Need help with Fog Boot Menu

  • Hello,

    We’ve had Fog .32 working under Ubuntu for over a year. The problem is, it’s been so long since we set it up, and it’s run so well, that we can’t remember how to make the Fog boot menu appear when the machine boots up. The only options we get right now are either Boot from network or Boot from HDD. We’re getting new machines next month and need to be able to quick register them. Is this a setting somewhere in the Fog dashboard or is it something that is set in the pxelinux.cfg/default file? Or something entirely different?

    If someone could point me in the right direction I’d be extremely appreciative.

  • You have to boot from network using PXE. Usually you can press F12, while the machine boots up. Then you see the FOG menu. You might have the timeout set to 3 seconds or so. Log into the FOG webinterface > Other information > PXE boot menu. There you can increase the timeout.
