Thats the graphical menu, did you have the same problem with the text one?
for a simple text menu the default file will look like this:
Having a look into I've not seen any mention in the pxelinux documentation about using password menus with the graphical menus (obviously must be possible if FOG is using it). Also your password looks encrypted, it could be a character it dosnt like, in the examples ive seen there plain txt passwords. I'd save a copy of your original default file that you posted above and see what happens with a plain txt password in txt menu.Quote:

I know what it is now! you have to change the password mannually in the default file it dosnt work for me inside fog, its an MD5 hash something like $0$123456789 just change it to a plain text password and it works.
also if you get php errors showing up or unable to connect to TFTP / FTP server follow these instructions:
For Versions Before 0.24
This seems to be caused by a password issue,
1. From the fog management interface, go to users.
2. Reset the fog user password.
3. Click the "I" icon - "Other Information"
4. Click "Fog Settings" in the menu on the left
5. Replace the FOG_TFTP_FTP_PASSWORD and the FOG_NFS_FTP_PASSWORD fields under FOG settings with
your Linux fog user password. (Seems like FOG_NFS_FTP_PASSWORD is gone for ver .24).
For Versions .24 +
* Reset the local password for user fog with: [sudo] passwd fog
* In management front end, go to Storage Management -> All Storage Nodes
* Click on DefaultMember
* Change the Management Password to match the password you just changed.
* Then go to Other Information and change FOG_TFTP_FTP_PASSWORD also.

Thanks for that. Unfortunately I am still getting the same error message.
I've set up FOG on my laptop and have another laptop wired with an ethernet cable to test it, i can now get to my PXE menu and choose from the options such as memtest, quick host registration etc, i was having a fatal error: hard disk not found error at work, but ive rebuilt the kernel (bzimage) to include loads of extra storage drivers and modules, this now works and i dont get this error. However when ive set FOG up on my laptop i had to set up DHCP server and ive messed up the IP settings, fog still runs from the browser at localhost/fog/management but when i try to do things i get ftp login errors, hopefully this shouldnt be a problem at work I can just copy my bzImage over and my pxelinux.cfg directory over (as i installed ubuntu ontop of windows and the TFTPBOOT is in the root aka C:\ so it left my original.
ANYWAY, i now have a problem in that after selecting quick clone, or quick upload or whatever its called from the PXE menu I put in my password it loads up then asks me again for a username and pass, which dosnt work, it wont accept anything, Is this the same problem you'r having or is it the not accepting your login at the PXE menu?
If so i'll have a root around for you and see if theres a way to change passwords in the mysql, theres a config.php that contains some passwords. It might be easier to re-install FOG and see if you have the same problem.
also check this thread if you havn't already seen it:
If you are running SIS900 cards then look at the thread where I had a problem here. It may help fix yours.
You are getting the TFTP timeout right? If not ignore me, or try it anyways.
Odds are this happened to you after a reboot, in which case what happened was, when your tftp service attempted to start, your NIC had not gotten an address yet, so it was set to 0.0.0.0. So now what you need to do is start your TFTP service, first stop the service with:
sudo stop tftpd-hpa
then restart it with:
sudo start tftpd-hpa
Then try a pxe boot again, I think you will see different results.
