I’m hoping someone can help me with this problem.
I have a few HP Z210 workstations. These units use UEFI and the Windows installation creates 3 partitions- 100MB boot, 128MB MSR (system reserved), and the rest is standard NTFS.
I’m using multiple partition, single disk as the image type.
I can upload the image, and all three partitions get uploaded. I can then deploy the image and all three partitions get deployed.
The system will then fail to boot to Windows with a black screen that states:
Info: Boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.
Running fdisk from the fog debug menu shows only one partition on the disk.
It is of id: ee which is EFI GPT.
My other systems (non-HP Z210 and are working) are all id: 7 HPFS/NTFS and have the default two partitions for Windows 7 when I run fdisk.
I read that partition type of ee is not supported unless maybe I use Raw Image as the image type.
I would like to avoid this as the hard disk sizes are 320GB.
I’ve tried a variety of different partitioning schemes on this disk but, no matter what I do the disk is always listed as EFI GPT by fdisk after Windows is installed.
Has anyone else experienced something like this or know how to get around it?
Is this a limitation I should expect from other UEFI based systems?
This is my first experience with this problem but, I read that (U)EFI systems are becoming more popular.
I appreciate any help or ideas.
