Snow screen with HP Elitebook 8460p



  • Hi Fog fans,
    We got Fog working well with all our desktops and older laptops. We are having an issue with new i7 laptops we are getting. They are HP EliteBooks 8460p. PXE loads the kernel but gives this output…

    Then the screen goes to snow. Similar issue in this [URL=‘http://sourceforge.net/projects/freeghost/forums/forum/730844/topic/4632692’]thread[/URL] from the old forum.

    I tried the Kitchen Sink kernel and that gets past the snow but it fails with Quick Host Registration, and snagging the image. I also tried the most recent kernel ‘Kernel-3.1-rc8.core’ and that gives me snow also.
    Seems to be a video/GPU issue?
    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Another option is to use one my kernels. They don’t have modeset enabled and should not cause this issue anymore:

    [url]https://mastacontrola.com/fogboot/kernel/bzImage[/url] (64bit) or [url]https://mastacontrola.com/fogboot/kernel/bzImage32[/url] (32 bit)



  • I found that removing the added video card, and using the on board video, the problem cleared. :-)



  • another trick, if it can helps : [url]http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-6743962.html[/url]



  • We are running fog .32 and this is a really easy solution:

    1. Manually register computer with FOG. Put in MAC address with colons between the numbers.
    2. In the host kernal arguments field write nomodeset. Or if host is already registered, edit the field to say that, click on UPDATE.
    3. Manually start a task to image this machine
    4. Start machine and image will run and all is well!

    hi
    i could use your help. i also hava an elitebook 8460p :(



  • Hello,

    I’m having the same message while running the Fog 0.32 base kernel.

    The computer is a HP 6005 Microtower.

    I’m interest into your kernel chad-bisd.

    I would also really appreciate a response to this! Thanks

    I changed my kernel to an older version. 2.6 I think, not at my computer right now to check. I still receive the error message recarding v86d but the registration process continues normal after that.

    I successfully uploaded and deployed the image.[/quote]

    I rolled back to kernel 2.6.28 as stated on this page [url]http://www.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=WorkingDevices[/url]

    Problem solved, thanks.

    I have been trying these steps all afternoon, and have not been able to “make bzImage” I only get

    I was also getting that message when I was trying to run “make xconfig.” Once it finally worked I went in, changed the following:

    All these warnings and error messages while booting the kernel can pretty much be ignored. The kernels that are available through the Fog install, and through the web UI upgrade process are all meant to fit as much hardware as possible. They include drivers for things like acer laptops with faulty fan controls (acerhdf), and trusted platform systems (tps65010) and the carillo mch whatever thingy. It tries to load every driver it knows about, and fails with a warning or error if the right hardware is not found, so you see all those messages.

    It’s not really anything to worry about. The problem is that usually when the kernel fails, it fails silently without telling you what it was doing when it died. You have to run the debug mode to see how far it gets and what kills it. To run the debug mode, you have to set a master password in the Fog web UI.



  • Same problem here with another Dell Optiplex 760. I got the same “v86d” error message mentioned above too. I yanked out the ATI Radeon 3450 card and tried to PXE boot with the onboard Intel video. It got a little further but now I have a new error message:

    “acerhdf: unknown (unsupported) BIOS version Dell Inc. / Optiplex / A02, please report, Aborting!”

    I’m officially reporting. ;)

    Hope you guys can address this, thanks.

    [quote=“Peter Sinclair, post: 1024, member: 379”]Exact same issue with Dell Optiplex 760 with A02 bios
    Note: I had to wind back the bios from A11 down to A02 to even get PXE to work with FOG[/quote]



  • No I didn’t try the amd drivers with the kernel. I did get it to work though

    I changed my kernel to an older version. 2.6 I think, not at my computer right now to check. I still receive the error message recarding v86d but the registration process continues normal after that.

  • @ Wizard210: Have you tried editing your kernel to include the ATI drivers from the link in my above post? I haven’t had any success with it, but i’ve only tried it once and haven’t had a chance to get back to it. I was able to take the video card out of my desktop machines and ran FOG without a problem, so it’s definitely the video driver in my situation.



  • Has there been a fix yet for this. I just received a new HP Pavillion g series that is using an AMD High Definition Driver. Receiving the exact same error message as above. I updated to the latest kernel but still receive the vbe_init() failed with -22.

    A solution for this would be great!
