RE: Deploying an Image
@shoong after uploading i changed the new host to ATA and it booted. However It will not let me authenticate my windows 7 key. Says that my bios is not licensed and so im stuck there. Would the next step be to play with the Bios on the Host im taking the image from? This Host is extremely important and i would hate to F something up on his computer. The new host i deployed to was set to Raid in the bios (which i then changed to ATA after deployment).
In the Optiplex Bios
On Raid(default): Will not boot
ATA: boots but gets below error
AHCI: Will not boot
For clarification purposes. I am trying to take a Custom Build Host1 (gigabyte MotherBoard) to an Optiplex 9020 Host2
RE: Deploying an Image
I had the same issue moving from one Bare metal Machine to an Optiplex. Set the SATA port to ATA and it booted. I will be uploading the image with better compatability like need2 mentioned here.
Windows 7 still thought SATA was a little hard. Before you upload the image, you should generalize the way Windows handles its storage drivers. HowTo:
What that will do is force Windows to try multiple different types of storage driver on boot, instead of just the last one it used. The reason you are having this is that the VM likely used a form of IDE driver, and your Dell Optiplex 3020 defaults to AHCI mode on its SATA port.
If you really didn’t want to upload the image again, you could go to the BIOS and change the SATA mode to IDE or Compatibility. This should allow you to boot at least, but you will be running the drive controller much slower than it is capable of.
FYI that link is broken.
Fog server 4956 won't deploy image to host
I recently installed a fog Version 4956 on Fedora 22 64bit server. Everything went as planned with installation and first image upload. However when i attempt to download that image to a new host nothing happens. I setup the task for download then reboot the host to network and for some reason it just brings me to the FOG splash screen with options to register host etc… etc… Once I shutdown the destination host and check on the FOG tasks I see that the download task dispersal. as if it actually deployed the image. I get no warnings or error. I have tried using a new similar image i uploaded with the same results.
RE: Rev fog 4938 Not possible to create image
This is fixed in latest trunk. Sorry had a bad method call.
My install is brand new too 4938. Should i be rerunning the ./installfog.sh? I want to make sure i do this right. I find it strange that i did the SVN install originally which says its at version 4157. Would have thought that would have been my version.
