pxeboot.n12 working from DHCP PXE but not through iPXE
Hi,

I am trying to boot pxeboot.n12 to get the WINPE.

Code:
DHCP Configuration:
subnet 10.0.0.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
  range 10.0.0.15 10.0.0.50;
  option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;
  if exists user-class and option user-class = "iPXE" {
    filename "pxeboot.n12";
  } else {
    filename "undionly.kpxe";
  }
  next-server 10.0.0.5;
}

This is working fine by fetching all the files including bootmgr.exe, BCD, winpe.wim.

The same thing when I try with iPXE, WINPE gets stuck at "Windows is loading files"

iPXE script:
Code:
#!ipxe
chain tftp://10.0.0.5/pxeboot.n12

How to solve this?

Server: HP DL380 Gen8
BIOS Last Updated: July 18 2013

Regards,
Karthik

The answer from Dracula in http://forum.ipxe.org/showthread.php?tid...09#pid9909 should probably be helpful, in how he sets the ipv4 address of the wdsserver and does a careful chain after.

But to be honest I'm curious why you're not using wimboot to avoid the entire thing? Check out these links: http://ipxe.org/howto/winpe http://ipxe.org/wimboot http://ipxe.org/howto/sccm

Initially we tried wimboot only, but that didn't help, same problem as above, so we used this method. I will check the another post you specified. Also we are usnig Linux DHCP Server.
