    I have Imaged Lenovo G560's G550's Sl510s and Edge 15 laptops all with windows 7 on Fog with no problems, now they sent me new laptops E525's that come up with a blank screen and flashing courser.
    I have made 2 new Images and both with same result??? I do not understand why since I have tried 2 times why its not working. also the newest kernel will not DL.

    Spencer,

    Open terminal (assuming default installation)
    type
    Code:
    cd /tftpboot/fog/kernel/
    
    Do a directory listing "ls" you should see "bzImage"

    you want to rename that or make a folder called backup and put it in there
    Code:
    mv bzImage bzImage_backup
    
    May need to use sudo mv bzImage bzImage_backup

    Now use wget and download the new kernel

    Code:
    wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/freeghost/files/Kernels/Kernel-3.2.4.core/Kernel-3.2.4.core/download
    
    Again you might need "sudo" in front of wget. If that doesn't work you might have to download it manually from http://sourceforge.net/projects/freeghost/files/Kernels/Kernel-3.2.4.core/

    if it did work using "ls" should now list Kernel-3.2.4.core in the folder we need to rename it bzImage

    Code:
    mv Kernel-3.2.4.core bzImage
    
    Again may need sudo.

    Try booting a client device now.

    If it fails you can undo what we did by doing this

    Code:
    mv bzImage bzImage_failed
    mv bzImage_backup bzImage

    I also posted this as well a couple of time's in various threads:

    1. 3.2.4 can be downloaded from here, http://sourceforge.net/projects/freeghost/files/Kernels/Kernel-3.2.4.core/Kernel-3.2.4.core/download

    2. Then you need to backup bzImage in /tftpboot/fog/kernel. so I renamed mine bzImage.backup (If this doesn't work, either log into the computer under the FOG account, or chmod the folder)

    3. When you copy the 3.2.4 kernel to this location rename it to bzImage (note that the case is important) and you should be all set.
