Can fog deploy images to a single partition?



  • Can fog deploy images to a single partition? If so how?

    Currently, I am attempting to have my computer boot to iPXE then to my FOG server. However, whenever I deploy images to from my FOG server to my computer, the iPXE software gets wiped by my image. I do not have the option to add any physical storage drives to my computer and I also do not want to boot off my usb stick with iPXE every time I do to use my computer.

    May I ask why you have iPXE installed on disk at all? Usually this is send to the client on PXE boot on the fly and there is no need to have it on disk.

    Yes you can define an image in the web UI to capture/deploy only one single partition. The problem with this is that on the target machine you already need to have the correct partition layout set from an earlier deploy as we don’t touch that but simply deploy the contents of that one single partition set in the image definition.
