    Clonezilla Error

    HI,
    We have just bought 5 machines. All have 40Gb disks in them. Done the first one and took an image. Managed to install the image onto another machine fine. When I try the others it says:

    the partition table in this disk is illegal/invalid : /dev/sdb
    does this partition table file fit this disk :/home/partimag/2010-02-01-14-img /sdb-pt.sf?
    is this disk too small : /dev/sdb?

    ERROR: cant have a partition outside the disk

    Any ideas ?

    THanks

    Sounds like the partition tables setup wrong. You changed them at all, or they all brand new?

    Also, When you say first one worked ok, did you reset things like raid arrays if you set that up? Bearing in mind can't just pull out + stick in new HDD then continue. (Assuming you're copying it over as a 2nd HDD in main machine?)

    If that made sense,

    Steve

    They are all 2nd hand machines so had something on before but have just arrived with us. Hard disks are blank now.
    There is no raid arrays - just one 40Gb SATA disk.
    I'm copying them via samba server from a share on the server.

    Ah, think I've got it. The one i've done the image from is 40014 MB but the one i'm doing it to is 40000.
    Just working out where to use the -c command to skip size checking

    Assuming they're not going to be identical HDDs then, Have you checked they're the same size? (Yes 40gb, but in terms of cylinders etc)

    If you run fdisk -l

    Can you post the table?

    Thanks. I'll get the table posted. If they are smaller I assuming I'll have to make the image again.

    You could just re-write the partition lines too, depending on how it's done. Remember it could be smaller than the drive actually is.

    Best check if that's the issue first :P Those tables should show if it's an issue.

    But if you want to read it now, it's fdisk command
