Windows 10 - after upload - partition erased
Here are the steps I took…
- After the upload
I booted back to my win10 flash drive and saw this…
So it must have deleted everything? I then went and quick-imaged it with the image I just uploaded and it went back through, but when it started to boot it said…
“The Boot Configuration Data for your PC is missing or contains errors.”
- I went back in and saw…
3)I went to advanced options, cmd prompt with my win10 flash drive and ran, bootrec /rebuildbcd and hit Y to accept it. Restarted and it booted back up.
Any ideas why it’s deleted my image after upload, then after quick imaging, the BCD isn’t working?
Thanks for your help!
@GFm I’m going to solve this post then. THanks for the patience and understanding.
FYI - I updated to the latest SVN 4728 and tried uploading… it worked! I did a quick image after, and that worked too! I saw the update on…
I did only use undionley.kpxe for my bootfile and not ipxe.efi as mentioned in the post, and it worked.
@GFm I’m not at a computer that would suffice for trouble shooting. What time zone are you? I’m eastern standard. I’m hoping to maybe connect with you tomorrow morning my time? Of course when ever you can.
I’m willing to try some things out. Any suggestions?
However, before changing the partition layout type, I’d rather figure out why uploads are clearing the partition table out. I’m not seeing the same problem on linux GPT so maybe I missed something very simple?
@GFm Uefi does have benefits, but they’re really only seen (as far as I’ve been able to tell) on Spinner disks. When it comes to SSD’s they blaze through everything so quickly, any improvement between UEFI vs. BIOS is minimally noticed.
Just in case it’s unclear, I am doing uefi booting. Is there a real benefit to use this over legacy? If not, according to the other post referenced, it looks like legacy works just fine. I know I’ve been using legacy for all my other images (Windows 7)
I believe this is the same problem here: https://forums.fogproject.org/topic/6535/windows-10-capture-deploy-woes/4
My attempt was with Windows 8.1
The only thing I can think of is it failed to bring back the original partitions?
I’m not seeing the same issue on my GPT system, but I’m also doing Linux, not Windows 10.
I might have the same issue as this.
This morning, I tried uploading a resizable GPT image, and it appeared to upload ( I think ), but now the source host will not boot.
I don’t have time at the moment to mess with it too much though.
