Brand new and 1st time using. Goal swap out 1tb drive for a 250gb ssd.
Win 10 Acer laptop with 1TB HD, installed client and ran backup
Backup Image status: OK (checked the backup directory it as 3 files "sysvol, esp, _c) for a total of 33.6gb
Swapped out 1tb drive and installed 256gb ssd
Created USB reinstall stick (2.3.1), ran through prompts finding the computer name, date and volume of restore, and choose the SSD to restore
Get an error that basically keeps scrolling options for partition.
Warning! One or more CRCs Don’t match. You should repair the disk!
MBR: protective, BSD: not present, APM: Not present, GPT: damaged
Error says: "Caution: Found protective or hybrid MBR and corrupt GPT. Using GPT, but disk verification and recovery are strongly recommended.
Steps I’ve tried:
- In the scrolling list of options I’ve pressed “v” to verify, in fact I’ve tried pressing almost all the letters and it doesn’t accept the input.
- ctrl + Alt + 2 to then ran sudo fdisk /dev/sda which gives an error “primary GPT table is corrupt, but the backups appears OK, so that will be used”
2a) I press v and get a “No errors detected”
2b) press M to enter protective/hybrid MBR, then V (to verify) and get a “Total allocated sectors greater than the maximum”
2c) deleted partition
Tried running restore again…no luck
How do I get this restore to work onto the smaller drive?
