@sebastian-roth I’d like to join this chain since I’m running into these issues with the 7320s. As the previous models we’ve used had legacy boot, I believe I’ll need to configure the DHCP server to provide iPXE binaries. Is there a how-to you can recommend for this process?
@george1421 Yeah, it seems it was the drivers for the ethernet port itself that needed to be updated. So weird. You’d think that would have been tested before the device was even shipped out, too, but evidently not… It really is an odd one.
Thanks for sticking it out with us! The help is much appreciated.
First: DELL Optiplex 7080 works very well with FOG Version 5.10.34
Great to here! I should have some o7090s in the next few days (weeks) so those should work too. I don’t know why the integrated kernel update program did not work for you, but I’m glad you have it worked out.
I was getting similar myself with the ipxe Rom hanging at “iPXE initializing devices”. The solution was to build a fresh undionly.kpxe (https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/IPXE#Compile).
Before you bake, modify general.h to comment out or remove the following lines:
Then compile, and copy the rom to your tftp folder.
@bristow-0 OK I can say I’ve never heard of an “LDLC Aurore” computer before. It must be a local French brand. If you want to pxe boot then you will need to get a usb network adapter that LDLC computer’s support.
This is Clevo. The good thing is that they provide PCs without OS.
@sgtrice If your 7080 firmware/bios disk controller is in raid-on mode, you need to switch to ahci mode. Intel has not (even after 6 years) release the raid controller driver to the linux community. If you have only one drive and not using raid you can leave the disk mode as ahci with no loss of performance.
@thanhpn7188 I think it’s good you posted this in a new topic because it sounds like you have an issue with this hardware and we might try to help you to make it work. The other topic you posted is about hardware that does work fine with FOG.
Hint: I also renamed this topic to reflect what this seems to be about.
Now to the issue: FOG doesn’t see the disk? Often this is caused by BIOS/UEFI setting for the disk controller is RAID instead of AHCI. Be aware that this change will influence the Windows OS if it’s installed already.
