GRUB issues/Reboot loop



  • Hello,

    I have been trying for some time now to get FOG to copy an image of Ubuntu or Debian over the other one. I can deploy an image of the same OS to itself with no problem. When I try to write Ubuntu over the Debian install, or Debian over the Ubuntu, then it says “Grub Loading.” (on Debian) or just gets stuck in a reboot loop.

    I guessed some MBR data may be left over, so I tried to do a quick wipe, then deploy Debian again, and it simply does the “Grub Loading.” again, but this time also gets stuck in a reboot loop.

    I am pretty sure there is a GRUB issue here, because I can deploy to the same setup, just not when I change it.

    Do you have any suggestions? Or do I need to make any alterations to GRUB or such before I upload the images?

    Thanks for your assistance,
    Marcus.



  • Hello every body,
    Sorry for my english, i come from Marseille (France)
    I’ve got the same problem. After pushing the image to the corresponding host, the host is starting, boot on the pxe, i see all information about the computer and then, restart…

    It do that on a dell latitude 5500. I would like to do unicast. I’m trying to download Windows 7 x86.

    I’m using ubuntu 14.04 Fresh install 4 days, fog server 1.2.0

    Any idea?

    Thanks



  • Using grub-legacy solve my problem, thx Fernando.

    I’ve just use this live cd :

    [url]http://sourceforge.net/projects/boot-repair-cd/[/url]

    With this options : remove grub2 and install grub legacy.

    All works fine, reboot, up new image, and down on all our PC.



  • I will try the grub-legacy instead of grub2 option, it was the next i have to do.

    i’ll tell you results.

    If i repair the mbr with an boot repair live cd, pc works fine.

    But i have too many pc to deploy …

    I still investigating this forum to find solutions.
