Failed to mount '/dev/sda1': input/output eror

  • Hello there,
    I’ve been trying to reimage one of our rooms yesterday evening. I looks like the image deploy task fails after 2% and the machines restart. The error I get:

    $MFTMirr does not match $MFT (record 0).

  • Are other machines getting their images OK?
    Have you tried rebooting the server?
    Do you have a storage node set up?

  • Unfortunately the results were the same… I have imaged these machine in the past a few times, never ever had any problems with them. Also I have tried to deploy a different image to these machines and had the same result so I don’t think the image itself has become corrupt.
    As a different imaging solution I use Symantec Ghost, and I had to use it yesterday to get the machines reimaged. However I would like to stick to Fog as it’s soo much easier to use and I get better transfer speed with FOG.

  • I assume the results were the same?
    Have you ikmaged these machines in the past with no problems?
    I have had some machines that upload the image to the server no problem, but when it comes to deploying the image it fails.
    In this situation I re-create an image using True Image & then use True Image to deploy it. More work, but gets over the issue.

  • I’ve tried deploying another image to the same machine. Also I’ve tried the same image onto another type of the machine

  • Are you sure that the FOG image is OK & has not become corrupt?

  • All of the machines

  • Is this error on one machine or all machines?
    I had an error like this & found that the HDD on the client machine had gone faulty.
