Problem with win7 and Dell GX755

  • I have run FOG 1.2.0 (svn 2145) with several hundred win 7 clients (Thinkpad T61, T500 etc). All is fine. Today I setup a Dell GX755 with Windows 7. Upload seems to succeed but a new client will not boot after deploy is finished. The screen is black without any warning or blinking cursor. It simply stops right after the FOG menu disappears.

    My working client reports a disk with one partition (see screen shot) and the image folder on serves has the following files:
    -rwxrwxrwx 1 fog fog 2 aug 4 10:51 d1.fixed_size_partitions
    -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 aug 4 10:51 d1.original.fstypes
    -rwxrwxrwx 1 fog fog 259 aug 4 10:51 d1.original.partitions
    -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 aug 4 10:51 d1.original.swapuuids
    -rwxrwxrwx 1 fog fog 8656638 aug 4 10:52 rec.img.000
    -rwxrwxrwx 1 fog fog 11413661870 aug 4 11:25 sys.img.000

    I cannot figure out why the second client fails after deploy as the hardware is identical and it has previously worked with Windows XP (FOG 0.32).


  • Could the problem be there is only one partition (as seen in the screenshot)? My Thinkpad models show two partitions. The one partition GX755 running win7 works fine.
