Windows 7: Re-imaging a HP 210 Netbook with Windows 7 Pro x64 edition

Re-imaging a HP 210 Netbook with Windows 7 Pro x64 edition


I have a question that I'm hoping you can help me with about re-imaging an HP210 net book with Windows x64 pro installed on them. I work for a small school district, and we recently purchased 30 HP 210 net books for use in the classroom. I have an image created in Fog that I would like to bring down to these machines. The problem is that when I boot into ipxe, the machine just keeps restarting and never brings up fog so that I can bring down the image. When we bought the machines, they were setup for Windows 8 pro, and we asked that they be rev'd back to Windows 7 pro. I called HP tech support, and they said that these machines were not meant to have Windows 7 pro on them. Steps that I taken so far is to go into bios and turn on the legacy boot. There are no steps to slow the reboot down, I thought maybe the machine was going into fast boot and that was causing part of the problem. If you have any suggestions, I'd like to hear them, it's frustrating when you can't figure it out!!

Thanks again!! :)

Does the bios have a secure boot option ?

It has to be disabled.

The bios does have a secure boot option, and it's grayed out so that I can't change it back and forth between on and off. Is there a way to go in under a command line, and disable the uefi?? I think that's the issue, but I'm not 100% sure??
