Ok so I am a bit stuck I am trying to help out on of my clients with a pretty simple setup. We currently have a fog server setup and working fine. Windows deployments are working fine. We need to be able to deploy Mac's now. I have looked over the documentation from the Fog Project. However I think this assumes that you use the Fog Server as the DHCP server. We are using our Windows server as the DHCP server. Can anyone help me understand this?

It looks like Ubuntu DHCP can apply different PXE boot settings depending on what machine requests DHCP.

I think only Server 2012 DHCP can offer that. So unless the Macs are on a different DHCP scope, you may be stuck.

Otherwise, it just seems like you add the appropriate boot image filename to the DHCP Scope Options

Option 067 would have "macnbi-i386/booter" for Intel based MACs

I am running a 2012 DHCP Server.  67 is set to run pxelinux.0 as that is required by Fog.

The 67 is the part you need to change for OSX installs. The pxelinux.0 file is used by Windows and *nix to PXE boot.

So you will need to make a rule on Server 2012, for any DHCP requests that match vendor-class-identifier "AAPLBSDPC/i386", option 067 will be "macnbi-i386/booter"

That did not work we had to go with a different network VLAN.
