HPE Ethernet 1Gb 4-port 331i - Installation failed
Hi,

I try to boot an ISO file compiled from ipxe master branch on a HPE Server, with HPE Ethernet 1Gb 4-port 331i adapter, but as soon as it try to initialize devices, it crash:

Code:
Loading ipxe.krn...ok
iPXE initializing devices...1B101B10 00100004 000007E2
Installation failed - cannot continue

Is is a device not supported or any special target I need to build ?

Thanks

It seems that something crashes quite early in the boot process.
Not sure which pciid that card has, but just to figure out what is going on ...
could you try building and running
make bin/intel.iso
make bin/intelx.iso
make bin/axge.iso

One of the first ones hopefully has the drivers for your nic, I would expect one of them or both to crash.
The last one is for a different nic (USB based) and the reason for testing that is to be able to tell if it is driver that crashes or if it is core.

When you know this it might be better suited to send this to the mailing list.
Make sure to also include a full lspci -nn and when you grab this also make sure that the machine was booted in pcbios mode (not EFI) since that can affect the devices.

Did you include relevant ipxe.org error urls?

Hello,

Thanks for the reply. Sadly I don't have access to that machine anymore.
We made it works at the end, but I'm not sure how. It was related to EFI mode Smile

The message "Loading ipxe.krn...ok" definetly is not from EFI mode tho Wink
