usb usb2-port2: cannot enable. Maybe the USB cable is bad?

  • I am working on a Latitude 5300 Laptop it has a NVMe SSD installed I am booting to the Dell USB 3.0 to Ethernet adapter with PXE boot to image these machines. The workstation will boot to the fog menu but when I try upload an image i get this after the bzimage and init.xz loads – “usb usb2-port2: cannot enable. Maybe the USB cable is bad?” If I unplug the usb and plug it back in it will stop and allow me to plug the usb back in once I do it works properly. attached is a screenshot after I have re-seated the usb nic. Any help to not have to do the “Re-seat” step would help me out a lot.

    I have tried adding the Kernel Args. usbcore.old_scheme_first=1 has_usb_nic=1 and it has not resolved the issue.


    I am running FOG Version 1.5.6 bzImage Version 4.19.36

    Secondly, if we could get the NVMe drive to be recognized using the SATA Mode “Raid on” instead of “AHCI” would help out as well.
