wimboot issue with server 2012 on physical servers
Hi,
I am trying to install Windows Server 2012 on physical servers. Followed the instructions here http://ipxe.org/wimboot. After loading all the files I see a blank screen. I found several posts with this issue but with no definitive solution.

I added the missing font, made sure the bios is at latest, etc.

The same task works fine on a VM hosted on Xen but doesn’t work on a physical servers. These are some hardware details

"bios_vendor":"HP",
"bios_version":"P58",
"bios_release_date":"05/02/2011",
"manufacturer":"HP",
"productname":"ProLiant DL360 G5",
"serialnumber":"USE839N9CA",
"uuid":"33393935-3234-5553-4538-33394E394341",
"type":"Rack Mount Chassis"

Are there any know issues ? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks
Amit

Please try the latest version of wimboot (v1.0.5), which includes a change designed to improve the chances of bootmgr.exe displaying errors correctly.
