Invalid operating system id (7)! Trying to image win8.1 in fog 1.2.0



  • I’m seeing the attached error (Invalid operating system id (7)!) when trying to deploy a windows 8.1 image to a machine. My co-worker reports getting the same error when trying to upload a new windows 8.1 image from a completely different type of machine. I’ve tried different kernel versions with no success. Any ideas? Thanks!

  • [quote=“Tom Elliott, post: 45104, member: 7271”]Windows 8.1 was added as it’s own OSID, but the init file you’re using isn’t checking for it which leads me to believe you have a bad init, or somebody customized it in some fashion without knowing where to add the proper checks for the new OSID’s that have been added.[/quote]

    [quote=“bjohnson84, post: 45105, member: 1083”]I believe you’re correct about the init file. I do remember overwriting it and other files in the ipxe folder to make some custom settings work again after the upgrade. I’ll switch them back to the newer versions and let you know the results. Thanks![/quote]

    That fixed the problem! Thanks for taking the time to help with my stupid mistakes!

  • [quote=“Uncle Frank, post: 45065, member: 28116”]From what I can see in the source code this error should never happen. Seven (7) is a valid OS and it’s being checked…

    Did you change the OSID of this image after uploading it? Are you able to upload/deploy other machines (e.g. Win 7)?[/quote]

    The image I’m trying to deploy was used last summer successfully on about 500 laptops. We hadn’t touched the image since. But did try changing the OSID to Windows 8 to see if we could get the image to deploy. Didn’t get the error but had other issues. We have successfully uploaded/downloaded Windows 7 images in our testing. We have failed at uploading a brand new image that was Win8.1. The only thing that I think has changed since last summer was updating the server to 1.2.0 and kernel updates.

    Thanks for your help on this!
