Dell Optiplex 390 in a reboot loop if booting in FOG PXE menu



  • Hi everyone,

    What would cause my Dell Optiplex 390 with WIN7 to reboot after it boot in to the FOG PXE menu and boot from harddrive after the 3 seconds? If my first boot device is the HDD itself then everything works fine.

    Also it looks like there is errors booting into the FOG PXE menu, but it goes too fast for me too read them. is there any way they would be in a log file somewhere?

    Regards
    Ronnie

  • Hi,

    Well no side effect at this moment ;-)

    Yes, the only one I have now is the PXE boot that is a bit slow, of course, my Optiplex 390 is 30km away from the FOG server, with a tiny VPN between both sites.
    But no other effect.

    This is great news!! do you have any unpleasant side effects?

    You’ve got to setup chain loading for the latest Dell machines to be able to boot to the hard drive once you’ve PXE booted into FOG.[/quote]
    Thank you very much for this. I did spot this chain loading earlier in my search, but the side effects i was not so sure that i liked. Do you find them to be in the way at all?

    Do you know what causes this behavior?
