Error loading O/S
Used fog yesterday to multicast a suite of identical pc's. Out of 26 only 2 successfully booted to windows after the task completed, the others just say error loading operating system. I've just deployed the image to a single pc and it still doesnt work.
Any ideas? Image must be fine, worth trying a remote wipe of the hdd first maybe?

Abit of intense googling found a fix, incase anybody runs into this problem.. You have to change the hdd mode in the bios from auto to LBA

This is a common problem, you should always do this before fogging a machine.

Depends how you Sysprep it!

Has anyone had this problem with an IBM Thinkpad T60?
I have a batch that I'm trying to image and they just hang rather than booting the OS. There's no hard disk mode option in the BIOS (that I can find at any rate).
