New Dell Intel 10 series laptop imaging issues



  • These boards do not support legacy boot modes.

    I set up our DHCP to boot into fog via ipxe and it seems to do the imaging fine. each dell pc freezes at the bios screen. sometimes I can get it to boot into clonezilla to do my backup solution for imaging.

    Any clue what could be causing this? Is it my image?

    Dell inspiron 3493

    @tech49 Let’s try to break this down to what is actually causing this. Is the image resizable or non-resizable? What size is the source disk and what size the destination?

    If destination is same size or larger I might suggest you try capturing a RAW image and deploy this just for testing.



  • The deployed image is crashing to the point I cannot even get into dell bios unless i restart it 30 times and get lucky.

    This does not happen when using the same image (Captured with) on clonezilla.

    Its not clear in your OP is the target computer booting into the FOG iPXE menu or not? Or is your deployed image crashing after FOG is done with imaging?
