Dell Optiplex 7460 compatibility

  • Has anyone recieved one of the new Dell Optiplex 7460 AIO computers and been able to boot to FOG? I am getting an issue failing to get an IP via DHCP. I know we are behind in versions, we are on 1.3.5. I’m assuming that our kernel is too old for the new chipset that Intel is using.

    The kernel has nothing to do with initial iPXE boot though, the iPXE binaries are only updated through updating all of FOG.

    If you see an issue when creating the disk partitions, where it takes 3-5 minutes just to create the partitions, drop your kernel back to 4.15.2 and see if that both boots the 7460 as well as creates the disk partitions like normal.

  • I just updated the kernel to 4.17.0 and it is working great now… actually seems like iPXE is much faster.
