HP usb boot hangs

  1. 5 weeks ago

    I have a HP probook 440 g4 that when i try to boot into clonedeploy off a usb, I get to choose clone deploy but after that i am greeted with a blank screen. It is happening to all of my hp machines but my lenovo's and VM work after choosing clonedeploy? Any ideas?

    It was an HP issue. I just got it to work. I had to set secure boot to legacy enabled and secure boot disabled.

    Have you tried a different kernel, what kernel did you use?

  3. I have tried 4.13.2 x64 , 4.10.1 x64 and 4.5 x64 all just give me a blank screen on the hp machines.

    have you tried building the iso and use rufus to copy to usb?

  5. Yes i have done that, with all 3.

    Not sure what options are left, is it EFI or legacy?
    When you select CloneDeploy, nothing flashes at all, it just goes immediately blank?

  7. It's using uefi and it just goes blank.

    Are you getting the grub boot menu or pxelinux?

  9. I get to the GNU Grub with 3 options in the attached picture. Boot to local, clonedeploy, and client console.

    When you get to the boot screen highlight clonedeploy and press e
    find consoleblank=0 and add nomodeset leaving a space between them
    press f10 to boot

  11. Still comes up blank after adding nomodeset.

    Running out of ideas. Here are a few more kernel options that sometimes help.
    noapic - it is spelled right
    acpi=off - so is this

    vga=normal
    vga=794
