FOG 1.3.0 and UEFI



  • Hello All,

    I have recently upgraded to FOG 1.3.0 and so it is great! Does have any advice on booting a UEFI device and imaging it? Which .efi file have others been using? Any gotchas or tripping points with this? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you in advance!

    Anthony

    Sorry for the long delay I have been swamped with other project. Thank you for getting back with me and the link to the guide. I will look into possibly upgrading that server to 2012. Thank you again for all of your assistance, it really is appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Anthony

    @atarone Unfortunately, with 2008 dhcp server you are out of luck. If you have a 2012 dhcp server you can follow the instructions found here: https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=BIOS_and_UEFI_Co-Existence

    This guide does not work with 2008 dhcp server.



  • Hi George1421,

    Thank you for getting back to me. I am version 7013 of the trunk. The machine I will be testing on is Dell Latitiude E5440, but I will be having a mix of UEFI and BIOS boot devices in our environment and we will be running a Windows Server 2008R2 DHCP server. Please advise the recommended way implement this.

    Thanks,

    Anthony

    Lets flip this around a bit.

    What version of fog are you on? The trunk build has a revision number in the cloud. What is that 4 digit number?

    What device are you trying to uefi boot. Manufacturer and model.

    The default uefi file I would start with is snponly.efi

    Do you have a mix of bios and uefi systems you want to pxe boot? If you are also running 2012 dhcp server or a linux dhcp server there is some settings you can adjust to make your life a bit easier when trying to pxe boot both environments.
