FOG PXE and Intel-based Apple?



  • Hey everyone, I’m sorry, I’m very new to this, so if I sound like I have no idea what I’m talking about I apologize. What I am looking to do is host an image of DBAN on my FOG Server that I am able to push to both Macs (Macbooks, Macbook Pros, etc.) as well as PCs. Now, I already have this set up and working beautifully with PCs, but I cannot figure out how to successfully PXE boot any Macs with my FOG server. Is this even possible? Any advice would be very much appreciated! Thanks! :)

    Once you get the gPXE-1.0.1+ CD/DVD image then you can incorporate that with Clonezilla Live for PXE to image your MAC systems.
    The following post will do the trick :

    Thank you so much! While it may not be as easy as PXE booting PCs, it will sure be a lot faster than having to insert the factory OS disk, and run a 7-pass hard drive wipe when I can use DBAN to do a 3-pass wipe through the FOG server. Again, thank you! I really appreciate your help!
