Xps15 Fail to deploy image - Ipxe / Uefi
I’ve changed on my dhcp server the options 67 to ipxe.efi
Only the Dell xps 15 fail to deploy, all other laptops work perfectly
I’m using a belkin and dell usb-c adapters and the kernel 5.1.16 Fog version 126.96.36.199
Installed also the dnsmasq, the service is up, but apparently during a boot use only the dhcp options from my router(peplink 780)
This error occur after boot and set deploy image, what can i do?

Sebastian, good point I skipped right over that. In this case that command is telling dnsmasq to bind to the loopback interface. So only DHCP DISCOVERS on the loopback interface would get a response. Probably not what the OP wants. While that’s not the issue in the picture it would be the cause of the other issues reported.
Why listen to localhost only?
You need to decide if you want your router to serve PXE booting information to your clients or if dnsmasq should be doing it. Using both might cause some trouble.
I guess a couple of questions to start off with.
- In regards to dnsmasq, is the fog server on the same IP subnet as your pxe booting computer? If they are on different subnets then you will need to add the fog server’s IP address as the last address in your vlan router’s dhcp-helper/relay service.
- What chipset is in that USB NIC? If you don’t know go into the windows device manager and pots here the hardware ID we’ll need the vendor and device IDs.
While its not as clean of an answer, if you were to manually register that target computer with the fog server. Then schedule a deploy task to that computer, but before you hit the schedule button, tick the debug check box. Now pxe boot the target computer. After a few screens of text on the target computer that you will need to clear with the enter key, you will be dropped to the FOS Linux command prompt. At the FOS Linux command prompt key in
lsusband post the results here (picture). That will give us the codes if FOS Linux sees the network adapter. I guess the output of this command would be handy too
