    I believe you need to specify the full path to the kernel file relative to the TFTP root in the machines profile in the FOG console. So the 'Host Kernel' section would look like:

    Code:
    fog/kernel/Kernel-2.6.29.2.kitchensink
    Alternatively you might want to replace the default 'bzImage' file with your new kernel. Simply backup the bzImage file and rename your 'kitchensink' kernel to bzImage.

    I just tired the rename of the bzImage funnily enough, but I still get a fatal error about the HDD not being found.

    Ive also tried specifying /dev/sda, but that doesnt seem to have helped either

    Ah yes I was wrong, however its interesting to note reports on the forum that is you just specify the kernel name you get an error like "/tftpboot/fog/kernels/XX (cannot find XX Kernel)

    What mode is the HD running under, SATA? IDE?

    Do you have an option in BIOS to run SATA in compatibility/IDE emulation or anything like that? (seen this called a few different things in different BIOS)

    The only options i have are ACHI, RAID and ATA. Ive tried all bar RAID, but to no avail.

    Thanks for helping!

    Just as a followup to this thread - we've been having problems imaging machines and getting:
    Code:
    Buffer I/O error on device sda,
    etc.

    appending irqpoll to the kernel parameters fixed this problem
