This seems to be a common enough problem, but all the threads I am able to find about it are either really old or not quite specific enough to my issue. I’m using FOG 1.5.9 on a headless Debian 10 Buster server which is running in a Proxmox VM. I have it all set up, I believe, correctly. I was able to properly register and capture an image from my much newer (Ryzen 7 3700X) gaming machine but when I try to boot my HTPC (i5 3470) it hangs on initializing devices. I’m not sure which machine would be at fault here. My server (LGA 771 era dual Xeon machine) but it works for the gaming machine so I’m at a loss. I think it has to be the fault of the HTPC but I don’t even know where to begin. I’ve read that realtek NICs can cause this problem, but the NIC in my HTPC is a Qualcomm and the VM is using a virtual intel NIC, probably passed through from the Supermicro motherboard.
Any constructive input appreciated. Thanks.
EDIT: After a little more research, I’ve been able to determine one possibility. Could it maybe be a host boot kernel issue? I’m apparently running kernel 4.19.0-11, but that kernel isn’t even listed when I go into Kernel Update in FOG. Would it be worth upgrading the kernel? I don’t want to make it stop booting my gaming rig.
EDIT AGAIN: Now that I think about it, the kernel that FOG is running doesn’t have to be the same one that it boots hosts on. Where do I find which kernel it is using to boot hosts? My other question still stands though, if I can upgrade the kernel, is that something worth trying?
EDIT #3: Corrections.
