@Tom-Elliott Doing a FULL wipe fixed it for me. Wiping my database and everything and starting over fixed it.

RE: Slow IPXE UEFI?
@george1421 Went and spent some time on it.
About 3-4 seconds for load into ipxe
Everything plugged in, basic UEFI launch - 28 seconds
things unplugged. Video card still in - 29 seconds.
USB EFI boot - Unable to get boot. Tried both making a file and downloading the existing ipxe file from webserver. Stalls at iPXE initializing devices.
Unsure what to do.
USB FOS -
Made from Fog Server- Unable to boot through UEFI, only legacy. (Does that have to do with the fog server running legacy?) Instant, no delay.
Second install from UEFI Ubuntu- UEFI boots. Almost instant boot time.
Both boots from legacy or UEFI both load these at about the same pace.
Takes about 3 seconds to load the kernel and virtual drive
About 4 seconds to get to the network loading
About 3 seconds to load the network
About 1s for the rest.
RE: Slow IPXE UEFI?
It just seems rather strange with such a jump in time. I’m seeing the DHCP packet and download at relatively the same rate as legacy. It’s just the rate at IPXE boot. It just seems strange that the same device that it boots in legacy are adding such a large amount of time to the boot in UEFI.
While I would just not have it in the boot order and do it legacy just for imaging, I’m a student at a college in the Comp Sci department. We have a room of just our computers and at the rate these things get re imaged to different operating systems, its simpler to have in the boot order.
I feel like the next step I should try is disconnecting everything including the hard drive to see if I can see a discernible difference in boot time from either peripheral hardware or if its based off the board itself.
Slow IPXE UEFI?
So I have a dhcp proxy that is pushing out the UEFI and Legacy boot files.
( https://github.com/FOGProject/node-dhcproxy )
Everything works fine no transfer issues, nothing.
However, I am wondering. The time that it takes Legacy to go from ipxe initializing devices is much faster compared to the UEFI version.
It all works, I just find it strange that the UEFI version takes about 8-15 seconds longer compared to the Legacy version.
I’ve tried with multiple versions of the boot files. Has anyone found a quicker boot file? or some sort of setting that would speed up the UEFI boot time? (Other than going back to legacy)
RE: Imaging not starting
@Uncle-Frank After doing some heavy messing around with the images I was deploying it seems that for some reason the size of the image was an issue. Even though every computer has the same hard drive and have all been wiped, lowering the image size by 50 more GB (instead of leaving the 10gb padding I had before) fixed it. I used 50GB as a brute test to see it it worked and its strange that it did. Considering the 1tb drive should have taken over no matter what. So I put the 1tb drive in another computer and it imaged fine in there. It seems to just be a strange image size issue.
