Hi, I’m trying to capture a new Image, I read many topics on this subject, but I cannot find a solution.
OS = Ubunu 14.4.5 LTS (patched)
FOG Version = 1.4.4
bzImage Version: 4.11.0
bzImage32 Version: 4.11.0
PC is a Lenovo MIIX 320 (2in1 tablet/notebook). It doesn’t support legacy mode. I disabled secure boot.
USB-C Ethernet adapter
boot image: ipxe.efi
enabled “host kernel parameter”: has_usb_nic=1
EFI exit type is “refind EFI”
Fog boot menu is loaded correctly, but when I choose any option, it reboots. I manually registered Host and planned a capture task. Now I’m stuck here:
troubleshoot steps already tried:
Change boot image: with all others *.efi images I’ve a “PXE Boot failed” error
Update Fog to Trunk (done yesterday, it was a 1.5 RC release, i did not take note of svn version): with some images I’ve a “dhcp failed” error, with others it stops after loading init.xz
I read somewhere (in this forum) about modified/patched kernels for UEFI, but I didn’t find info on how to obtain it.
I tried to update kernel from fog configuation - kernel update to Kernel - 4.13.4 TomElliott, but I’ve a “Type: 2, File: /var/www/html/fog/lib/fog/fogftp.class.php, Line: 707, Message: ftp_put(): Could not create file., Host: 192.168.168.91, Username: fog”. It pretty weird (for me) that it doesn’t say what’s the filename i is not able to update, but I double checked FTP credentials and it should be ok.
Last note: with non-pxe images on other hosts, Fog server works fine. I did no take care of the “legacy/UEFI coexistance” problem at this time, to simplify troubleshooting, I’m working like if I’m goin to have only uefi hosts in the future.
should i contact ipxe team (another issue is that from USB of this device it’s not possible to boot anything that’s not WinPE) or could some of you help me? thank you!
PS: this afternoon I’m going to install a new test server from scratch with newest Ubuntu and I’ll try to update kernel on that one. I’ll keep this post updated.
