Fails to PXE boot to FOG



  • I have a machine that has been inventoried and I literally just deployed an image to it via FOG. I installed some software and then ran sysprep again to upload my final image to our FOG server and now when I PXE boot, it just goes straight into Windows…does anyone have any ideas?

    Do you see the iPXE setup screen appear? It should, since you were able to deploy an image earlier, but can you confirm that you see it saying something like (N.B. This is for a system without a task scheduled)

    
    net0: 52:54:00:27:7a:dd using virtio-net on PCI00:03.0 (open)
      [Link:up, TX:0 TXE:0 RX:0 RXE:0]

    Depending on how much or little of this you see we might be able to narrow down where the problem is.

    What do you see in the PXEboot process, can you see it getting a DHCP entry?

    Yeah, it gets to DHCP and sits for a few moments, then proceeds to Windows.

    nhomberg: It should flash up the DHCP process, if it doesn’t then you have an issue with DHCP, does it get that far?



  • I have the same problem. It goes straight TFTP boot and won’t connect.

    Check the task list in fog to make sure that the task has actually be scheduled and is waiting.
