    Fog problem

    I am running .32 fog as a VM and have uploaded several images to it with no issues. I just finished loading Win 7 a new HP 8200 elite desktop, ran fog prep (even thought it isnt needed with this version of FOG), ran sysprep and rebooted it. I PXE booted to upload it to FOG and everything goes ok and then it throws up an error of no partition found will reboot in one minute. I have searched all over the web with no luck on a solution. TIA

    You could try taking the drive out and uploading the image from another PC that you know works. Then you'll know if the problem is with the PC (and kernel) or with what is on the disk. If you haven't already a tried using an older / newer kernel then that might be worth a look anyway.

    I've had strange issues with some hard drives, and I found running the following arguements for the kernel seems to sort out most issues.

    Code:
    acpi=off noapic nolapic nodma
    Don't ask me what they all mean, I really can't recall now, but I remember researching a simelar issue a while back and constructing this string of arguements based on that.

    You can add kernel arguements under the host details for that machine.

    Edit: In the process of looking that information up, I've just noticed our fog server has been up 242 days - not bad going for a 6 year old server.

    I tried several kernels with no luck, I will try the arguments and if that doesn't work I will try the drive in another system

    Have you tried using a different image format with those PCs (eg using 'Multiple partition image (Not Resizeable)')?
