Where is the PXE bootfile physically located?

  • Hello, I am working on a little project to make imaging a little more straightforward for our apple computers. Long story short, where are the files that clients boot off of physically located in the server? I found a few locations (specifically I need the snponly.efi file):

    That seems to be the most promising, but I dont know for sure, any help would be appreciated.

    @smoblikat If you get something worked out that might help others, please do tell.

    Secondly for the apple computers that use the T2 chip I have a one off kernel that will boot on them so you can access the hard drives behind the T2 chip. Let me know and I will send you a link.

  • @sebastian-roth Thank you! Thats exactly what I needed. Now if I could just get it to actually grab an address from DHCP…

    EDIT - Which was solved by using snp.efi rather than snponly…

    @Smoblikat There are several files used when a client PXE boots like Linux kernel, PHP files and more. The ones you seem to look for are the iPXE binaries which are in /tftpboot/ directory.

    The ones you found in /home/<user>/fogproject/packages/tftp/ are probably from the extracted installer. Those were copied over to /tftpboot/ when initially installing FOG.
