Windows 8.1 On Fog 0.32
I’ve read a lot of post that people have had success with deploying a Windows 8 image using Fog 0.32 and just treating it like Windows 7. I have tried this many times and I’m still coming up with bricks. I select the image to upload as a Windows 7 OS, since there is no option for Windows 8, and select Multiple partition Image - Single Disk (Not Resizable). However every time I go to upload it starts and then just freezes. And it eventually kicks out of the PXE boot. We have been imaging Windows 7 computers for years with this Fog 0.32 server and really would like to start rolling out Windows 8. Would it be better to rebuild a Fog 1.2 server? Would that help the situation? I’m just really stuck on the best practices on Fogging a Windows 8 machine.
Thanks Wayne. I’ll start to build a FOG 1.2 and see how things turn out. Thank you for your advise.
I’d recommend FOG 1.2.0 (or Trunk, for that matter).
Don’t tear down your old FOG server, just turn it off and set it aside, and build a new one.
I couldn’t help you with .32, I’ve never used it. In my eyes, 1.2.0 is even becoming dated, Trunk version has a plethora of fixes and it’s what I use at work.
Ultimately, of course, it’s up to you to choose either 1.2.0 or Trunk. See my signature on details about trunk.
