[quote=“Jørn Pettersen, post: 42539, member: 28650”]As I’ve understand it, when choosing something in the startup menu on a client, you actually tell the server what to do at the next reboot?[/quote]
No, not usually. There are a couple of tasks (especially if that particular host is not registered yet) that you can run from the PXE menu, like register the host or quick imaging. That “task” is then run straight away. BUT usually all tasks are being scheduled via the webinterface. The clients are then woken up via WOL and run that scheduled task without any further user interaction (no PXE menu but booting straight into FOG an run the task). But this is only important for you if you use FOG in a network scenario as well.
[quote=“Jørn Pettersen, post: 42539, member: 28650”]Tom, where can I change the image format? If I do so, do I need a newer version of fog to deploy this image again? And last, since you are using partclone to do the imaging, is it possible to deploy this image with another image tool that also use partclone?[/quote]
I am still new to FOG so I don’t know for sure but AFAIK image format can only be set in the database. So you’d need to install phpmyadmin or similar tools to do this. Tom, please correct me if that’s not true.
I reckon that you could deploy that image using clonezilla for example. But it would need some kind of shell script too I’d say. Up to you if you want to dive into clonezilla or changing FOG for your needs.
