• I hope someone can help me with this problem.

    In older versions it is simple to make a imaging solution woithout the registration module…

    In earlier versions have moified the pxe menu so that i can choose a spesific image without host registration, in version 1.2 the folder structure for /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg has changed. Does anybody know where i can change the menu in V 1.2 ?

    I can try to help but if you’re on 1.2.0 you’re rather restricted to advanced menu. There is no need to edit any files on the server with the current setup.

  • So i want to add parted magic to the menu, but when i open vesamenu.c32 with vi or vim it just looks like a bunch of scrambled garbage?

    If you are upgraded to SVN, you will not need this any more.

  • In older versions i had a manual.gz, and a custom Default file in /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg.
    The main reason for this was to make it easy for Teachers on our Schools to image clients without register them in fog.
    is it possible to do the same with Ipxe?

    I tryed to do this by ipxe but didnt get it right, my defalut file looks like this:
    DEFAULT vesamenu.c32
    MENU TITLE FOG Computer Cloning Solution
    MENU BACKGROUND fog/bg.png
    MENU MASTER PASSWD $somepass/
    menu color title 1;36;44 #ffffffff #3BB9FF std

    LABEL fog.local
    localboot 0
    MENU LABEL Boot from hard disk
    Boot from the local hard drive.
    If you are unsure, select this option.

    (This is the importat one, imaging without reg)
    kernel fog/kernel/bzImage
    append initrd=fog/images/manual.gz root=/dev/ram0 rw ramdisk_size=127000 ip=dhcp dns=“some adress” type=down img=adm2014 ftp= storage= web= osid=5 imgType=mps shutdown= loglevel=4 fdrive=
    MENU LABEL Admin Image
    Tanker Generic adm image

  • Thank you Wolf 🙂 It is up and running now! Awesome.

    That clues us in a bit more. You are most likely the release of 1.2.0 which is revision 2094. This is the most stable release without going to beta versions. If you want to get updated to the beta versions please use one of the methods on this [URL=‘http://fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/Upgrade_to_trunk’]wiki[/URL].


    Trunk is the most up-to-date at that point in time. Keep an eye out if you update to this. You are bound to hit issues and ussually if reported Tom(Senior Developer) will have it fixed in less than a day or so. This means constant updating for more features and fixes.

    The extra menu items are in the trunk and thus why you do not have them. If you do not wish to update to the trunk you will have to edit your advanced menu. You will find examples here:

    Here is the best example for editing the advanced menu [url]http://fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/Edit_PXE_menu_to_create_sub_menus[/url]

  • I am really not a Linux person, so i downloaded Fog from the sourceforge page, V1.2.0.
    And i cannot see the ipxe menu, i can see that Wolfbane are running the 1.3.0 version, so how do i upgrade?

    What exact revision do you have?

    Fog 1.2.0-r???

  • If i go to Fog Configuration i have no ipxe men, but i have the pxe boot menu.
    Fog 1.2.0 installed by using the install script (best practice)

    [quote=“viggo, post: 39054, member: 457”]There is no ipxe menu in Fog 1.2.0.[/quote]

    More detail?

  • There is no ipxe menu in Fog 1.2.0.

  • Developer

    Fog Configuration. iPXE Boot Menu, iPXE New Menu Entry, iPXE Menu Configuration.

    PXE is chainloading iPXE so you will no longer edit the PXE menu but you will NOW edit the iPXE Menu. using the above Config entries.
