PXE Files



  • While testing and troubleshooting I’ve been trying different PXE files, but other then just being a different name, what makes one different then another? How do I know which one I should use other then just a shot in the dark or trial and error?

    ipxe.kkpxe
    ipxe.kpxe
    ipxe.krn
    ipxe.pxe
    pxelinux.0.old
    snponly.efi
    undionly.kkpxe
    undionly.kpxe
    undionly.kpxe.INTEL
    undionly.pxe
    vesamenu.c32



  • We have upgraded to Fog 1.1 with very little trouble. I was using the PXE boot to load a few disk-less systems. Since he change in Fog PXE boot as changed a bit it seems to be going to the httpd for the boot image. How can i add a 01-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx file to get my network boot systems back up and running. I’m not familiar with working of the new setup. I am hoping its something easy. or if you can point me in the right direction.

    [B]I just copied the old PXE files to the /tftpboot/ and made sure not to write over any of the new files.[/B]
    [B]I should have played with it more before i posted.[/B]

    Thanks again for all you guys have done with the Fog project.

    the ipxe project evolved from the gpxe project

    Currently using files from [url]https://svn.code.sf.net/p/freeghost/code/trunk/packages/tftp/[/url]. You guys are great with all the FOG development, we do appreciate the work!

    What issue are you troubleshooting? The latest undionly.kpxe in the SVN should run just fine.
