Having trouble booting live image

  • I’m using Fog 1.2.0 with IPXE

    The iso I’m trying to load is a customized lubuntu image which boots and works just fine as a live image on some local host computer as well as in a virtual box. I have mounted the .iso file in the http://${fog-ip}/fog/lublive/trusty directory using the command:
    chain memdisk iso raw ||
    goto MENU

    The iso image appears to download, the lubuntu splash screen appears with the loading bar, then it shows the following:

    http://${fog-ip}/fog/lublive/trusty/casper/vmlinuz boot=casper netboot=nfs
    initrd http://${fog-ip}/fog/lublive/trusty/casper/initrd.lz
    boot || goto MENU

    The pxe boot fails immediately and boots from the harddrive

    Configuration 3:

    imgfetch http://${fog-ip}/fog/lublive/lublive1.iso
    boot memdisk iso raw ||
    goto MENU

    Once again the iso image loads, the splash screen appears, but the result/error is the same as Configuration 1.

    Configuration 4:

    kernel http://${fog-ip}/fog/lublive/trusty/casper/vmlinuz
    initrd http://${fog-ip}/fog/lublive/trusty/casper/initrd.lz
    imgargs vmlinuz boot=live config console=ttyS0 fetch=http://${fog-ip}/fog/lublive/trusty/casper/filesystem.squashfs

    it appears to load vmlinuz and initrd but then the screen becomes blank and is unresponsive, I let it sit for a while in case it was loading the image and just taking a while but nothing happened.

    I also tried booting the unaltered standard lubuntu image and although it didn’t show the initial Memdisk errors as before, it still loaded a BusyBox shell and said “Unable ot find a medium containing a live file system”

    Any help or insight would be much appreciated.

    the “boot memdisk iso raw” method won’t work with linux disks, typically
    on the other one’s, you might be able to get some hints from this page https://gist.github.com/robinsmidsrod/2234639
