iPXE blank screen on specific HW - CyrilP - 2014-09-25 17:59

Hi !

We used to provision our servers using iPXE and it works flawlessly except for one specific kind of them:

SuperMicro X9DRi-LN4+

iPxe booting is fine using the onboard NIC, but when I try to boot from our 82599ES 10-Gigabit SFI/SFP+,

It leads to a blanc screen if I use undionly.0 and a nice coloroured screen if I use undionly.kpxe.

The same card in another server works fine with iPxe.

How to debug this ?

Thanks !

I think this card should be supported by the intelx driver, so I would recommend you try out ipxe.pxe instead of undionly.kpxe and see how it goes. This issue you're seeing seems to be caused by some kind of memory corruption between iPXE and some other hardware. Try to build with DEBUG=intel,intelx if you're still having issues and report the problem either on the mailing-list or on IRC (or here).
