Pxe client freeze on boot



  • Hello, I’m trying to simulate with Virtualbox, Fog version 2865 and 2 clients with dual installation (Mint17 and WindowsXP). The client hangs after menu with the message “/bzimage32 3%”. I’ve searched in the forum but can’t find a solution. Any idea? Thank You.

  • Finally works.

    • sudo service ufw disable
    • edit in /etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf filename from “undionly.kpxe” to “ipxe.pxe”
    • sudo service isc-dhcp-server restart
    • changed from Realtek to Intel 1000 Desktop in Network option Virtualbox
      Thank you Tom and jbsclm

    Make sure your network card type is set to Intel in virtual box, other types, eg realtek, can give this problem.
    It only happens on the Virtual box emulated ones, the real hardware ones are OK.
    See the attached screenshot for a working example

    The Selector that you’re using has no effect on what file is Actually in use.

    The file that’s actually in use is determined by Option 67.



  • Hello, I am using undionly.kpxe, by default. Now changing to ipxe.pxe or undionly.kkpxe in “Fog configuration -> Fog system -> Fog boot settings -> Tftp Server”. Same error. I can’t “Perform Full Registration nor Quick Registration” on boot menu. Attached log files. Thank you.

    What file are you booting from?

    undionly.pxe
    undionly.kpxe
    undionly.kkpxe
    ipxe.pxe
    ipxe.kpxe
    ipxe.kkpxe?

    I ask because I do see this freezing from time to time, but usually it’s directly related to the file I’m attempting to load from. Specifically, it’s most closely related to ipxe.pxe, but in your case (as you said you’re using VirtualBox) I’m going on a limb and going to guess you’re currently using undionly.kpxe. Would you be able to try ipxe.pxe or undionly.kkpxe and see if that gives you better results?
