Surface pro 4 gets stuck on init.xz (still)


  • Testers

    I am out of the office on medical leave, but my colleague messaged me that he is unable to deploy to a surface pro 4 once again. It goes through the fog boot menu just fine, but hangs on init.xz. He has tried updating to the latest RC 13 with all of the latest ipxe files. I remember there were issues with the ipxe files and pro 4’s but he told me that the latest were supposed to fix this as mentioned in another post here.

    He ended up building from scratch on the Surface due to time constraints and I am not there to actively troubleshoot it unfortunately. Just wanted to let you guys know.

    @fry_p What caused it to be unable to image a Surface Pro 4? Has it ever worked at your location? When did it last work? What’s changed since then?

    Hey guys. I realize more info is needed. However we don’t have another surface to test with. I can tell you it has been a while since we have done a pro 4. We did do a pro 3 with the same conditions without issue last week. It has worked at our location before albeit very sporadically with no rhyme or reason it seems. I’d say it has been months since the last pro 4, so I have updated FOG since then. I’m sorry I don’t have more info. If we get another pro 4 any time soon and if I am back to work, we will test. I suppose we can file this away for now. Right now, we only get 4’s for warranty replacements as the new Surface Pro is out so they are few and far between.

    @fry_p Thanks for letting us know. We need more information - see Wayne’s questions - and someone from your work place to talk to directly.
