FOG menu options once booted from network.



  • Just started with FOG and currently loving it but…

    Is there a way to edit the menu so that I can pick a image to load?

    I ask this because I have to image about 10 different dell optiplex models. Right now I have a “current” image i use for all new pcs that come in and need to get staged then installed, but we have a pile of older ones I wipe then image. The current ones get a quick reg, then reboot and gest imaged and i love that, but I was wondering if it was possible to boot to a menu where I could select the image from a list of available images. Right now i need to quick reg the old pc, then log into fog, find it in the host list, change its default image reboot old mahcine. I would love to do it all from the client itself.

    Thank you!

    Since you just started with FOG I understand the confusion…
    What you need to do is Perform full host registration and the 2nd input asks which image to specify and from there you can type “?” to see the list and their id numbers.

    than at the end will ask if you want to image the machine now just yep Y and when it reboots make sure to Network boot again and it will start the imaging.

    Another options is to use the groups.
    Do the same setup but when it ask for a group just type ? and find a group you have made and than continue. Once complete just select NO to image machine and once it has rebooted turn the machine off. now you can start a Multicast for that group and now when you network boot it will start the imaging…

    if you update to the development build, the ability to choose an image from the “quick image” option is available

    Wouldn’t full registration do the same thing?
