Does anyone use a FOG server for image deployment? I have tried to set one up and get the login screen when I put the ip address into a machine, however I cant get any machines to PXE boot. Am I missing something?
I have 066 FOGSERVER and 067 pxelinux.0 set in DHCP but it still wont work!! Any help would be appreciated.

We have one here, still going strong after 6 years. Do your PCs attempt to PXE boot? Do they give an error message when trying? You should get a menu with the logo and a few options if it loads correctly - make sure that you have a recent kernel set in FOG that will have a wider range of drivers installed. Our current kernel happily images Ivy Bridge and AMD E-Series machines so fairly up to date.

They don't really attempt to they try and boot from network then don't do anything, just go straight through and boot to windows. I have built one before successfully at my last school which is even more annoying! Cant figure out what it wont work!!

can you get into the machine boot menu and force it to try PXE?
Is PXE boot turned on in your BIOS?
@3gs-tech how do you update the kernel set in fog?

Sounds like the client may not be getting a response from the DHCP server. Have you checked the DHCP server for the MAC address of the client to see if an address is requested or provided?
You may need to use wireshark to see what requests the client is sending out and what the server is responding with (if anything). You may need an ip-helper if you are PXE booting across VLANs.

Spanning tree? If the negotiation of your spanning tree isn't fast enough, you'll miss the window to network boot.

Try the IP address instead of host name of the fog server in your DHCP scope 066 setting.

Go to Other Information tab in FOG interface, click on Kernel Updates, select a new kernel. You can also play about with the current active kernel by moving them about in your SCP client of choice.
