Hello everyone, first time user/poster.
I have set up a FOG server (on an Ubuntu 11.04 box) in a call center environment. My hosts can connect to the server through PXE boot but I have not been able to perform a successful image upload. I have scheduled the upload on the server and rebooted the host, it will go into an upload script but will not result in a successful upload.
The upload results in a blue screen that states “restoring mbr…done”, “waiting for disk to settle…done”, and “re-sizing ntfs…done”. After these three messages, the computer reboots without an upload. I am attempting a single-partition ntfs upload. Windows XP with FOG 0.32.
Things I have tried to resolve the issue:
-Running the FOG client service on the host PC
-Re-sizing the partition to the minimum size (leaving the rest of the disk unallocated)
-Uploading using the multiple-partition image option. This results in an upload status bar that reads 0% before the computer reboots.
-Running chkdsk on the host
I suspect that the issue may have something to do with the MBR but I do not know what exactly. I have a beginner to intermediate knowledge/experience of Linux so any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
