That’s a dang good guess! I just used Fog as the user since I wanted to keep it all the same. I’ll create a new one then. Probably explains some other problems I’ve had haha.
Got it all setup and it’s working great! It’s even imaging the new Lenovo laptop no prob like I thought it would! Thanks for the help guys.
also one weird quirk. Any time I upgrade FOG it always changes my user password on Ubuntu and doesn’t allow me to login. I have no idea what it changes it to. I have to go through the adv startup for Ubuntu to change the password back. Is there any way to keep that from happening?
I was looking to update my FOG Server since I was having trouble imaging some of the newer Lenovo laptops like the E575. Usually updating FOG has fixed it for me in the past.
The problem this time is I can’t seem to get it to upgrade right using the Trunk GIT method. I installed GIT and followed the directions but it said something was already in root/fogproject/ (makes sense since it’s not a new install), and then I tried the upgrade instructions but it said this was not a GIT repository for this folder or no GIT was found… something like that. I figured this might be because I don’t remember using GIT when I upgraded last time.
I’m not sure where to go from here. It’s probably been close to a year or more since my last upgrade. It’s possible that this is so old I need to do a new install and migrate? Not sure.
Thanks for the help Sebastian. Yeah, I meant AHCI
I followed what some others suggested on the spiceworks forums and upgrading to the Trunk version. I made sure to factory reset my bios settings so it was uniform with my source computer (where I didn’t mess with anything) and it booted up! Everything works great and the windows key applied all by itself like it should. I’m a happy
I’ve googled the heck out of this and found some others that were having issues with the lenovo m93z desktop with fog in older versions, but nothing recent. I saw someone had success with a kernel here, but that was from 2 years ago and figured this would have been fixed by now in current version (maybe not?)
My problem is I got everything the way I wanted on one of the machines and did a upload to the fog server (I used fog prep, no sysprep, it’s worked on everything else I’ve imaged). I downloaded it to one of the other m93z’s and it won’t boot… just blinks at post and can’t find the MBR or something. I’ve tried doing a clean install of Win 7 x64 and that’s great until it doesn’t recognize the built in UEFI product key for Windows 7 so I’m back to square one.
I went into BIOS and tried switching from ACHI to EDI (nope, but did allow me to boot when I did the clean install) tried changing from UEFI to Auto and Legacy first (same thing). Tried pretty much ever possible combination. I even put my x64 Win 7 USB in to try and do a startup repair to get the MBR restored and it’ll sit working on it for 2 hours each time and then give up.
Anyone else have any ideas I can try?
I posted this in spiceworks as well.
