Stuck on Booting to local disk...

  • This is a brand new installation of fog 32. I have one set of hardware in my school that it will get to the GUI pxe boot screen of fog and if you let it auto-choose Boot from hard disk it will go to a screen that says stuck on booting to local disk. If you choose boot from hard disk it will go to a blank screen.

    I actually fixed this problem last year but I no longer remember the file I needed to change. This is what I remember. The issue started in version .29 and there was some file that I could copy from the .28 installation files that would make .29 (and .32) work with my hardware. I just don’t remember what that file was.


  • I got it. What I did was replace the pxelinux.0 file from version .28 and now my computers boot. I am not sure what I am loosing, but it works for me.

    This is what I did (going from memory and a very basic linux user, so you might not want to take these commands word for word):
    Install Fog .32
    Download and extract the installations files for version .28
    sudo su
    cp /tftpboot/pxelinux.0 /tftpboot/pxelinux.0.v32
    rm /tftpboot/pxelinux.0
    cp ~/Downloads/fog_2.8/packages/tftpboot/pxelinux.0 /tftpboot/pxelinux.0


  • I’m assuming you either copied the kernel over from your old installation, or setup chain loading. Kerenels can be found here: [url][/url] and information on chain loading here: [url][/url].
