Could not boot: Exec format error (

  • Hello,

    we have put in place a server FOG’, in order to test FOG on another site ( Datacenter has toward the Datacenter B ) , we want to used IPXE everything works well in local , but when we want uses the remote server we get following error ( here is the screen capture )

    Can you tell me , or may come from error?

    Thank You


  • I do not know any more how BOOT my ISO about the server FOG

  • Developer

    are the ipxe files in the svn trunk giving you the same error, or a different error. if you need to use a boot disk instead of pxe booting, then perhaps chainloading ipxe with grub would work for you

  • Good evening, I have to try this method but unsuccessfully it is a real pity which we can begun(primed) on an other one networks with an image iso for example:

    Waiter(Server) TFTP:
    Deploy post:

    It is a real pity because I would be forced to resume(to take back) Acronis I found that FOG be a good solution.

    It is a pity this work is not integrated(joined).

    Otherwise if you have solution I am interested!

  • Ok i m try thank you

  • Developer

    try the ipxe files from the svn trunk

  • I have to try but that does not walk(work) I obtain another error, to see the arrest screen.

    I took the file default.ipxe to compile my image iso with the files of FOG, but that does not walk(work)…


  • Ok thank you very much , i’m try it

  • Developer

    i recommend creating a boot disk using the ipxe files included with fog.

  • You are right, I compiled an iso for boot on a waiter(server) pxe distant, I used the following tutoriel:

    http: /

    you have a solution ?

  • Developer

    it looks like you’re trying to network boot using an ipxe boot disk that doesn’t contain all the needed components compiled into the fog version of ipxe
