    Problem with HP Pro 3015MT

    Hi guys

    We have an easter job of sorting out our music tech room with some new pcs.

    We got these HP mini towers, they are not getting past the fog boot up menu for registration (or anything else). I fear that the SATA controller is unsupported. It throws up an error along the lines of "ehci_hcd request interrupt 14 failed"

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Go into the bios and change the disk mode to compatibility.

    Tried that already I'm afraid, the setting comes under 'SATA Controller' in the bios, it won't boot fog for either option under 'SATA Controller Mode'. (Those options are IDE and AHCI)

    If its any help, its an Nforce SATA controller, I can't find anything on the FOG Knowledge base regarding compatibility for this.

    Have you tried swapping the boot kernel around? The kitchensink ones usually do the trick.

    Hi, We've just got a few HP Pro 3010MT's and am getting the same error, I'm not a *nix expert, but when you say swap the kernel around, how do I go about that?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    download the kitchensink kernel from sourceforge and add it to the fog kernel section of your tftp server
    alter the host definition of the troublesome machine to point to the kitchen sink kernel you just got.

    Thanks for your help Geoff, but even with the new kernel installed it still can't find the hard disk on the HP machine. any idea's what to try next or is this pc just not compatible with FOG?

    Can you alter the SATA mode in the bios?

    Hi, Just changed SATA mode to be IDE and it's looking a bit more promising, it has at least gone a bit further now, so we'll see how it goes. Thanks for the help with this, really appreciate it.
