Probing devices to guess BIOS drives. This may take a while (GRUB)



  • I uploaded a new Ubuntu image onto my server and then I tried deploying it out (both onto new computers and old ones), I keep getting this error message and it exits me out of my active task. Not sure what settings do I toggle (This is after I finished removing the structure of the GPT partition with "sgdisk -Z /dev/sda"). It uploads successfully but deploys with errors.

    GRUB

    Please advise.



  • Sorry, lost track of this post, been getting a lot of inquiries lately. I would disable the update grub function. It's legacy and I don't think it really does anything anyway.
    Global->Imaging Scripts->Edit Core Scripts->Select cd_push from the drop down

    Search for [code]function update_grub()[/code]

    On the line before [code]log " ** Checking if grub is required ** "[/code]
    put [code]return 0[/code]

    Should look like
    [code]function update_grub()
    {
    return 0
    log " ** Checking If Grub Is Required ** "[/code]

    Click update



  • Got it to work! I also updated CloneDeploy 1.2.1 and that solved my Linux imaging issues
