Unable to upload a Windows 7 image from a SSD

  • Hi there!

    I kinda need some help or good advices about the issue I’m facing to for 3-4 days, now… Here it is:
    I installed a Windows 7 (tried both 32 and 64bits) on a SSD (I tried on a Kingston SSDNow 200 and on a OCZ Agility 3), with the 100Mb partition and the second partition using the rest of the disc. The installation is fine, but then, when I want to upload this image with Fog .32, I always get the message saying that it’s unable to move folder from Dev to the specified one, and if I check what is in the folder mac_adress in Dev one, I have only the file “d1.mbr”.

    The image I try to upload is, on Fog, set as Multiple partitions image - Single disk.

    I guess something’s wrong with the SSD, as I tried to upload an image from a HDD (the rest of the configuration is exactly the same one, so same mac, same motherboard, and so on), and then, I can manage to upload it.

    So far, I tried to put SATA settings in Bios on AHCI, IDE, Disabled and at each time, it’s the same message displayed.
    I used MBRWizard as well, to wipe the MBR and then do a new install of Windows 7, but the result is still the same.

    I’m now out of new ideas to solve my problem, so if one of you could please help me, it will be really kind of you.

    Thank you all in advance.

    If you do try the .33 beta please provide feedback on your experience/thoughts to the thread above

  • Myke:

    I’ve been using the .33 beta to install 4k drives for several weeks. The latest trunk will let you do the image upload/download, so give it a try if you just need to get the task done. Otherwise you’ll need to wait a while until the developers finish up with all the code. They are pretty busy, but a lot of progress has been made in the last 30 days.

    If you decide to give the beta a try, I’d recommend that you set up a spare pc so you don’t destroy your current fog server. You have a couple of options is you decide to try it. Easiest would be to do a clean install of Fog .33. Of course, if you want to try to migrate your db over, you could always install .32 on the spare machine, backup the db and set it up, then upgrade to .33. That would also give the developers another data point for bug testing. You can read about .33 and post your results here:

    If you need help, just let us know.

  • SSD’s use 4K sector format drives I believe. I think .033 includes 4k support for SSDS and other large format drives.
