Lenovo T560

  • Greetings All,

    Currently got a batch of new Lenovo t560’s in and fog is telling me the “Network” isn’t compatible. Does anyone happen to know what kernel might work with this model? The Ethernet card in these is “Intel i219-V”

    I’m fairly new to managing fog so please forgive me. I do believe the kernel is my issue. I’m currently on Fog v. 1.2.0

    Any help is greatly appreciated.


  • @george1421 You’re absolutely right, thanks a lot. I upgraded to Ubuntu 14.04 / fog 1.3.4 and can boot and run the inventory on Lenovo T560 with Kernel 4.4.0 and 4.9.11

    @MarkusK I can tell you, you will have marginal luck trying to pxe boot current hardware and capturing a current OS on a 4 year old kernel.

    My recommendation would be to update FOG to 1.3.4 or later to get kernels 4.9.X which will probably boot that system.

  • Did anyone succeed imaging a Lenovo T560. I tried different kernels from 3.19.3 to 4.1.2 x64 and x86 and they all fail at “Quick Registration and Inventory” with different error messages from “kernel panic” to “cdc_ether 1-2:2.0 usb0: kevent 12 may have been dropped”. I’m using fog 1.2.0.

  • @george1421 Once I get back to my office I can tell ya. I can’t remote to my server from where I am at. We have an AIO desktop we are having an issue with as well. Hoping the kernel is the problem. We have quite a few laptops.

    What FOS kernel are you using? You will probably want to be on 4.1.2 but not anything greater than 4.4.0
