Boot menu



  • Hello,

    since a lot of hours searching I was not able to configure the boot menu.

    One of the tutorial I found said, that I have to change (add) the appropiate label in the /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default

    The tftpboot directory exists (all the vesamenu) but not the pxelinux.cfg.

    After creating the default file, I guessed I has to work, but it didn´t. I don´t know where to search anymore, after reading a lot of pages of pxe-booting.

    Can somebody say me the files I have to modify?

    Thanks
    Angel



  • Thanks. With the advanced boot configuration it works fine.

    If somebody doesn´t want to search, here is my solution:

    1. open /var/www and create a directory called (for example) isos
    2. put your isos into it
    3. go to advanced options an add your personal menu, for example

    :MENU
    menu
    item --gap – ---------- My boot menu --------------
    item Hirens Hirens Boot CD
    item return go back
    choose --default return --timeout 10000 target && goto ${target}

    :Hirens
    initrd [url]http://${fog-ip}/isos/hirens.iso[/url]
    chain memdisk iso raw ||
    goto MENU

    :return
    chain [url]http://${fog-ip}/${fog-webroot}/service/ipxe/boot.php?mac=${net0/mac}[/url] ||
    prompt
    goto MENU

    autoboot



  • Ah ok.

    The menu directly can be edited in a svn but tata is correct that advanced menu will also work



  • I think the boot menu can be modified via the web interface on releases after 1.2.0 only.

    If you want that feature, you’d need to update to the trunk developmental releases.

  • if you are looking for Advanced Boot Menu, it is located on iPXE Boot Menu in FOG Configuration page in your FOG website.
