If you're attempting to create an image from an HP DC5700 you may receive errors if you have not repartitioned the hard drive. HP ship these machines with a hidden restore partition in front of the main NTFS partition. As the hidden partition is not a NTFS partition FOG will give an error when attempting to read it.

  1. Remove all partitions on the computer using your favourite partitioning utility, such as fdisk or Partition Magic
  2. Create a standard primary NTFS partition and install Windows
  3. Set up your Windows installation as required
  4. Use FOG to create your image
