Error: Trying to make GPT based image from BIOS machine

I am attempting to pull an image from a new machine up to my server, but I keep getting the following error: "Trying to make GPT based image from BIOS machine" I have done a web search on this error message, and all the information that I get is that I have to change the workstation BIOS to Legacy from UEFI in order for this to work. I have done this, and I still get the same message.

Running Zenworks 11.4.2, and the machine is an HP Envy with a 2 TB drive.

If you need any other information, please ask.

Thank you.
Bill

Re: Error: Trying to make GPT based image from BIOS machine

Are you on 11.4.2 with the latest imaging update? That is a newer SLES. Can you try an imaging boot CD from before the imaging update, and see if it works? Did it work before the upgrade? I had an issue with one NIC working before but not after the latest imaging update.

Re: Error: Trying to make GPT based image from BIOS machine

I am on 11.4.2, and I did try with a imaging boot CD (actually a USB boot), and it still did not work. I tried different updates, just to see, and it does not work. This is a brand new machine, so I did not have the chance to try it before the latest update. From what I can tell, the imaging updates do not contain the profiles for this machine, so I need to investigate other means of imaging.

Re: Error: Trying to make GPT based image from BIOS machine

Hi Bill, I'm getting the same error message that you have trying to create a new ZENworks image. Have you find a way to fix this? On my side I'm working with an old Lenovo ThinkStation S30. I know that the drivers are already working correctly since I can restore correctly an image to it. I just can't create a new image. I'm on 11.4.2 with the latest drivers installed.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Re: Error: Trying to make GPT based image from BIOS machine

Got the same Problem with a HP Eltibook 840 G3, GPT and Windows 10. Cannot upload an Image to the Server.
Bios has no possibilitie to choose between UEFI and Legacy and still boot to PXE.
