UNSOLVED Cannot Mount /Dev/SDA3 - Sysprep & Imaging Issue

  • Server
    • FOG Version: 1.3.4 Revision 6064
    • OS: Ubuntu 14.04
    • Service Version:
    • OS: Windows 10 64-Bit

    Hi all,

    I’m currently trying to upload a sysprepped image to the FOG server, but everytime I do, I receive the following error:

    The thing is, I’ve already run chkdsk /f before running sysprep - twice and rebooted the system twice each time. Then, I can’t load the OS at all - the system stays at a blank screen, as if it can’t read the hard drive correctly. But when simply running sysprep and not doing anything with FOG at all, the system will work (this is after re-imaging it with a non-sysprepped version of the image).

    Has anyone come across this before?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    @RobTitian16 Thank you for your reply.

    Did you build your Windows 10 image from scratch or are you using a modified version of the pre-installed os?

    You could try wiping the drive of all partitions, adding a blank one and imaging again. We have had trouble with partitions on the disk that were put there as a factory recovery point. (I know Dell, HP, etc are known for having a recovery partition).

    @RobTitian16 What is the hardware model you have?

    Is there anything special about the disk (NVMe) or sata?

  • @Jaymes-Driver No, I had data on it prior to imaging (it’s a laptop ordered from Dell so it had a preinstalled Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit OS).

    I’ll try it once more with sysprep, etc. and see how it goes.

    Is this by chance a new drive? Or did it have data on it prior to imaging?

    I’ve been away a minute, so please excuse this message if this is no longer an issue.

    In the past we have had issues pushing an image to a “blank” hard drive. We would resolve this issue by writing a partition to the volume then imaging.
