iPXE boot problem
I have a problem with booting on Ipxe, the error message is : “”/default.ipxe… No such file or directory (http://ipxe.org/2d12603b)" . I want to change the HDD (because it makes noises and it creates bugs) and deploy an installation on it. Strangely, when i change the HDD i get the message error above but when i put the old HDD back, I can boot on iPXE with the FOG menu.
What can be the problem?
Thanks in advance,
It works now !!! Thank you very much. thanks to you, I understand “Fog Server” better than before this issue :+1:
Well it looks better - as I said. But it’s up to you to give it a try deploying it to another computer and see if it boots up properly afterwards.
Last time, the uploading was faster than now … I didn’t really notice an uploading of the 2nd parition :/ i didn’t try to fog a computer yet … You think it’s time to test this image ?
Well, sda3=SWAP, ok that’s fine then (should have thought about this earlier). But what changed now??? d1p2.img looks a lot better now!! What is different from capturing last time?

That’s what I have during the upload of the 2nd parition:
But I have this now on the Fog server :
[root@fog MikreleaseTEST]# ls -al

You think it’s ok now ? d1p2.img is bigger than before
Showing the partitions with fdisk would be more interesting. Can you please run
fdisk -l /dev/sdaas root on this system and post the output here?
dfshows that /dev/sda2 is mounted as the root partition (/). So this is a really important part af your system and should not be only a few kilobyte as an image file. What do you see when uploading an image when partclone is coming up with /dev/sda2?? Does it take several minutes or just skipping away in seconds?
I have no problem with the machine I uploaded the image, I can show you all the partitions in the computer with a “df -h” :
there is no /dev/sda3,I suppose that’s why there is no d1p3. img file in /opt/images/****

Why is partition two image file (d1p2.img) really small?? And why is d1p3.img missing? What does your partition scheme on this client machine look like? I am confused.
Has uploading and downloading an image ever worked with this machine? I doubt it.
no message error when I uploaded the image again …

And you don’t see any errors while uploading the image again?? Please show us what you have in those directories
ls -al /opt/images/MikreleaseTEST /opt/images/mikreleaseup
OK I found the directory it was /opt/images
[root@fog ~]# cd /opt/images
[root@fog images]# ls -al

I uploaded a new Image from a Master (MikreleaseTEST) but i still have the message error for the 2nd partition…
This post is deleted!
Well at least the second partition seams to have an issue.
Where are you images stored then?? /images is the default path used by FOG.

I don’t have /images directory … The image is an upload of a master, you think the image is corrupted ?
The red and green messages you see when booting are iPXE debug messages. You can just ignore those for the moment! Works like a charm as we see.
The error “This is not partclone image” does not sound very healthy. I guess the image is corrupt. Can you run this command on the FOG server
ls -al /images/mikreleaseupand post the output here. Anyhow, I guess it would be a good idea to capture this image from your host again. When and how was this image created?
I took some pictures, i put the links below :
But after that it continues :

@Bcetinkaya Can you take a photo of that error, the “no image in partclone” message?

The installation begins, but i have an error message : “no image in PartClone” but it continues and it fogs the machine

@Bcetinkaya What happens after that?
