Full Version: Newbie problem with iPXE Quickstart Demo
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.

I followed all the instructions to try the Quickstart Demo using the bootable iPXE image burned to a DVD.

Everything works fine. I get the "Congratulations! You have successfully booted the iPXE demonstration image....." message and then the root:/# prompt appears.

But now my system is completely hung. I can't even use CTRL-ALT-DEL.

I tried several times and get the same thing.

What could be the problem?

I would very much appreciate any help or suggestions.

Thank you
As discuessed on IRC this is a problem with the demo kernel not supporting your usb controler/keyboard.

Since it is just a demo showing that it was able to boot I'm not sure how big of an issue this is?
Since it is not an issue at all with iPXE.

What is the end goal you want to achieve, maybe it is better to help you in that regard instead?
