I like it!! It’s a heck of an idea.

RE: Presenting On FOG at conference?
I was recently asked to give a presentation on FOG by one of the State tech groups (in education) I am involved with in Montana. We have a strong Linux / Mac community here. They are very open source driven and many of the districts here use FOG. Many would like to make the jump into FOG but haven’t taken the leap. I may end up giving a talk here this summer.
I like the idea of setting up a server on a VM. Creating a host image and pushing said image to a new host.
Off topic – At a recent event one of the presenters did a presentation on PFSense. He actually set things up from the ground up. That’s how the conversation arose for me to do the same thing but only with FOG at the State conference.
RE: Keeping WIN10 Images Updated (Windows Updates)
Thanks for the input!
Thanks for that info. I’m looking into setting up a server with MDT on it. Hopefully that will help these issues.
Keeping WIN10 Images Updated (Windows Updates)
I’m curious what others are doing for keeping their images up to date. I have noticed an issue with Windows 10 and not allowing to update in Sysprep / Audit mode. I can get my images up to 1709 and that’s as high as I can go without resealing Windows. I would rather create an updated image and just push the entire updated image instead of having hundreds of computers downloading updates all the time.
Also we use Deep Freeze on our publicly used PCs. The Windows 10 updating is a PITA with those. I was hoping I could pull a new image every couple months to keep them updated but that’s looking to be difficult.
What are you doing to handle Windows 10 updates? Is everyone just using WSUS?
RE: I'm away, but back?
You are a trooper! We certainly appreciate all of your contributions to the FOG project. I agree with @Sebastian-Roth , take some time for yourself buddy. You have been an amazing asset to the FOG project. I don’t know how many times you have bailed me out in the past. Get settled in and get your life in order first. Thank you for making FOG what it is!
Best of luck with your new en-devour!
RE: WIN 10 DVD Drive Issues After Imaging
It’s doubtful it is directly linked to FOG. I believe it has to do with SYSPREP…
To update this:
We were able to isolate 2 registry entries that were causing the issue. The entries were for the DVD drive itself. Windows 10 was not recreating these entries after it ran sysprep and installed the new devices on the host system.
I have since ran a fresh install of Windows 10 on a separate machine (similar hardware). The DVD issues were not apparent after the fresh install. We were able to create new registry entries for the DVD drive based on the ones on the “good working” install of Windows 10. I was able to merge those registry keys onto a non-working Host. After that I removed / added the DVD drive. WIN10 recognized the DVD drive. DVD drive stayed installed after reboot. FTW! Hopefully that’s the fix for the rest of the machines we have with the issue.
Thanks for the moral support. Sometimes that’s all we need!
WIN 10 DVD Drive Issues After Imaging
So, we have ran into an issue with multiple types of laptops and desktop computers that we have imaged using FOG and sysprep, where the DVD drive disappears or shows up in Device Manager with an exclamation point on it. This occurs no matter whether the machine is the same as the original host. On all devices, the OEM does not have any drivers available for the DVD ROM, as Windows 10 is supposed to recognize the device. You can remove the device from device manager and let Windows find it. When you reboot the device, the issue is right back again. This problem only seems to be on sysprep imaged Windows 10 machines. We have rolled some of these devices back to Windows 7 and the problem disappears.
We have followed this websites advice (many of these have been found on other websites as well including many from MS…):
Has anyone else experienced this issue?
RE: 1.6 Issues/Reporting
Multicast fails to start on hosts… Again. I resolved my other issues. I purged php from my server and re-ran the FOG installer. Now I can see multicast sessions appear on my server just fine.
And successfully sent my laptop the fogsettings file. Nothing else multicast seems to work.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
RE: FOG Install Fails at Web Services
OK that would make since. I’d say that is not an issue.
I was jumping back and forth from 1.5.4 to 1.6 yesterday trying to get some kind of stability. Currently I’m on 1.5.4 and have moved on to other projects. But… Would love to get things going again to multicast. PM me if you have any ideas please.
