  • @tseraj First, troubleshoot that it is the device and not the network. Hookup a dumb switch (unmanaged consumer grade switch) between your building’s network and this computer, and try again. If it succeeds, it’s your network. If it’s the same issue, it’s something with the device. If it’s something with the device, You may need to use the 10-second delay boot ROMs that Tom recently added. What is the filename that you have set in DHCP option 067/filename ? There’s a directory on the fog server, I think it’s /tftpboot/10secdelay or something similar. What you need to try is rename your currently in-use to blah.old and then move the 10secdelay version of that file to the /tftpboot directory so that it starts getting used, and then try again.

  • @tseraj So for Ubuntu 14, I’ve ran the updates by Git according to the FogProject Wiki’s commands. Now that I try to PXE boot a laptop in order to pull an image for it and clone it, the following error pops up: DHCP failed, hit ‘s’ for the iPXE shell; reboot in 10 seconds Now on the top of the screen, it detects the DHCP ID, Gateway ID, Client IP, GUID, and Mask correctly. So I am not sure if it’s a hardware issue where I need to get a better Ethernet Controller since I have a Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller Series v1.38 (06/16/15). The laptop is a HP Pavillion 15t-au100. So is it that or should I press s and run a specific iPXE command/script to override this problem? OH BY THE WAY. I PXE booted other laptops and the PXE booted sucessfully and loaded up. So this is the only one causing the problem. Please help.
