We have just recently made the jump from Version 29 -> Version.1.2.0 in FOG, and are having some inconsistent issues - failures to image - with our new images.
We did the suggested method of going through V.32 before jumping to V.1.X.X
Changed the 67 Option in DHCP
We lost one image - not a large deal, it was not that important to us - but now we’re skeptical to updating anymore.
However, I have tested about three images so far, all of which is on one model computer - Dell D620 - and two out of three have given the same fatal error of not working.
Let me try to explain what is going on:
Download an image from our old images (partImage)
It works! Time to update the image
Image is updated and now we shall upload the file to our server
Now we shall test it by downloading the file to another computer (partClone)
Now, after it is downloaded, it will cycle through boot sequence and into Startup Repair
That is all it will do. Normally when this happens you get a menu that asks whether you want to Perform Startup Repair or Start Normally - that screen never appears; nor does Advanced Menu - F8 will not boot into the menu, ever.
It just turns the computer on, and goes through screens similar to if you were to install Windows from scratch. (Little “Windows is Loading Files” white bar at the bottom, then another load screen, then Startup Repair)
Normally that is what it would do if it was a defective hard drive that was receiving the image, or a bad kernel - at least that is what we experienced in the past.
However, the inconsistency starts when we did manage to get one image to work. We downloaded, updated, uploaded, downloaded to testers, and then they worked without a single issue - same model computer, D620.
They are the exact same computers, taking similar images, with the exact same FOG kernel, and act like they are only taking the images when they feel like it. We even tried updating and re-uploading the image that wound up working, and it immediately stopped working upon the very next download. BIOS does not seem to have an effect on it either, because we have some that are running AO2 (yes, I know that we need to upgrade them. Badly.) or AO8, AO10, etcetera.
