PXE Booting & TFTP



  • Hi all,

    Trying to get a PC to PXE boot to the server but I get the error below:

    PXE-T01: The specified file was not found.
    PXE-E3B: TFTP Error - File Not Found.
    PXE-M0F: Exiting Broadcom PXE ROM.

    I have set the scope options on the subnet for my floor (66 and 67).

    Setting this up at work. We have a DHCP server. I’ve tried various combinations on the install (latest version) with Ubuntu desktop 12.10. Anyone know how I can get this working?

    Thank you!



  • Although it sounds like DHCP options are correct, it might be worth checking it using Wireshark on the client PC. If you filter the capture to ports 67 & 68 (UDP but it doesn’t matter if you capture both TCP and UDP), then perform an ipconfig /release, ipconfig /renew or simply disconnect/reconnect the network cable. Within the captured packets you should be able to see the DHCP options and that pretty rules out DHCP configuration issues.



  • Any other ideas? I have re-installed fog on Ubuntu 10.04 and still the same problem. I can retrieve the pxelinux.0 file if I tftp from the windows machine. I named the local acount as administrator on the Ubuntu machine as I read that calling it fog might be problematic.



  • Hi Moss,

    It is indeed a zero.



  • Have you double checked option 67 to make sure the names specified correctly? pxelinux.0, using a zero not an O?
