iPXE and kickstarter file (ESXi) - stokbaek - 2014-04-11 14:39

Hello all,

I am trying to make an automated installation option in my iPXE menu for ESXi.

I have managed to get in the installer to work with:

That was very complicated. Maybe ESXi 5.0 has come a long way from 4.x, but I only do like this:


chain iso

But how would I add a kickstarter to this?

You can't. That is the downside to it. You'll need to unpack the ISO file and boot it using either mboot.c32 or try to get it working using direct boot from iPXE.
