I am deploying Windows 10 Pro x64 2004 to a bunch of Dell 3930 Rack units, very simple image which is working fine if deployed via PXE with Legacy boot using undionly.pxe.
I am attempting to use the 10Gb Aquantia AQtion 10Gbit controller that is onboard these servers for faster capture and deployment. As mentioned above it is working fine with PXE boot when the BIOS is set to Legacy mode. However if I change the BIOS back to UEFI, enabled UEFI Network Stack and disable Secure Boot I cannot boot to the FOG bootloader at all.
What I have tried:
Switching bootfile and Option 67 on DHCP to use the following ipxe.efi, snponly.efi, snp.efi to no avail.
Switched to using the onboard Intel I210 1Gb NIC and with ipxe.efi it does get to the bootloader which tells me it is the Aquantia NIC having the issues.
I select the UEFI NIC PXE boot option on boot, I get the downloaded NBP message, then it gets to the iPXE screen, fetches the MAC address, I know the NIC has picked up an address over DHCP as I can see it on the server.
The message I get is “No Configuration Methods Succeeded” then it times out and reboots. For now I am making do with changing the BIOS settings to Legacy to image then back to UEFI when imaging completes but its a pain in the proverbial.
Do I need a different boot file? How do I build one that works with this Aquantia NIC chipset?
Fog Version: 1.5.7
Fog Server OS: Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS
Clients: Dell Precision 3930 Rack with Aquantia AQtion 10Gb NIC
Switch & DHCP: Netgear M4300-12x12F
Any idea would be greatly appreciated!
