Fog 1.3.0 : PB with Mac NetBoot
- FOG Version: 1.3.0
- OS: Centos 7
- Service Version: ??
- OS: Mac OS X 10.11.6
I use ISC DHCP configured for mac like on this page : https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=FOG_on_a_MAC, tag fancy
when I boot my iMac (mid 2014), the mac download only ipxe.efi, then it’s stopped for any reason …
with wireshark, I can show the DHCP dialog and the TFTP dialog. Before download ipxe.efi, there are an error :
Error Code, Code : Option negotiation failed, Message : User aborted the transfer,
But the tranfer of ipxe.efi rebegin up to the end (completly without another error)
On /var/log/messages :
Jan 12 11:23:55 for-serv in.tftpd: tftp: client does not accept options
Jan 12 11:24:00 fog-serv in.tftpd: Client x.x.x.x finished ipxe.efi
@dfuriet I think we need the exact model of your iMac to be able to help any further. Please have a look on this website and tell us the exact model you have: http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/imac/index-imac.html
To identify your iMac you can look up important system information via Apple Menu -> About This Mac -> System Report. And while you have this window open may I ask you to also take a screenshot of the Hardware -> Ethernet Cards view (https://www.tonymacx86.com/attachments/fake-screenshot-png.124954/) and post it here.
The better we know your exact model and ethernet card the more we are able to help by digging through the net and even ask the iPXE developers to help - definitely not the first time I’ve done this!
I have updated fog to last version 1.3.3, I can boot with a PC. On mac I hare this error (sorry for revesed picture) :
@dfuriet No, because there a no errror showing, just banner text
@george1421 No :-(
@dfuriet Will you provide a clear screen shot of the failure?
@george1421 Yes, On the Mac, I have the ipxe banner text
@dfuriet There is another forum user that currently has a different issue with Macs and FOG, but it appears that he has been able to pxe boot Macs in the past. I don’t have personal experience with Macs. https://forums.fogproject.org/topic/9269/imac-27-ipxe-boot
But I find it really strange that your system just freezes and the iPXE kernel fails to initialize devices or anything. Does the Mac console display the iPXE banner text.
same freeze screen with ipxe7156.efi …
My install is a upgrade from previus 1.3.0RCxx release. I’ll try with a new fresh install of 1.3.0.
Yes, my mac is just freeze, or waiting something
I’ll try ipxe7156.efi
You can ignore the tftp client does not accept options, that is a warning not an error and is always there.
It downloads the ipxe.efi file and then stops, is there any error message or the system just freezes?
Instead of using (as a test) ipxe.efi, please try this boot file ipxe7156.efi. This is a legacy ipxe boot kernel that seems to work well with some other hardware (like surface pros).
