using ISO provided by Digital River, backed Windows Key/Certificate on an OEM installation with abr (http://directedge.us/files/abr/ABR-1.0.exe) and restored it on your fresh install. Upload/Deploy/Enjoy

    @kverkiss I don’t know what to say… you’re using FOG Trunk… things change… kinks are getting worked out all the time.

    I would never advise someone to use a manufacturer image anyways because of how bloated the images are, and zero-day vulnerabilities like this: http://www.cnet.com/news/superfish-torments-lenovo-owners-with-more-than-adware/
    If you’re at all concerned about the security and integrity of your user’s data and happenings, you’d build an image from scratch. But also at the same time, FOG should be able to image with the manufacturer’s image should someone want to do that.

    If you’re willing and able, you could upload a copy of your problem image to somewhere like Mega.nz and share it with Tom so he can take a look and see what can be done.



  • Ok, but I was able to upload and download images in the past. I am still able to restore the old image files.

    There’s your problem.

    Make your own image from scratch and it’ll work fine.

    This is why I asked if your image was from the manufacturer or made from scratch earlier.



  • @Tom-S Doesn’t this have to do with the reserved partition windows makes? This image was provided by the manufacturer Lenovo.

    @Tom Elliot: Also the mbr looks to be 102M in size?? That looks concerning…



  • Hi Wayne,

    Currently I am using rev 3600. Fogserver has indeed been working with this model. I haven’t tried the undionly.kkpxe file yet as I was able to download the old images. However while creating a new image I can no longer download it. I did increase the C drive with a few GB’s, will this matter for my images if my old images have a few GB’s less for the windows drive?

    I will try the kkpxe file soon, currently I am making an image with the dd (RAW) command, see if this resolves any partition problems.

    @kverkiss why is the start sector so far off the start of the disk? I mean it’s a single partition starting at a sector even further than a normal start sector of the second partition of a default OS install

    @kverkiss What revision of FOG are you currently on? Has FOG ever worked with this model (Lenovo Thinkcenter 3484L4G) ?

    We do not have this model listed in our Working Hardware or Problematic hardware list so it’s currently an unknown till you shed some light on it.

    I’ve found that pretty much every Lenovo in my building requires undionly.kkpxe as the boot file, have you tried this?

    Is this image a “From Scratch” image, or is it based on the manufacturer’s image?



  • Some more attachments,
    Fdisk -l from where the image was uploaded from:
