@LuisTemporal What kind of failures do you think might occur? Can’t promise you FOG will work with each and every hardware out there but as we rely on the Linux kernel as a basis the list of supported hardware is immense. It’s up to you though. FOG is open source and you can ask for help with specific hardware or even get your hands dirty and compile you own kernel with added drivers if needed.
We found that we had to fiddle with a good many settings in the bios including UEFI boot path security and a few others. Even then the only way we can get to it is by doing “F12” and manually choosing PXE Boot which is very strange. It works after that however. This can be closed out.
@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.
