Help with image size
i'm just testing fog for my school and i am having a few issues. Fog is set up on Fedora 13 and is running fine. I have created my first host and i am just trying to upload my first image. We have a HP 625 laptop with windows 7 installed. All seems to be fine apart from the image size. It has a 250 GB HDD in the laptop and fog is trying to copy it all!! resulting in a 250GB image. Obviously i have missed a setting somewhere in my image set up, but i'm not sure what.
Can anyone possibly shed some light on where i need to look so that my image is only the size of the used data.
in the image settings, check what you have for the partition type. i think that may fix it.
in the image settings I always choose 'single partition (ntfs only, resizable)'
ahhh, found the problem. The techie that did the original windows install, didnt take out the hp recovery partition, or the hp tools partition! which means it is a multi partition image and so fog takes the whole disc!
i will make sure before i try and capture the next image that it is only a single partition.
