Migrated: HP Elitebook 8760w with IGEL Universal Desktop OS Version 4.10.100

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012


today we migrated a HP Elitebook 8760w with the IGEL Universal Desktop OS 4.10.100/4.11.100 (issue see below) and the result is ok.

WiFi: Working
Ethernet: Working
Audio: Working incl. HDMI Output
GFX Card (AMD FirePro M5950): VESA mode only, no native driver support (Single Screen / VESA max. Resolution 1920×1080 tested and working)
USB Ports: USB 3.0 (the two ports in front of the left side) not working, 3x USB 2.0 Ports working fine
Touchpad: IM PS/2 Synaptics Touchpad is working with 4.10.100 but not with 4.11.100
Webcam: Not available for this device, external WebCam is working fine if connected thru one of the working USB 2.0 ports for ICA Sessions with XenApp 6.5
Multimedia results: Very good with HDX Flashredirection (HD Quality) and also multimedia redirection.

In general the result is good, iam not happy with the VESA mode but the Laptop comes with an Intel i5 CPU and can easily compensate this for multimedia output. The max. resolution of 1920×1080 is working so we have no problem with the missing native GFX driver support. USB 3.0 support would be fine but i think this is only a question of time.. 🙂 The touchpad issue with the 4.11.100 is a pain but i hope IGEL will include missing drivers here in the future, so we have to use the working 4.10.100 until this is fixed; it’s ok for the user so it’s also ok for me at the moment. 🙂

So if you are looking for a Laptop based Thin Client (…or call it Mobile Thin Client/Mobile Cloud Client)… it might be a deal.


P.S.: This is without any guarantee, you have to test this by your own too!

Successfull migrated: Samsung NC191

Monday, December 10th, 2012

Hello Folks,

today i migrated a Samsung NC191 with the IGEL Universal Desktop OS Version 4.11.100. I got everything running including Network Card (Gigabit), Dual Monitoring/GFX Card (Advanced License required from IGEL) and all USB Ports; so the device works very well for me. Regarding the fact that this device is coming with a 19″ display it’s maybe a solution for users looking out for a 19″ all in one solution.


The Hardware is based on a AMD G-T40N CPU and comes with 2GB of RAM and 4GB HDD (SSD), the GFX chipset is a AMD Radeon HD 6200 Series device. This Information is of course without any warranty and you have to test it also by your own too.

Note: IGEL Universal Desktop OS 4.11.100

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012


i just got an issue with the new IGEL Universal Desktop OS Firmware 4.11.100 on a none official supported 3rd party device, so i want to strongly recommend to test this in advance.

In my case the system did not boot anymore after the update to 4.11.100 (Hangs in the boot screen), so it’s very easy to reproduce; if this happens also to you: reinstall the Version 4.10.100 with the IGEL UDC installation stick and don’t roll out the firmware Universal Desktop OS 4.11.100 to your environment in this case!



P.S.: Please make sure that the UDC License is available on your UDC Memory or in your UMS Server, otherwise a new license will be fetched during the re-installation!

Update: It looks that some support for INTEL BX/DX/ZX chipsets is gone, also the Installation with the new UDC fails and the software is not able to detect any harddisk. So if you have migrated an Intel Pentium II/III or Celeron device you should serious test the new Version 4.11.100 and report any issues here to IGEL if you got the same behavior.

Update2: One other issue, Laptop Touchpad’s like the IM PS/2 Synaptics Touchpad which is used in some HP Elitebooks seams also to not work with the 4.11.100. Use the 4.10.100 Firmware if these or similar pad’s did not work anymore on your migrated Laptop’s!

Hello folks,

HP t510

Dual Monitoring (cloned/extension): Yes/Yes

IGEL UDC (Universal Desktop OS) with Asus EeePc 1011PX

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

Hello Folks,

today i’ve tested the IGEL UDC solution together with the Asus EeePC 1011PX ( and it works great, i’ve used the IGEL Universal Desktop OS Version 4.08.500 and only the Installation was tricky; the onboard network card is not supported and the IGEL UDC won’t install the Universal Desktop OS. So i need to install the UDC in a virtual computer first, spoof the MAC-ID, deploy the License from the UDC Token thru the IGEL Universal Management Suite and copy then the license file to me EeePC by hand.

Asus Eee PC 1011PX
To get the IGEL License for the device i enabled the onboard WiFi Chip (it works… WPA/WPA2 tested) and then i was able to assign the license via the IGEL Universal Management Suite (i’ve used the official IGEL UDC Token with three advanced Licenses from the Partner NFR Kit on it and i still need to do a trick with an other virtual client with a spoofed Mac-ID (from the WiFi chipset) to finally create a license file for my WiFi Mac-ID). It would be really great if IGEL allows or better recognize the WiFi Card for the UDC Token to create a license too. On the other side, if you know the Mac-ID you can get a ready to use license File from IGEL directly but you can’t deploy it thru the UMS without tricks regarding the fact that the UMS will also always take the onboard network card…. So you need to copy it by hand like i do in this case. Please IGEL: Make this more simple a none technical and well trained person can’t do this without manuals! Good after loosing time for the Mac-ID problem i proceed to the next tests including the results.First i’ve enabled the option to enable the native Graphic Card driver in System->Custom…->Features->Enable native graphic Driver support and it works again incl. Dual Monitor support – cloned and expansion. Great and one funny thing, you can´t select the resolution 1024×600 in the IGEL Setup but if you keep the “Automatic detection” setting it will work in the native 1024×600 resolution. No i’ve tried to use the Audio Card, so i’ve done a Browser Setup incl. the flash player which works out of the box for Audio Playback.To test the internal Webcam i’ve installed the Skype Static Binaries via the IGEL Custom Partition feature and also this works incl. Webcam support; means it should also work with HDX Webcam redirection. When i’ve done a Skype call also the inbuild microphone works fine out of the box.The internal SATA Controller is also recognized by the system and the inbuild SD Reader works fine too.

So if you need a mobile thin client without the need to use the onboard ethernet controller, you really have a cool option here. Of course Asus can change this device and i can’t guarantee that this will work always in the same way (don’t blame me). But it’s worth to check this out if you’ve a requirement like this.



P.S.: For my test i used a USB Memory Stick as target to install the Universal Desktop OS , a lot of people don´t know that they can select a USB Memory too during the UDC Installation and don´t have to wipe the harddisk. It makes it much more simple if you want to test the UDC and you can also prepare a bunch of USB Memory Sticks if you want to allow people to use the OS installed to the hdd or to provide the ability to switch the OS on demand-like on my netbook. 🙂
