I noticed this and used a tool to take the extra USB partition away again from the image
I am not sure I get this. Which tool did you use to “take away” the USB partition? Do you mean you removed the partition from the USB key before actually uploading or after upload finished?
About the “doesn’t resize”… We need more information on this! Partition layout (
d1.partitions from the image directory) and so on.
I just used a tool outside of Windows to remove the inserted USB partition that had made it’s way onto the main image. By doing this I assume it has messed something up and that the partitions are not recalculated when I try to upload the image again because it seems to not shrink the image to the size of the data before upload or then resize it after deployment. Here is the d1.partitions file
/dev/sda1 : start= 2048, size= 1024000, type=7, bootable
/dev/sda2 : start= 1026048, size= 249043631, type=7
I noticed there is a d1.fixed_size_partitions file and I tried taking the :2 out of this, but this didn’t solve it.
