PXE boot chainloading to WDS


  • Developer

    Hi all,

    we currect have FOG and WDS co-existing at the moment until we completely transfer everything to FOG, we’ve been able to chainload from WDS PXE to FOG PXE menu however trying to chainload from FOG PXE to the WDS PXE does not work, can anyone help?

    This works and reaches FOG on WDS Server PXE Menu:
    [COLOR=#ff0000]# Option 3 - Pass Thru 2 FOG[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#ff0000]LABEL fog[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#ff0000] MENU LABEL ^FOG Imaging Server[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#ff0000] MENU PASSWD[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#ff0000] kernel pxechn.c32[/COLOR]

    [COLOR=#ff0000] APPEND IPADDRESSOFFOGPXE::pxelinux.0[/COLOR]

    This is failing to reach WDS Server from FOG PXE Menu
    [COLOR=#ff0000]LABEL WDS[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#ff0000]kernel chain.c32[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#ff0000] append IPOFWDSPXESERVER::pxelinux.0[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#ff0000]MENU LABEL WDS Server[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#ff0000]TEXT HELP[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#ff0000]Loads the WDS Imaging Environment.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#ff0000]ENDTEXT[/COLOR]



  • Don’t think there’s a way to do it with “chain.32”. I found other references to “pxechain.com” from the linux utilities.
    I added the following and it seemed to start booting but unfortunately didn’t boot WDS:

    LABEL Windows Deployment Services
    kernel pxechain.com
    append IPADDRESSGOESHERE::boot\x64\pxeboot.n12
    MENU LABEL Windows Deployment Services
    TEXT HELP
    Loads the Windows Deployment Services Imaging Environment.
    ENDTEXT

    So I’m going to give up on this one and do what everyone else seems to have done.
    Which is to put the linux boot files onto the WDS location and modify from there instead.

    Actually, someone found this as well (multi-PXE boot) which I might try out first:

    ::pxelinux.0 should be : : pxelinux.0 (without spaces)
