RE: Deployment Mistake??
I will not be able to get into Audit mode because I cannot get past the black screen at boot up. Just to clarify, I deployed the original uploaded image form first laptop, down to the second laptop. Now upon booting the second laptop it goes straight to a black screen with some error message.
Are you stating to press CNTR, SHFT, F3 [U]at the black screen[/U] and this will take me into windows, even though there is a black screen at the bootup?
PS Thank you for helping with this,…trying to be a hero for my boss at work & telling him FOG is the way to go.
What to do? I have FOG 0.32 running on Ubuntu 10.04. All is well there. I have 5 HP 4430 Pro books. These all came with Windows 7. I successfully uploaded an image to fog from the first laptop. Then simply deployed that image back to the same laptop. I then created or registered a second laptop as a host, set it to PXE boot. I then set a task to deploy the original uploaded image to the second laptop. All seemed to be well until the second laptop rebooted. Second laptop now has black screen stating something like “no disk found”(something like this, I am at home and not in front of work PC’s).
These laptops all have the OEM “7”. and I do not have a OS disk.
Any ideas on the problem?
[B]UPDATE: [/B][B]'A disk read error occurred Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart. [/B]This is the error message that occurs.
Ok, thanks. I have a Windows 7 image that took an hour to upload, and then took 5 hours to deploy. The Windows 7 image had the 100MiB partition & 232 GiB on data partition. I used “Single disk - Multi partition”. Should I have use “Single Partition- NTFS resizable” instead?
RE: Image deployment time?
[quote=“Sk00t3r, post: 1774, member: 430”]First thing I would check is the Network your behind. Do you have 10/100/1000 nics in all the machines (fog and client)? are you behind a router, hub or switch? Uploading I get about 3GiB/min and download is about 4.6 GiB/min[/quote]
client PC is GiB & the FOG server is 100MiB. I am behind an HP network switch 100Mib. My download speed is 273.39 MiB???
Image deployment time?
FOG is sending Window7 image down to computer. It is thus far been deploying for 3 hours & 20 minutes.
The data to be copied is 69 GB & is at 55 GB after 3 hours 20 minutes.???
[B]Seem like a long time to anyone.[/B]???
Any help or advice on how to shorten this process is greatly appreciated.
232 GB size of disk
RE: "Downloaded WDSNBP"??
[quote=“mtb3, post: 1751, member: 601”]Thanks…in my state of hurry up and test, I mistakenly typed 191 and not 192.
Image is now uploading.
I set up the image in FOG to be Windows 7, Multi-Partition, single disk (not resizable)
…original image to upload is a 232 GB partition with the extra 100MB partition.
Concern is that the image is [B]uploading now & that it looks like it is going to end up being 68.93 GB.?[/B]
Is this the best way to do a Windows 7 image? …and is this the smallest I can expect the image to be after upload.
I have read that you can use the Single Partition (NTFS - resizable)
PS. Does the deployment of image take longer than the upload. I am sending the image back to the original
computer now and seems to be taking twice as long to download.[/quote]
[B]Image deployment taking tremendously long time. In two hours and 37 minutes downloaded 43 GB, with 25 GB to go.???[/B]
