sanboot on UEFI device - ivyfpop - 2019-07-19 15:43

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:

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!

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)
