  • [quote=“Tom Elliott, post: 38577, member: 7271”]While you are using your router, are you specifying the next-server/option 66 and filename/option 67 options?

    It seems to me the reason your systems aren’t getting ipxe/pxe menu is simply because they don’t know where to get it.[/quote]

    Yes it is (i’ve seen your replys to everyone else so i made this was correct)

    Awesome write up, and I liked your blog, with all the images it should really help! Fog does seem to run rather beautifully on the 14.04.1 set up :)[/quote]

    Just a quick question you say it works on pure Debian but i been try to get PXE menu to boot for last past 24 hours on computers, and i can’t:
    does it really work on Debian 7.7
    fog1.2.0
    DHCP and DNS off So using my routers as dhcp/dns
    i’ve used fog many times before over 100 and this is the second time i am having problems so not really sure why?
    (if you want me to open a new post i will)

    I fail to see how anything you just said makes you unqualified to post on the wiki…
