Hi there,

Been trying really hard to set up PXE on my newly puchases NAS, due to limitations by only being able to give a bootloader file iPXE is my way to go. However when making it it always errors out at the same point. Tried the following things:

- Made on a network share (initial try) > failed
- Made with menu.ipxe embed > failed
- Made without menu.ipxe embed > failed
- Made on a physical drive in the current system > failed

I'm using Cygwin64 Terminal with the complete Devel package to make, and I'll be needing to make a .EFI file in order to get my my PXE to work for UEFI systems.

I'll post the full logs as hastebins below.

make EMBED=menu.ipxe


make bin-x86_64-efi/ipxe.efi

make bin-x86_64-efi/ipxe.efi EMBED=menu.ipxe

make bin/ipxe.iso

make bin/ipxe.iso EMBED=menu.ipxe

As you can see, it errors out on the same part every time. I've used the make and iso make commands for testing purposes, but primarily need the .EFI, would like to make a bootable USB aswell for BIOS systems tho.

I'm hoping someone can point me into the right error or point out any mistakes I've made so I can continue.

Thank you!
You probably don't want to build all targets anyway, and probably not ISO at all, your efi line is what you want.

Thank you for telling us that you are building with Cygwin, I would not expect it to succeed, you will want a real *nix, but there is also supports of linux subsystem for windows does work.
