Touch Dynamic Tablet Suck on bzIimage32



  • Greetings,
    This is my first time posting here. I am new to FOG and the person who set this up is no longer involved with the project.
    We have updated our FOG server to 1.5.7 and we are having an issue that we had before with imaging Touch Dynamic tablets. It is hanging bzImage32. See screenshot.
    Here is the link to solved forum Post from last year. I am not sure if this helps. The tablet is the same.

    Let me know if you need any more info.
    Thank you for help!

    @Ray_RDS You can download them with your windows computer. Then you will need to use WinSCP if you are command line challenged or pscp (from putty) to copy the files to the FOG server placing them in the directories provided by Sebastian. The next thing you will need to do is update your dhcp server option 67 to request the new file name.

    Thank you for info. I won’t be able to update this until next week.
    Can you please provide the instructions how to download the new files?

    Thank you!

    @Ray_RDS Might be a network driver issue in iPXE and it’s probably very hard to fix. I am saying this because in normal operation you would see it loading init_32.xz after the kernel (bzImage32). But it’s more or less a guess from what I have seen so far and not based on knowledge about this particular hardware.

    How do you know this is the exact same tablet as discussed in the other topic?? If it really is, do you also use the same USB network adapter - ASIX AX88179 USB 3.0?? You need to know that those kind of issues are very specific to hardware (combination of tablet and network adapter) as well as software (firmware version)!

    I read through the whole topic again and the main thing that helped the other person was using a different iPXE binary to start with. I just compiled and added those to the official FOG project repository - download 32 bit and 64 bit and put those in /tftpboot/i386-efi/ (and /tftpboot/) on your FOG server. Then change your DHCP options for the tablet to use this binary and see if it makes a difference.
