    While iPXE is handy and somewhat neat to make your life a little easier, I'm willing to bet you'd run into similar issues even if you used the old pxelinux.cfg menu system. Some of the iso's can operate just fine being fully loaded and directly as such. However, actual OS discs, especially those that run live cd's it seems, don't like the approach of loading the entire disk and booting from it in ram. This isn't because of something FOG is doing wrong, but rather how the cd was created. The ISO is actually, once loaded, trying to locate itself from within the CD it was booted from. Because it cannot find this, it cannot boot further. The way to boot these in such ways is to extract the information of the CD/DVD and mount using it's respective vmlinuz/bzImage and init/initrd files.


  • anyone idea?

  • ram 8gb. false screenshot, no raspbian :O


  • :eek: ........ rasbian? as a fog server? that works? o_O that never come to mind for me! Hmmm:cool:

  • Developer

    how much ram do you have in the target computer? memdisk iso raw tries to load the entire iso into ram. also, is that a screenshot of rasbian? that's not normally even compiled to be compatible with x86 or x86_64 systems


  • now, every iso is loading, but win7 isnt. win8.1 works,nice! ultimatebootcd works, also, but the others wont. here the errors.

    your Win81.iso needs to be changed to win81.iso to match your actual file name, too

    The problem is how you're calling the ISOs. You're not calling the web-root. Try this: [code]:MENU menu item --gap -- ----------------- VS Boot Menu ----------------- item gap item bootlocal Festplatte booten item --gap Image installieren item --key 1 image1 Image ... installieren item --gap Betriebssystem installieren item --key 7 win7 Windows 7 AIO Setup item --key 8 Win8 Windows 8.1 Setup item --gap Partition/Image/Backup item --key a acronis2013 Acronis True Image 2013 item --key p gparted Gparted item --key c clonezilla Clonezilla item --gap MultiBootCDs item --key h hirens HirensbootCD item --key u ubcd UltimateBootCD item --gap Shell item shell iPXE Shell item --gap Computer-Informationen item hostinfo Computer-Informationen item --gap -- item return


  • [url=http://abload.de/image.php?img=fogisomeuf4.jpg][img]http://abload.de/thumb/fogisomeuf4.jpg[/img][/url] thats my isos


  • no, it boot windows. isos are in place, same place as acronis. i post later the place from the files.

  • Developer

    Any error messages when you try the other boot menu entries? We need more information on what exactly does not work to be able to help you. Maybe the ISO files are not in place!? Or those ISO files might be corrupt.... Could be anything, really. Please give us some more details.
