Surface Pro 4 stuck on init.xz... ok
FOG Version: 1.5.4
bzImage Version: 4.17.0
bzImage32 Version: 4.16.6
Just update to latest SVN to get around the addition mac issue. After updating Surface Pro 4 tablets are getting stuck on init.xz. I worked with @Sebastian-Roth before on this and was using a beta efi file which of course I don’t have now that I updated. Any way to get around this or change the file to work with Surface Pro 4? I have snapshotted my fog server so I can roll back and get the file just wasn’t sure if there was a copy out there somewhere that works with the Surface Pro 4.
@psycholiquid I was able to resolve the refinduefi issue with the HP ProDesk 400s by pulling the old refind.conf file from the backup fog server and reverting refind.efi to version 0.11.0
Ok replaced the refind.efi with the latest 0.11.3 and made a change to the conf file and it is all owrking now.
Good job on fixing the dock issue with Surfaces, I can now image without using a seperate dongle.
So here is the steps I used to fix the issue:
- upgraded to 1.5.4
- Replaced bzimage and init.xz using kernel 4.15.2 and init.xz form my old version of FOG (@Sebastian-Roth custom)
- Replaced refind.efi with verion 0.11.3 and edited out the scanfor line of the conf.
This seemed to get everything straight. So I think we are good.
@sebastian-roth But I am using kernel 15.12 and it seems to be working all but the refind UEFI
@Sebastian-Roth I recovered both, figured the init.xz is only the virtual HDD right and the bzimage is the actually loading OS.
@Sebastian-Roth yeah I got it working after updating the firmware to the latest version, it will boot and image but the refind-EFI is giving me troubles now. trying to find a way around it, GRUB doesn’t seem to work nor Does exit.
Ill post up the configuration and firmware versions once completed so everyone will know how to do it
@Psycholiquid Did you recover only the kernel (bzImage/bzImage32) or initrds (init.xz/init_32.xz) as well?
I have tried updating the Surface firmware but so far no dice. Trying another update this morning
@sebastian-roth I was able to recover but it crashed on Fatal Error kernel to old
Resolved by dropping the kernel back down to 4.12.3.
This allows the Surface to make it past the init.xz… ok
Now stuck on Fatal kernel to old.
Will play with them more to see what I can get.
