Solved Unable to deploy Image

@george1421 1.What version of FOG? 1.4.4 – it has not been updated as its on an isolated network not connected to the internet. However, I can and probably should update as it’s behind
2.Is the target computer in uefi or bios mode? It is using UEFI
3.Does this computer have a built in ethernet adapter or are you using a usb to ethernet dongle? Built in Ethernet.
4.From a windows computer, if you look in device manager on a this model computer. For the network adapter what is the hardware ID? I need the vendor and model codes. This is a Lenovo T480 Laptop. Network adapter model I’m seeing is ‘Intel Ethernet Connection (4) l219-V.
What is frustrating is we already have a T480 image. This is just an altered image. We also use Lenovo M810z All in ones. Same situation, we have an image already but trying to upload a different image we continue to get the no valid data. It’s sucking down the space on the HD. The image we have for the T480 is 100gb… so, it’s taking 100gb of data off the drive, but its as if fog is like nah, we can’t see it.
Also - no errors during capture.
Finally, when running ls -la /images/dev I get

@bartont126 You are not seeing any errors during image capture?
From the fog server’s linux console do you have any directories in /images/dev that have a folder name that resembles network mac addresses?
ls -la /images/dev?
You still haven’t answered my questions, especially what version of FOG are you using?

So i’m not really sure what’s going on now. It finally took an image. But now it’s stating ‘no valid data’ on the fog interface. What’s super annoying is we have several images of this same mode. Also - What’s happening is i’m watching the size of the hard drive (on the server) go down in size. It says it’s captured 110gb, but its ‘not valid data’. So when I try to use that particular image it says unable to find image.

Ok lets start out with some basics.
- What version of FOG?
- Is the target computer in uefi or bios mode?
- Does this computer have a built in ethernet adapter or are you using a usb to ethernet dongle?
- From a windows computer, if you look in device manager on a this model computer. For the network adapter what is the hardware ID? I need the vendor and model codes.
Something to try.
- Manually register this computer with FOG by creating a host definition by hand in the web ui.
- Schedule a capture or deploy (don’t care) but before you hit the schedule task button, tick the debug checkbox. Then schedule the task.
- PXE boot the target computer, after a few screens of text where you need to press enter to clear you will be dropped at the FOS linux command prompt.
- Key in
ip addr showI’m interested in what eth0 has configured. A picture will do.
- If eth0 has no IP address then key in
lspci -nn|grep -i net. Post a picture of that.
