Booting a Client into Memtest through Serial Console


  • Hello,

    I am currently trying to run memtest on a client but I am not getting any visual output, presumably because it isn’t booting into serial console. I know how to modify the grub for a bootable memtest usb in order to boot into serial console, however I cannot for the life of me find the config file for this in FOG.

    From my searching the internet for an answer I found that it could be this file that I need to modify: /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default

    However pxelinux.cfg doesn’t exist anywhere on my fog server’s file system. For reference my FOG server is version 1.5.9

    If anybody knows how I can accomplish this task it would be greatly appreciated.

    @matthew11 Totally out of scope question for FOG. FOG hasn’t use syslinux for pxe booting in over 10 years. FOG uses iPXE for a pxe boot loader. There are parallels between the two, but they are not the same.

    With that said, if you have the default config file for syslinux it might be possible to translate that into iPXE syntax, but I would have to see the changes needed to that file.
