@george1421 Unfortunately, the option to register via PXE boot was not available for the UEFI booting on the golden image, and it wouldn’t allow me to capture it unless I turned it to Legacy booting option. The golden image machine is a few years old and luckily still had it

RE: Deploy image without Legacy boot
Deploy image without Legacy boot
As the title states, we are trying to deploy an image to a new laptop, however, this is a newer HP model, and does not have Legacy boot on it, and our current method of connecting to fog seems to require Legacy Booting.
Laptop in question: HP Elitebook x360
We have a master copy image that we were able to pull from, but in order for PXE boot to go through properly, we needed to enable the legacy boot, without it, the PXE boot menu just goes to a black screen that says “IPv4 boot” and then loops back to the startup menu screen. When we went to deploy the companies image onto the newer one, we found that the Legacy boot option is missing, and so its doing the previous loop when attempting to select PXE boot.
Can anyone provide any suggestions to either work around this or another way of doing so?
RE: Bitlocker issues
@george1421 Our current solution was to isolate the two(technically 3, since the fog server is running in an Ubuntu Virtualbox) to a completely separate domain.
I brought in a spare personal router, hooked the two physical machines up and set the DHCP settings on that. The DHCP problems are no more, for now at least, and whenever necessary, or available, I can always re-bring these two back online after the image capture is done.
RE: Bitlocker issues
@george1421 That seems to have done the trick. Thank you so much! I have been pulling my hair out these past few days over DHCP, fighting with ISP over DHCP, the Master copy machine not PXE booting properly. I am hoping this is my last roadblock in my fog journey.
I have been fighting this system for a hot minute now and finally have hit a major roadblock that I have no idea how to get past.
This is a brand new system set up, I am an L2 for this company, and we are trying to implement fog as our main method of imaging. We have a machine here that is serving as “the master copy”, and when we finally got it to PXE boot properly (whole sleugh of issues there, but have been resolved, we are 90% sure its not causing this issue). Now that we have it PXE booting right, and even registering, fog can attempt to capture it, but we keep getting the following error:
“Found bitlocker signature in partition /dev/sda4 header. Please disable BITLOCKER before capturing an image. (IsBitlockedPartition)
Args Passed: /dev/sda4”
I have checked and doublechecked, bitlocker is disabled on the machine in question, is there any way to bypass this issue?
