EFI - lynxbat - 2012-07-10 18:25

I have an EFI Virtual Machine that I can boot successfully to Ubuntu EFI build image.

I cannot however boot to an iPXE build.

I built using:

make bin-i386-efi/ipxe.efi
make bin-x86_64-efi/ipxe.efi

Is this the correct way to built the network boot image? I am using the undi style DHCP options:

subnet netmask {
option subnet-mask;
option broadcast-address;
option routers;
#filename "pxelinux.0";
if exists user-class and option user-class = "iPXE" {
filename "razor.ipxe"; # we are in an iPXE kernel and load static script
} else {
filename "ipxe.efi"; # either i386 or x86_64 renamed

Again, I confirmed using the Ubuntu grub EFI image and it works by changing the filename above.

I have also confirmed the TFTP options are set correctly (blksize, tsize)

I think I may be building the wrong iPXE EFI file.

I think this page, http://ipxe.org/efi/vision, might give you some information on EFI support in iPXE.

I'm not very knowledgeable about the EFI parts of iPXE, unfortunately.
