Unsolved IPXE Boot Issue with Realtek RTL8153
[quote=“Sam Wennerlund, post: 39423, member: 20713”]
Also have tried adding the host to FOG first and it still is stuck at “iPXE initialising devices”[/quote]
Have you tried the undionly.kkpxe
Have you tried the ipxe.kpxe
Have you tried the undionly.kpx.INTEL
I would recommend giving one of these a shot.
FYI: undionly.kkpxe worked for me on HP Pro Book 4520s part WH333UT#ABA. I was getting the iPXE initializing stuck message with undionly.kpxe
[url]http://fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/WorkingDevices#Computers[/url]: Updated adding HP Probook 4520s as a working device with Fog 1.x.x and the undionly.kkpxe ipxe file.
Hey guys, I’m glad I found this thread. I just wanted to add here that changing the ipxe file to undionly.kkpxe works on HP Mini 2102 netbooks which run this chipset (FOG on CentOS 6.6 and FOG 1.2.0).
Good reminder; I also need to report that HP Pro Book 440 G2 requires the boot file changed to undionly.kkpxe
I think I may have the same problem here with the new Lenovo Yogo 12 and the realtek 8153 USB-Ethernet NIC.
I get to
iPXE initialising devices…
and it hags there.
In reading this post, it seems that I need to update my undionly.kpxe to undionly.kkpxe.
My problem is I don’t even know what that means.
I am VERY VERY green to linux command line manipulation.
In fact, I was only able to get this working last year in the first place thanks to the wonderful patience and support from this community and Tom Elliott.
But I have been using this server flawlessly for that entire year.
I was able to update from 1.0.1 to 1.2.0 and then go do subversion to the newest. All of that seemed to go fine.
Can anyone please help with directions on how to change the .kpxe to .kkpxe?
Thanks in advance.
Oh, I have Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64 bit OS
FOG web gui reads 3735
If Windows Server handles your DHCP, then likely, all you need to do is modify your DHCP IPv4 Scope option 067 to undionly.kkpxe
Thank you Wayne, but my DHCP is handled by the FOG server.
It’s all one unit.
Would the same theory work?
Modify the local DHCP server? How would I do that?
@nweakland It depends on the distribution. Normally it’s just a conf file you’d change. You’ll see where it says undionly.kpxe and you’d just add the extra k.
Edit the file /etc/dhcpd.conf and change the next-server to the IP address of your fog server.
Change the filename to the boot file you want loaded.
Ok, After some more googling, I was able to find how to change to .kkpxe.
I did this:
sudo gedit /etc/dhcp/dhcp.conf
and changed it in there
after that I stopped and started the dhcp service.
That certainly helped becuase now I get past the “initialising devices” hang-up.
However, now it goes just a little farther and reboots.
the last thing in the screen I see is
then it reboots.
Can anyone point where to go next?
any key words I can google/search?
