iPXE boot with mSATA - Gwuieon Jin - 2013-01-23 12:27

Hi all

I'd like to use iPXE for network boot (i.e. PXE).
My desktop environment is same as most people except mSATA to store iPXE binary.

Do you know how to burning iPXE binary to mSATA? Blush
If yes, then please let me know.

Thanks for great piece of software.

I'm going to assume you want to use the mSATA device to store other stuff as well. In that case, you'll have to put some kind of boot loader on it, like syslinux or grub, and build ipxe.lkrn and boot that from your first-stage boot-loader.

If you don't care about using the device for anything else, I think you can just use dd to write the ipxe.usb image (or possibly even ipxe.dsk) directly to the device.

Dear. Robinsmidsrod.

Currently i don't care about the device for including any stuff like syslinux or grub, but only focus on including iPXE binary in the device. As you say, dd command with ipxe.usb image is working well.
In addition to next step, i will test on the device for including any stuff like syslinux or grub. and boot from the device.

Thanks and Regards.
