Having Issues Deploying my first image.

  • So I just setup the fog server and am able to pxe boot and register a host/client computer. I then was able to upload my first image and store it on the fog server. My problem now is that after I register a host, start the job to deploy the image, the host computer fails to image properly.

    The host computer gets to the partclone page and I can see it uploading. It gets to 100% and then it brings me to a stripped down fog grub menu. If I hit boot from hard disk nothing happens. And if restart the computer it just pxe boots again because there’s no OS installed on it to boot from.



    For the image i’m deploying, I’ve tried setting the type to both single partition and multiple partition image -Single Disk. The image is also a windows embedded image.

    I’m using Ubuntu 14 server with Fog 1.2

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • @phil_guy It’s not a linux or fog question. When the computer turns on, you usually hit F2 to enter the BIOS. On some HPs, it’s the Esc key, for Lenovos it’s usually the Enter key. Then just compare each item line for line on both the golden machine and target machine.

  • @Wayne-Workman Stupid question but how do I check that? I’m new to linux and this is my first fog server build. I’m been using fog .32 that someone else built for me. The source image is a mult-partition Windows 7 image being deployed onto a 64 GB msata.

    @phil_guy Mbr error1 sounds like a corrupted MBR, can you check the original computer you got the image from if it works properly?

    Also, double and triple check the boot order in BIOS settings.

    edit: Also, do you happen to have multiple disks in this computer??

  • @phil_guy Make sure the source and destination machine’s HDD settings and BIOS/UEFI settings match.

  • @Quazz I do get an MBR error 1 message upon restarting.

  • @Wayne-Workman After the stripped down fog grub menu and I restart the computer, if I try and boot straight from the hard drive I get an MBR error 1 message.

  • Here’s the output you requested.


    I’m deploying a windows 7 embedded image on a custom built computer. Its got an MSI board, AMD Processor, 4GB Ram, and a 64GB SSD.

    It kind of looks like you’re trying to deploy an MBR system to an EFI system?

  • Let’s make sure the upload happened correctly? On your fog server, issue this command:
    ls -lahRt /images

    Can you post the output of that please?

    Also, what model of computer are you imaging? And what OS are you imaging?
