    As requested a new post.

    Answering @Sebastian-Roth

    1. The imaging server is still working and has worked for some time. It still works with all other systems we are testing with, including ONE of the new 50 laptops. (Same BIOS and iPXE client versions, same cable etc).

    2. Yes, it looks to be recompiling. ls -l shows me todays date on everything other than 10secdelay and arm64-efi

    3. No custom SSL

    Anything else I can grab for you?

    @nickw So far the only way I can see you get the “permission denied” for some machines but not all is that those machines use different iPXE binaries. Please run the command ls -alR /tftpboot and post output here. I wanna male absolutely sure those were all created at the same time.

    @nickw While this might seem to be the same issue as described in this topic I would still ask you to open a new topic on your own and just cross link to this. It’s usually better to not mix up too many topics and describe in detail how your setup looks like.

    I have just hit this issue

    What has the situation been for you before? Did it ever work before and what happened when it stopped working?

    On reinstall, the installer pauses for a long time now at “Computing iPXE binaries trusting your SSL certificate”. But eventually moves on.

    This tells us it does re-compile the iPXE binaries with the certificate. Please take a look at /tftpboot and tell us what date the files have? Just wanna make sure the get installed properly.

    Do you have a custom SSL certificate?

    The strange thing for us also is that we recently got 50 of the same laptop for a client, and only the first one images and boots correctly. Same BIOS and settings.

    Do you mean this single one does properly PXE boot? I cannot imagine this to be a model/host specific issue from what I know about this.



  • Hello,

    I have just hit this issue, and the fix below is not resolving it. I am also testing now on the latest GitHub build, and the same issue is occuring.

    Very strange, is there anything else we can try?
