I work at a school, and the teacher of our technology class made the image and asked me to clone it. Apparently Windows 10 automatically becomes default bootloader. So in my scenario, Windows 7 was on disk1, the teacher installed Windows 10 on disk2, Windows 10 detected the boot record and just modified it? I have no idea, I can't quite wrap my head around it.
To add to this, I got this working, not sure it should be working this way...but it is. I cloned the entire 2nd disk (/dev/sdb to /dev/sdb) I then cloned /dev/sd1a (which is the partition with the bootloader) to disk1 on the destination machine, and both Operating Systems now boot. It did not in fact wipe the entire drive. I know you said it should, and I believed it would, but it wasn't working anyway so I thought I'd try. Long story short, both drives are functioning properly. I guess I should add all the destination hard drives are set up the same way regarding partions.
I'd like to understand why, but at the same time I'm just glad it's working.
And if that is the case, can I only upload that one partition (/sda1), and deploy it to /sda1 on the other machines? Or will the entire /sda drive be erased in the process?
the original I did not set one. I thought for some reason because I only copied /sdb it would apply it to /sdb. That was my fault, I made the adjustment and that seemed to have worked. But that partition will not boot. On the original image, both Operating systems seem to boot from the system partition on the first hard drive. Is that normal? Will I need to copy that partition over as well?
Here is the log. Also, each Hard drive has it's own OS, but it seems the boot record for both are on the first hard drive? Does that make sense?
So I think this should be easy, but not sure what I'm missing. I have an image that I only uploaded the 2nd hard drive (/dev/sdb) now i have 20 other machines with the same hardware setup, and I want to deploy this image to the 2nd hard drive on each machine. What do I need to change in the image deploy options to make this happen? Would it be the destination? My first attempt it still deployed to /dev/sda, and I don't really want that to happen again lol.
I ran into this problem as well. Is there a way to recover the image that failed the upload? Took me quite a bit to create the image, hate to have to create it all over again. Thank you!
Quick question, not of high importance. I have a laptop on site here that gets stuck on "Looking for hard drive". The image i'm using works fine on every other laptop I have of the same model. The Hard drive is detected in BIOS. I'm about to send the computer back to HP but figured I'd stop here first to see if anyone has seen a similar problem? Maybe it's something stupid I'm just overlooking.
Worked like a charm....also, I didn't check the "update BCD" option and everything still worked fine.
I literally got it working 2 seconds after posting that. My brains junk today. Thanks, as always!
Do I still create a 3913 folder? If so what goes inside
