PXE boot kernel panic?



  • Hi,
    I have a couple of new PC’s which I’d like to image with FOG. Unfortunatly the pc freezes up when loading the PXE client. The menu loads and I can choose an option, but after it loads bzImage and init.gz the machine just freezes and has to be killed via power switch. I also tried running the debug task with the same results.
    I tested with a different client PC and it all works as expected, so I assume it hase something to do with this specific hw config.

    Any ideas what could be causing this?
    Thx

    Server:

    • FOG 0.32 on Ubuntu 12.04
    • default PXE Kernel as well as newer Kernel 3.8.8
      Clients:
    • Gigabyte GA-H81M-D2W Mainboard
    • Core i3 4130 / Core i5 4440
    • Intel HD 4400


  • We recently had this issue on only an individual PC. Perform a mem test through FOG’s PXE boot. We determined it to be a memory issue with the machine. If you are having success with other machines, it would have to be traced back to that specific machine.

    Sourceminer, have you tried with the TomElliott kernels? I’m assuming so as you’re using the latest if I recall correctly, but maybe (if you’re on the current SVN) you can enable the FOG_KERNEL_DEBUG and set the FOG_KERNEL_LOGLEVEL to max and see if we can at least try obtaining a little more information as to the issue?



  • Can you further explain that you did to fix your issue? I think I am having the same issue with several machines.
    Except mine just reboot, almost like a panic then reset by the bios.



  • Got it work by compiling custom kernel.
