@lcsmd Thank you for reporting back on how to get it working. When adding it to the wiki I figured out it uses the “ASIX AX88179” chip and we had some of the Startech devices listed in the “Notes” column already. So I added your USB31000SPTB to that list as well to be found by others - including the hint to use a different iPXE binary.
I have to say the list is not really up to date. Mainly the notes are not because it’s a lot of work to keep it up with information from forum posts only. Nor do we have time and resources to test all the hardware ourselves.
@vtl.victor I am not saying it’s impossible to do. It just needs work and we don’t seem to find the time to work on this. Your quickest way to achieve what you want is capture/deploy an image at your FOG network site. Don’t let the deployed host boot into the OS (add kernel parameter shutdown=1 to that host). Then boot that same host up with Clonezilla (for example) and for taking a backup that can be deployed at an offline site on USB - no FOG server needed there - just the Clonezilla boot media and image on portable drive. (cross references: 1, 2, 3)
FOG image capture and deploy are multi-step processes. each are several commands that rely on scripts and programs in the FOG OS (FOS) and change based on what options you have selected. FOG images are not designed to be used stand alone. Using FOG images without a FOG server will require steps that were expected to be automated and there really isn’t a quick way around it.
So if you or anyone else is keen, you want to start looking at the commands to do this here:
