Failed vista image upload help

    @Tom-Elliott Ok, it got to the restarting apache2 for fog vhost and failed. Should I try to install again or is there something else I need to look at?

    Well I’m glad it failed as it could’ve been disasterous. You svnd to the latest didn’t you? You need to checkout a specific revision. Use the command svn co -r 2096 https://svn.code.sf.net/p/freeghost/code/trunk

    If you want to try the latest you’ll most likely need to update your current Linux os.



  • @Tom-Elliott Here is what came out in the terminal

    • Starting web server apache2 *
    • The apache2 configtest failed.
      Output of config test was:
      apache2: Syntax error on line 140 of /etc/apache2/apache2.conf: Syntax error on line 1 of /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/authz_default.load: Cannot load /usr/lib/apache2/modules/mod_authz_default.so into server: /usr/lib/apache2/modules/mod_authz_default.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
      Action ‘configtest’ failed.
      The Apache error log may have more information.

    @the_duke for that particular revision I’d say use svn.



  • @Tom-Elliott oh ok, does it matter which method that I use to update to trunk?

    Vista is known NOT to work on 1.2.0.

    If you want, update to SVN revision 2096 (1.2.0 was SVN revision 2094) and it should be fixed.



  • I’ll go ahead and apologize before hand if I needed to create a new post here. I know that this is a really old post, but I have come back to these laptops and trying to deploy a vista image to them now that I have updated fog versions. I am using fog 1.2.0 on ubuntu 12.04. I have been successful at deploying linux mint 17, ubuntu 12.04 and 14.04 to these laptops. When I try to do a clean install of vista it seems to upload just fine, but on deployment, it starts going through the process;
    checking os…windows vista
    checking cpu cores…2
    send method…nfs
    attempting to send inventory…done
    etc, etc

    goes all the way down to changing hostname…done
    updating computer database status
    database updated
    task is completed, computer will now restart, but it never actually deploys. Computer will reboot and black screen with missing OS.

    Any ideas or suggestions.

    Again these are Lenovo SL500s



  • So what it sounds like is that since the full disk check came back good to go that these laptops just dont seem to want to work right??

    [quote=“the_duke, post: 26741, member: 23777”]I have fog 0.32 and am using a custom kernel. I did a full disk check and came back good. A friend told me to try this, not sure if it will work or not:"[FONT=arial][COLOR=#222222]saw some links that list NCQ compatibility. Also, just turning off NCQ can solve a lot of issues. Apparently, that’s turned off with a kernel parameter of:[/COLOR][/FONT]
    [FONT=arial][COLOR=#222222]libata.force=noncq". [/COLOR][/FONT][/quote]

    I don’t know if this has helped anybody else, but I tried it just for testing purposes and it seems that this argument is not correct. That doesn’t mean it won’t work for your scenerio as it could just mean I don’t have libata.force to actually send arguments loaded at my system’s boot time. This could also, if you have one, only be valid for SSD drives, and I don’t have any SSD’s that I can test with.

    Hi, just so sig is available.

    Okay, I could be off base here, but to me it seems like it could be the BIOS or the Fog Kernel. Have you tried updating to the latest one of Tom’s kernels available in his signature?



  • same model laptop but a different system. it is a lenovo sl500, pretty old but this is for a school. i just used a vista business disk and did a clean install.


  • Moderator

    Did you try another laptop with the same drive, or an entirely different system? What brands are they? Are they using an OEM install or a custom install?



  • Ok I tried another laptop and got the same result. Any other ideas?


  • Moderator

    I would definitely test that drive. Do you have another drive to try in its place?



  • I don’t know, that was my first guess and I really didn’t want to have to do another clean install, just takes so long. Then I had to spend all afternoon putting in a replacement firewall. Will try again tomorrow morning, maybe


  • Senior Developer

    Is the hard drive okay in the laptop? Can you try with another system that has a known good hard drive?
