I really appreciate your patience! Hopefully this will keep me busy for a while :)
Man, I know you're getting sick of me... But now I've added the computer, created the image, and started the computer task -> upload. Then it boots PXE to 4.5 (32 bit) kernel and goes into that same loop again?? Now what have I done?? I can't seem to get it to boot to 64 bit kernel.
you really are a genius. thanks!
So sorry - but I'm not sure how to do that?? I'm guessing something needs to be changed on clone deploy server? Or are you wanting me to boot to PE CD with 64 bit kernel?
okay, so I got an ethernet adapter that's allowing me to boot PXE to my CloneDeploy server on a local private network. It boots to CloneDeploy Boot Menu - Client Console / Add Computer / On Demand / Diagnostics.
It doesn't matter which option is selected you get:
loading kernels 4.9.8
loading images initrd.xz
Then it goes into an endless cycle with a bunch of text that includes:
info: rcu_sched detected stalls on CPUs/tasks:
o2-...:(1GPs behind) idle=....
it goes on. there's a screenshot attached in case that would help??
Trying to image Dell Lattitude 5175 Tablet. It has one usb A port and one usb C port. I have a dock that plugs into usb A on the tablet - and in turn has 3 usb A ports, Ethernet, vga, hdmi ports. I can boot to cd (usb plugged into dock) but once booted the tablet can't see anything that's plugged into the dock. So no external drive, no Ethernet. What am I missing? Is there a way to get to my CloneDeploy server wireless?
I really hope I haven't wasted your time... but here's the update - I pulled another brand new probook650 OOB and it connected fine. I used same switch / port / cable / everything. I then plugged in the trouble box - same platform / switch / port etc etc. - and it worked. And trust me that over the last several days I've reseated all cables in question several times...
again, sorry to have wasted your time. but I'm very thankful for all your help.
I wonder if I have a flappy port on the switch or an 'iffy' cable / connector??
anyway thank you so much :)
Started off with 4.5 - then from there jumped to 4.10.1
I have a few other Probook 650 - will pull and try.
as far a switch / cables /etc - it's the same hdwr that I use for countless other 'things' that I do with many different pc's / devices - like a lab environment. So the hdwr is known to be good...
anyway, I'll try with another box and will update.
you've been extremely patient and helpful - very much appreciated!
Attached - :)
