Acer Aspire E 11 ( ES1-111M-P2YU )
You enter into the firmware of this laptop by holding down the F2 key right after you turn on the laptop.
Network booting comes disabled by default.
F12 Boot Menu comes disabled by default.
Wake on LAN comes disabled by default.
It supports UEFI booting and Legacy booting.
In UEFI mode, without a supervisor password set, you cannot change any of the Secure Boot settings whatsoever.
After setting a supervisor password, you can choose to allow some pre-loaded .efi files.
You can turn off secure boot in the firmware’s boot menu tab.
You can, however, leave Secure Boot turned on and add ipxe.efi to the trusted UEFI file list. Here are directions:
- Format a USB Flash drive with fat32 file system.
- Copy ipxe.efi to the flash drive.
- Plug flash drive into laptop - no reboot required.
- In the Firmware ( hold F2 during power on ), go to the Security tab.
- If a supervisor password is not set yet, set one.
- Go to “Select an UEFI file as trusted for executing”
- Choose “USB0”
- Pick ipxe.efi
- Give the file a description (I used ipxeEfi ).
- Press enter once, then select [Yes]
I referenced this in my other post, but this fixed my issues as well. Thanks!
As of svn 4724 cloud 6112 I am able to successfully upload a GPT type disk from this computer using “Single Disk - Resizable” type images - in UEFI mode using ipxe.efi
Secure boot had to be totally disabled though.
The top command is fdisk -l second is lsblk, third is fixparts.
It’s a GPT disk obviously.
@Wayne-Workman This looks like issue with the disk layout maybe?
single disk multiple partition Non-resizable
Appears to work so far. It’s uploading the large partition at the moment.
Yes, it appears to have captured correctly:
ls -laht /images/acere11manufacturerbase
total 28G drwxrwxrwx. 27 fog root 4.0K Jan 19 10:13 .. drwxrwxrwx 2 root root 100 Jan 19 10:12 . -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 12G Jan 19 10:12 d1p5.img -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16G Jan 19 10:01 d1p4.img -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 2.0M Jan 19 09:43 d1p3.img -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 24M Jan 19 09:43 d1p2.img -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 232M Jan 19 09:42 d1p1.img -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 1.0M Jan 19 09:42 d1.mbr
Hit a bump… @Developers
Image type I tried: Windows 8.1 resizable. I’ll try non-resizable and see what happens.
Fog settings so far for this device:
Boot file: ipxe.efi
Host EFI Exit Type: REFINED_EFI
The below MAC address detection issue is resolved as of svn 4678 cloud 6020
@Tom-Elliott I will try on Tuesday… Thanks for updating it so quickly!
@GFm I hope this is all fixed now if you are willing to up and test.
Thanks a lot!
Tried that still says Version: 5972 in fog… it said checked out rev 4653
Cool thanks… I’ll give it a try!
I just updated and go the same thing.
Cool thanks… I’ll give it a try!
Is there a different way I should get the latest update?
There are several ways, but the one you did is valid. you could shorten that line by just typing
svn upat that step to pull the latest.
Tried updating via
svn checkout https://svn.code.sf.net/p/freeghost/code/trunk
and it checks out and installs 5972. Is there a different way I should get the latest update? That was the one I was still on?
@nbuursma Actually, Tom says it might be fixed now. I just haven’t tried yet, got caught up with something. Try to update.
Not fixed… still getting “Invalid Mac Address” when registering host.
