Hyper V and Pxe boot to Fog problems



  • @paulman9 This worked for me! I could boot to do a Quick Registration, and I’m currently capturing my golden image!

    Thank you very much!



  • @lukebarone Here is the one I built from source that is working for us

    Same screen with the second file as well. Still stalls out, so it does not go past that.

    @tom-elliott 10-4. I built the wrong kernel with the rom-o-matic, don’t trust and old guy’s memory on what he should be doing.

    In the first go around I just built a test version to see if it might work.


  • Senior Developer

    @george1421 the Paramus command needs to be enabled.


  • Moderator

    @lukebarone OK well then I’m the lost one. I built the wrong frick’n boot loader. I’ll have to go back and start over and build the undionly.kpxe one. Sorry I’m trying to do too many things at one. I’ll work on the bios version one over night.



  • @george1421 said in Hyper V and Pxe boot to Fog problems:

    @paulman9 OK great, that means that the currently shipping version of iPXE does resolve your issue. I suspected that it would not work 100%, but what did work was getting past the initializing devices. I’ll take a look at creating the full undionly.kpxe boot kernel in a while for you to test. But for now it looks like we have a path forward.

    @Developers be aware that the current version of iPXE addresses hyper-v booting. I’ve seen this in a few threads lately.

    I’m at this stage. The params: command not found issue. I saw earlier in the thread that people were trying on Gen 1 VMs, which would be BIOS-compatible. If you need, I can start a new thread?

    I’m using the custom undionly_546dd.kpxe file you uploaded on your Google Drive to get this far.

    @lukebarone Ok lets backup here. The issue we were trying to solve is pxe booting into uefi mode. The image above makes me think we are in bios mode.



  • @george1421 I get “PXE-E79: NBP is too big to fit in free base memory”. The VM is Windows 7, on Gen 1 Hyper-V.

    @lukebarone Can/will you paste in the link in my last post into your browser. That will instruct the rom-o-matic site to create a new ipxe.efi where the certificate stuff is turned off. FOG doesn’t currently use the certificate code at all. I’m interested in see if having the code turned off works for you too. Once the rom-o-matic site finishes it will present you will a new ipxe.efi to download. Swap that file out for the FOG supplied image and test.

    In the end we are waiting for the iPXE folks to fix the issue with the certificate code running on hyper-v



  • Is there any update on this? Or are we waiting on the iPXE crew to fix it?

  • Microsoft Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V Core (10.0.14393.0) and Microsoft Windows Server 2016 Standard (10.0.14393.0) are both fine.

    @robertd At the moment if you want to use hyper-v on win10, then use 1703. Or use hyper-v on 2012 server.



  • So glad I found this thread. I have been trying to figure out what was going on with our setup. We just upgraded to 1.5 stable and decided to begin building our images from VMs instead of physical machines, however we came across issues with Windows 10 (1709) hyper-v host and getting stuck at initializing devices. Should we move to a different hyper visor?

    @sudburr Thanks heaps for testing this and letting us know!!

    @paulman9 said in Hyper V and Pxe boot to Fog problems:

    #define DOWNLOAD_PROTO_HTTPS
    #define IMAGE_TRUST_CMD
    #define CERT_CMD

    Would you be able to break this further down? Are you able to compile a binary without IMAGE_TRUST_CMD and CERT_CMD? Should work I think as those are only commands added to the iPXE command line interface.

    As well you might want to compile a debug binary: make bin/undionly.kpxe EMBED=ipxescript DEBUG=https to see if that gives us more information on where exactly it hangs.



  • Bad news everyone!

    The same problem exists also in Windows Server Insider Preview build 17093.



  • Alrighty then. Hyper-V running on Windows 10v1709.
    Gen2 (UEFI) can network boot ipxe.efi just dandily and image.
    Gen1 (Legacy) can network boot with undionly.kpxe but sits indefinitely at iPXE initialising devices…

    hmm …

    • hangs after “GATEWAY IP:”
      default.ipxe

    • hangs after “iPXE initialising devices…”
      intel.kkpxe
      intel.kpxe
      intel.pxe
      realtek.kkpxe
      realtek.kpxe
      realtek.pxe
      undionly.kkpxe
      undionly.kpxe
      unidonly.pxe

    • hangs after “WARNING: Using legacy NIC wrapper on”
      ipxe.kkpxe
      ipxe.kpxe
      ipxe.pxe

    So all I have accomplished is to confirm the problem as a third party.



  • There is also the option of running the free Microsoft Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V Core (10.0.14393.0) as your hypervisor.

    Okay, since I misinterpreted (ie: skimmed ) the OP, I will see what I can reproduce with Windows 10v1709 as the hypervisor.
