I’m currently hitting my head against a brick wall with regards to a FOG imaging issue.
We are currently using 1.5.9 RC1, i think.
I am trying to image a cloudbook (Stonebook Cloud C10A) via a USB network adapter (Startech USB310000SPTB). The cloudbook doesn’t have a wired ethernet connection.
I have managed to get this working at some point in the past, but for the life of me can’t work out how. I have the USB adapter set up as an intermediary where i register the host’s wifi adapter manually in fog and use the USB adapter as a dummy host to do the imaging.
The laptop will boot as far as the FOG menu (most of the time, see later). (Screenshot 1).
However, the USB Dummy Host is not being detected within the menu and the menu says it is an unregistered host.
That would be ok, but when I try to image or run debug mode from there, the process gets stuck on downloading the bzImage file at 0%.
Occasionally, the machine will hang on downloading the relevant files to boot into fog at all, and refind has also been inconsistent when loading in order to boot from the built in ssd.
I have also experienced this downloading issue with another PC which i managed to resolve by using the Legacy PXE boot option. I do not have that option with this cloudbook.
The cloudbook is EFI booting, and we have nearly 1000 other PCs imaged using FOG that work pretty reliably for the most part.
Hopefully someone with much more knowledge of how this works than me can give me some pointers. I am quite familiar with fog having learnt through trial and error over many years, but haven’t quite got my head around the sequence of events in the background.
