Upload Hangs "Saving original disk/parts UUIDs"
Recently tried upload an image on a PC we have done a ton of times before. Now its hanging on “Saving original disk/parts UUIDs”. Just sits there. Suggestions?
@Scott-B This normally happens when there are gpt remnants left on the disk. This is caused by the Windows installer doing a very poor job - when a HDD previously had a GPT layout and is then changed to a MBR layout (normally by switching from uEFI to BIOS).
Normally, this can be fixed by doing a debug upload - and running the fixparts command against the disk. In this particular case, the disk’s device is /dev/sda so the command would be
fixparts /dev/sdaAfter running this command, follow onscreen instructions from fixparts, it’ll inform you what’s going on and have an option to fix it and write changes.
