SVN 2262 still can't tftp boot.
Device is a ASUS T100 Model T100TA-C1-GR
This device has a 32bit UEFI chipset.
The screen just flashes quickly and disappears so I can’t get the error.
I tried changing FOG_TFTP_PXE_KERNEL to bzImage32 but no difference.
Any ideas? Thanks
Well, I have gotten one step closer…kinda. I found a bootia32.efi file that successfully boots me into Grub 2.
Here it is if anyone would like to experiment…
I’ll be running more tests today at work, I’ll report back if I get anywhere…
Looking at http://ipxe.org/download
Does fog have the 32-bit driver for efi in /tftboot ?
I have tried snp.efi and snponly.efi and ipxe.efi but I dont know if they are 64 or 36 bit.
We are getting there!
iPXE supports the EFI and UEFI environments, as well as the standard PC BIOS. You can build an EFI driver ROM using the .efirom image format. For example:
make bin-i386-efi/808610de.efirom # 32-bit driver ROM
make bin-x86_64-efi/808610de.efirom # 64-bit driver ROM
I changed the FOG_TFTP_PXE_KERNEL to bzImage32 ( looks like you need a 32bit boot even though you can use 64bit os)
and tried every file as the bootfilename in dhcp from /tftpboot.
It says in the log for SVN 2262 improvements to uefi boot. Wonder which developer worked with the IPXE team on this.
WHich kernel should I be using that supports EUFI ?
I moved the WDS UEFI boot file to my FOG server, and I’m able to get a bit further, but it times out because it’s waiting for WDS commands from the FOG server which obviously don’t exist…
Try these if you haven’t already:
chmod 755 them once they’ve been moved into /tftpboot
I should clarify, the farthest I’ve came is downloading the boot file successfully, then continues booting into Windows.
I have just tried every file in /tftpboot in the 067 dhcp optiuon bootfile name. THe device downloads the file, says successful but just reboots after that.
I’m in the exact same boat with the exact same devices, lol.
Currently using awful WDS to deploy…once we are finally able to boot to the FOG menu I’ll probably start screaming hysterically lol.
undionly.kpxe is in dhcp
On the tablet screen it shows the following
start pxe over ipv4
downloading NBP file
succeed to download NBP file.
then it just reboots
Me neither, sorry!
you may need to set the boot file to ipxe.efi or snponly.efi to get that to work, if even that will work. i haven’t done anything with uefi booting yet, so i don’t think i can be much more help to you.
Secure boot is turned off in the bios. There is no legacy bios mode.
do you have uefi disabled?
it sounds to me like ipxe isn’t loading then, because if it was it wouldn’t just blip by. have you made sure that the dhcp server is set to serve out undionly.kpxe? can you download undionly.kpxe from another computer on the network?
I have referenced this forum if it is of any use.
I have been able to boot a usb drive with a 32bit boot.wim file from SCCM 2012 R2 but thats another story.
Unfortunately the tablet shows the screen really fast and it goes away. It’s to quick even read it. Should I be able to boot this device with the SVN 2262 code?
does the ipxe info show up on the screen at all?
