NIC Intel 82579LM PXE issue
We didn’t try other machines… We had to restore it to the old kernel so that we could continue working!
Hopefully, we can make some progress next week. Thanks for your help.
I tinkered with this some more. With the bzimage34 kernel… when it tries to push down to the client, it checks hard disk and says “image cannot be outside of disk” or something to that affect. Went into the client and it had a TON of partitions… more than the 250 GB hard drive… it was like 1TB+. I pulled out the HDD and reformatted in an external enclosure. Trying the push down again to the client.
Same error message: Can’t have partition outside the disk…
A message does flash really fast about an unsupported BIOS version… but I’m not sure if that is actually the problem we’re having.
I just wanted to see if anyone had a chance to T/S this? Getting anxious due to deadlines!
Any way I can get this kernel everytime i go to your link it doesnt give me anything to download, no link just a page asking me to signin or upload?

Sorry about the dead link. I didn’t know there was a time limit to the post. I have reloaded it.

Sorry I missed these posts. I’ve only seen this issue when I am trying to dump a partition to a drive that is smaller than the partition. For example, if I imaged an 80 GB partition and tried to put that image on a 60 GB drive, I would get that error.
The trick to make all of you images work on all of your machines (well at least part of the trick) is to shrink your windows partition before you image it. Then you can extend it when you install. My images all “extend” via a vbscript after the imaging process is complete and sysprep is running.
I have the same Problem on Intels 82579LM, speed slows down to 60MB/min by using multicast. Can someone please upload the Kernel 3.4 again? All links are down.
Try this one.
I think that is the image file. If you have issues, let me know.
Thank you astrouga! I downloaded the new Kernel, but multicast is still very slow. max 70/MB per Minute in a Gbit network. Unicast runs well. Trying other Kernels dont fix the problem…
Any idea why only multicast connection is slow and unicast runs well?
Dell Optiplex 790
Tested Kernels: 3.4, 3.3, 2.6
Fog 0.32 Syslinux FIX in a Virtual Box.
Running a multicast in debug mode:
Timeout notAnswered=[0,1] notReady=[0,1] nrAns=0 nrRead=0 nrPart=2 avg=30079 bytes= 39 033 904 re-xmits=0000000 (0.0%) slice=1024 73 709 551 615 - 0
But both clients running with ~60MB/min
