sanboot on UEFI device
Hi everybody,

I have really enjoyed the functionality of iPXE and am mostly done with my project but am having a slight hiccup near the end.

I have a .ISO on an HTTP server that I want to be able to boot into on a UEFi device using the normal iPXE menu.

Command to make bootloader: "make bin-x86_64-efi/snponly.efi EMBED=embed.ipxe", using default config where sanboot is enabled by default.

Command: "sanboot http://boot.ipxe.org/freedos/fdfullcd.iso"

The error I am receiving:
[Image: Capture.png]

I believe I previously had this command working by making with ipxe.efi, but I need to use snponly.efi because I am also booting ESXi images which are higher priority.

Thanks for any help!

RE: sanboot on UEFI device
Can't see the image, but 2 things:
The FAQ and several posts (even recent ones) mentiones why booting isos is a bad idea.

If booting in EFI mode remember that the medium that you are booting also is required to have a EFI bootable binary.
To be clear, freedos is pcbios legacy only - and will probably never be bootable from within an EFI evironemnt, (this is also covered in the FAQ)

Read FAQ before first post!
Are relevant ipxe.org error urls and PCIIDs included?
