UEFI boot from pxe



  • I got a new Dell Latitude laptop and cannot change the setting to legacy as its using an 8th gen cpu. So I need to create an image for UEFI too 😕

    I already had the option of 066/067 configured on my dc and was working fine for legacy option however for UEFI its displaying so I added the ipxe.efi

    With the above settings I am getting the below and then continues to boot to OS

  • Managed to get it to work however got stuck on another issue.

    After deployment I am encountering another issue after joining the computer to domain windows update is coming up blank and when clicking on start button and start typing nothing comes up (using the built in administrator everything works fine)

    On the legacy image I managed to fix it by using the setupcomplete.cmd (%WINDIR%\Setup\Scripts\SetupComplete.cmd) however this being a Dell laptop with OEM license it seems that this does not work

    REM "C:\Windows\Setup\Scripts\SetupComplete.cmd is executed as final step of coming out of Sysprep under SYSTEM account"
    REM "Clean up problems caused by using COPYPROFILE=TRUE"
    rd /s /q "C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WebCache"
    rd /s /q "C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache"
    del /f /q /a:sh "C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WebCacheLock.dat"
    
    rd /s /q "C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WebCache"
    rd /s /q "C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache"
    del /f /q /a:sh "C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WebCacheLock.dat"
    
    sc config FOGService start= auto
    shutdown -t 0 -r```

    @dijsil So do you still have an issue or is it all working now?



  • Managed to get past that error sorry forgot to post as I was dealing with another issue.

    If anyone encounter this issue go to bios and change sata operation from Raid on to AHCI and should work.

    @dijsil In the above DHCP settings screenshot you have ipxe.efi as “066 Boot Server Host Name” while it should really be 192.168.0.58 I suppose.

    I guess you know our wiki article: https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=BIOS_and_UEFI_Co-Existence
