We just recently updated to 1.0.1 and found out that FOG now uses iPXE instead of just PXE.
I have looked into iPXE and mostly it works good, although sometimes a bit slower than the old PXE.
The problem we’re facing is that we bought around 100 Lenovo Thinkpad Yogas for our school teachers and because ultrabooks no longer have an RJ-45 adapter we had to buy usb to ethernet adapters for each one. Only problem there is that iPXE isn’t compatible with any usb to ethernet adpater so it doesn’t find any network devices.
We also bought a couple of Lenovo Yoga 2, which have a PXE Boot Option altough this doesn’t really work. (I don’t want to ask for help in this forum as it’s not really related ;))
Now to kill 2 birds with one stone: would it be possible to create a small Linux distro which boots up from a USB drive, loads the network, connects to fog and then starts an imaging process?
I had tried to use the Clonezilla Live USB option with kernel parameters to connect to the NFS Share of Fog and it kinda works. As it only mounts read-only it’s able to download an image specified in the parameters. So no automation there, the parameter has to be changed for every image in the boot file of the iso.
FOG Version: 1.0.1
OS Version: Debian 7
and yes I have searched the forums, but using a usb key for those problems would be a different approach
