FOG UEFI USB booting -snponly.efi / snp.efi
I have used the following tutorial below to create a bootable USB disk, which works well but it uses the ipxe.efi file. I want to try add / replace that file or create a new menu entry for HP laptops and use snponly.efi / snp.efi but I cannot seem to make it work.
snponly.efi works if I put it into the bootfilename .
Here is the link to the tutorial I was using [https://forums.fogproject.org/topic/7727/building-usb-booting-fos-image/21?page=2]
@zaboxmaster Just a bit of clarity that tutorial creates a usb bootable flash drive that uses grub as the menu manager not iPXE. We might use that if ipxe has a hardware compatibility issue with the target system. Or the system doesn’t have a network adapter that supports ipxe.
This tutorial here uses iPXE on a usb drive to jump into iPXE. https://forums.fogproject.org/topic/6350/usb-boot-uefi-client-into-fog-menu-easy-way In this case it uses ipxe.efi file that is renamed to bootx64.efi . You could use this process with snponly.efi or snp.efi. Just rename the file accordingly. In your case you probably want to use snp.efi. Consider where ipxe.efi contains all known drivers for most network adapters, snp and snponly only contains the snp network driver that uses the network adapters built in firmware. But that should work.
Reading between the lines here, you might want to update ipxe to the latest version to support newer hardware than FOG 1.5.9 when it was release: https://forums.fogproject.org/topic/15826/updating-compiling-the-latest-version-of-ipxe
@george1421 Thank you so much … I updated the to the latest ipxe and it sorted out the issue .
