Fog imaging and M.2 drives
We are running Fog 126.96.36.199 on Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS as a VM on Server 16.
Imaging works amazing with regular SATA SSD drives using the 4.15.2 Kernel. However, when imaging newer machines with an M.2/NVMe imaging drops the speed down from the normal 4-5GB/m to 1GB/m or less compared to imaging a machine with a SATA SSD. I’ve tried a newer kernels and they all hang at clearing the MBR/GPT table and go no farther.
Ill be monitoring for any other requests for information. Thanks in advance!
Machine specs are as follows.
Dell OptiPlex 7060

16GB DDR4 2666Mhz
Intel NIC (7) i219-LM

RE: "Can't unmount /ntfs: Invalid argument" on Deployment
Heads up, its not a fault on the image. It is a local workstation lock on the hard drive from a computer being on standby or hibernate mode. Restart the computer and let it shut down properly. If the OS is wiped and isnt booting anymore… load up the windows 7 install dvd, go through the options to set up windows as a new installation. Delete any random partitions and hit next . When you see the install screen doing its thing, cancel it by hitting the red x and shutdown. Now try to deploy the image again and it should work now.
