"Error trying to restore GPT partition tables"


  • Developer

    git 4290

    Issue occurred during download at step “restoring partition tables (GPT)…”

    Error: “Error trying to restore GPT partition tables”

    Checked gdisk /dev/sda but no partitions present due to the FOG script clearing them. Tried a “Quick wipe” and “Full wipe” tasks but still no go.

    Went into gdisk again to see if I could create an MBR correctly and it did succeed.

    I thought that it maybe the drive so I threw this drive into a confirmed working host. The new host download the image on to the HDD without issue.

    Looking into BIOS updates or bad RAM for the issue. Will report back with full solution.

    Just thought I would report just incase anyone else had the issue.

    I’ve had this issue on both Dell 7010s and on some older Lenovos. Every now and again I’ll find a machine that just won’t image.

    Sometimes, pulling the network cable and power cable and then hitting the power button a few times, then hooking everything back up will fix it. :-/ It’s just strange.

    WORKED for my one Dell E6400. Very odd. That trick is used for clearing corrupt RAM and I did a swap so it doesn’t exactly make sense. Whatever…it works now.

    Still working on the D630 image will be done with it shortly.

    I installed windows on a D630 and then straight uploaded it.

    This “new” image with no programs installed or anything work on 2 of the D630’s. Continuing to install all needed software on the “new” image and then will reupload again and test on those 12 troubled laptops.

    BIOS update did not fix issue.
    RAM change did not fix issue.

    I believe you already confirmed this but if you would present your findings appropriately.
