I’m having an issue with newer versions of FOG and HP Compaq 6710b laptops (it also occurs with older versions and updated kernels). When I PXE boot I get the FOG menu but nothing works correctly except memtest86 and the ‘Quick Registration and Inventory’ function.
It appears that everything is running in the background, but will not display on screen (so if I remember the correct order of input and type carefully on a ‘Full Registration and Inventory’ I am pretty sure it would work but have not tested this, only the quick version).
Additionally if I try an upload or deploy it will make it to ~99% but freeze as it finalizes. I watched this from the web interface and from the file size on the server - nothing displays on screen.
To rule out anything custom I set up a fresh Ubuntu 10.04 install with FOG .29 defaults and it works fine.
A fresh install of versions .31 or .32 do not work, and neither does .29 with the newest kernel.
While I wanted to point this out for others to be aware of, has anyone else had and overcome this issue? What did you do to fix it?
I need to run the newer kernel to support HP 8200 Elite models, otherwise I would just stick with the old version. Currently I am running a FOG server in Virtualbox just for this particular laptop until I figure out a better idea that’s not more work than it’s worth.
