No boot with FOG and an HP 705 G4



  • Hi,
    We bought some new computers HP EliteDesk 705 G4 SFF, Ref Constr : 3AD02AV -Ref Four : UG3AD02AV and we want to boot them on LAN with a PXE server and a FOG server to deploy number of workstations. On this server we put our image Windows 10 ver 1809.
    The boot sequence is good at the start up with PXE and DHCP and the mac@ is recognized but in the second stage we get stuck with the following message : “No configuring methods succeeded”.
    We use this method to spread the same image on other stations and all is fully functional, except with this type of station HP 705 G4.
    So, if some one have ever had the same problem or have any idea to solve this trouble, you are well come.
    I put a screen shot to see exactly what it’s about.
    Thank you very much
    Alain

  • Hello
    it’s ok only with: ipxe.pxe, ipxe.kpxe, ipxe.kkpxe, realtek.pxe, realtek.kpxe and realtek.kkpxe.

    I will choose ipxe.kpxe because we also have computers on our network with Intel network cards.

    Thank you very much and happy new year 2020

    @geicos Yes, good point George brought up here. Try all the different ones, like undionly.kkpxe (note the double k), ipxe.pxe, ipxe.kpxe, intel.pxe and so on…

    @geicos OK lets try a different bootloader. The default (recommended) boot loader for bios mode is undionly.kpxe. This driver uses the build in undi driver built into most network cards. For this test use ipxe.kpxe boot loader. So change your dhcp option 67 value to ipxe.kpxe and then pxe boot this target computer. This boot loader is bigger because it contains all known network adapter drivers and not just the undi interface driver.



  • My version of fog is 1.5.7 and with unmanaged switch the problem is the same

    Thanks

    What version of FOG are you using?

    Do you have the ability to install (for testing) a dumb (read cheap) unmanaged switch between the pxe booting computer and the building network switch. This error might indicate a spanning tree issue or its a problem with the iPXE network driver. This computer looks like its in bios mode, can you confirm.
