Can a Linux installation be captured as a single disk resizable?

I installed a Linux distro to use all disk space on a 134GB drive.
I’ve tried to capture it as a ‘single disk, resizable’, but FOG refuses with `no resizable partitions found’.
I’m capturing it right now as ‘Multiple partition, single disk, not resizable’.
Is ‘Single disk, resizable’ really ‘Single Disk, Single Partition, resizable’?
@Tom-Elliott CrucibleWDS has resizeable LVM working.
I’d love to get LVM resizable, HPFS, BTRFS, and all the other potentials, but I think that is too much for one person. If anybody has any ideas to script such a thing, and make it relatively commonized I’d appreciate the assistance.
@sudburr as Tom said, ext and ntfs.
When using Ubuntu 15 - don’t check the “use lvm partitioning”
When using Fedora 20/21/22 - choose the “standard partitioning” for all partitions.
Ah right. Good shot! Something else I would be interested to look into…
Fog can only do resizable with ext and ntfs partitions. Most Linux installs default the system as lvm though. While the main volume in the lvm may be ext, the actual fog detected volume or set of volumes reads as lvm and will typically fall into a raw style data copy if it can.
No, it really should be ‘Single disk, all partitions, resizable’. That said I know that there are some filesystems that FOG is not able to resize at the moment, namely btrfs. Which filesystems do you have on that disk?
