Init.xz error while booting up for image upload

  • Hi there,

    i am trying to Image a VMware virtual machine via FOG 1.2 SVN 3082 and I get this strange error attached to this post. I am running VMware Workstation 11 and the FOG Host is a ubuntu Server 13.10

    Could you please look after this error and give me a hint… thanks!

    in my experience, this happens when i set up a VM as a “windows 8” computer, but not when i set it up as a “windows 7” computer in the new VM wizard. there are no settings i can find after VM creation that make it usable, but you can always install windows 8 on a “windows 7” VM

    I think we will fix it since it directly affects 2 devs. Even if it didn’t we would still try o fix it. We are still tossing around some changes in the kernels to correct this but seems to effect vmware and virtual box.

  • Puh,
    regarding your first answer, I’m afraid I can’t test it on real hardware at the moment due to the Weekend.

    Do you think you can solve the problem regarding vmware?
    Before i switched to the higher svn versions the imaging still worked in Version 1.2.0 without the svn features installed.

    OK so I’m hitting a few things back and forth with Tom and jbob. Seems to be an issue with VMware’s Windows 7 x64, Windows 8, Windows 8 x64 versions. You will find if you change the version to Windows 7 (32bit) the menu items work correctly.

    Something isn’t working between the versions and the kernel/init files.

    UPDATE: We are suspecting VMware to be the issue.

    At this point in time FOG is not friendly with the VMware Hosts. We are currently working with this issue. Are you getting these errors on hardware machines?
