RE: [K12OSN] client fails to boot all of the way up



You must not use the HP T5525 client.  This is a documented problem with that specific client.  I don't know what the difference is between the other T5000 clients.  I use two other T5000 models and they work great.  It just happens with the T5525.  Loading an older LTSP kernel fixes the problem, so it has to do with an incompatibility with the newer kernels and this model.  Unfortunately, HP has discontinued this model.  I am trying to get them to release an updated BIOS that may fix the problem.

I use a variety of hp thin clients so i cant believe the problem is
with them ,have you tried running a crossover cable directly between the
server and the client ?
