Goal

Cannot use Imaging on Pentium class machine

Fact

Novell ZENworks for Desktops 4.0.1 - ZfD4.0.1

Novell ZENworks 6.5 Desktop Management - ZfD6.5

Novell ZENworks Imaging

Symptom

If you boot into ZENworks imaging on a Pentium class machine (for example a Dell Gn) it will not boot Linux, and you cannot perform any imaging.

Machine hangs after "Freeing unused kernel memory 104k"

Change

Installed ZFD401_IR5 or ZFD401_IR6, or ZEN65SP1

Fix

For ZENworks 6.5 Desktop Management, fixed in ZENworks 6.5 SP2

For ZENworks for Desktops 4.0.1, this will not be fixed, since it requires a new kernel plus changes that are in ZENworks 6.5 Desktop Management

Note

Note: this only affects the original Pentium class machines: Pentium Pro and Pentium II, etc. are unaffected.
