    Description

    Our imaging works like a champ to all of our systems except the our Lenovo m72 systems. The system stalls at initializing ipxe devices. Bios is up to date and current.



  • @sudburr are those the kkpxe file commands or operational commands for me to test with



  • @Tom-Elliott how can I confirm the correct files are used? We currently have our dhcp options pointing to the undionly.kpxe file but I can not locate that file anywhere to be able to determine if the code is correct



  • What we use for our M72z with BIOS - f6kt43a :

    For Legacy Network Boot (undionly.kpxe):

    - POWER UP / hold [F1]
    - Menu EXIT  \ OS Optimized Defaults = [disabled]
    
    - Depress:  [F9] … to load setup default configuration
    
    - Menu Startup \ Primary \ Automatic \ Error Boot Sequences
    1st device = [Network 1]
    2nd device = [SATA 1]
    

    For UEFI Network Boot (ipxe.efi):

    POWER UP / hold [F1]
    - Menu EXIT \ OS Optimized Defaults = [ENABLED]
    
    - Depress:  [F9] … to load setup default configuration
    
    - Menu Security \ Secure Boot \ Secure Boot = [disabled]
    
    - Menu Startup \ Primary \ Automatic \ Error Boot Sequences
    1st device = [Network]
    2nd device = [SATA]
    3rd device = [USB HDD]
    
    - Menu Startup \ CSM = [disabled]
    - Menu Startup \ Boot Mode = [UEFI]
    

    I just tested this out with 1.3.5 RC5

    Please use the ipxe7156.efi labelled files. If I remember correctly the m72 are booting UEFI.

    If this is not the case, then try the ipxe.pxe or undionly.kkpxe files (notice in the undionly there’s 2 k’s)
