info about using iPXE and UEFI? - hetz - 2014-11-30 13:38


I'm looking for info for combining both BIOS & UEFI so both will boot on various machines and show boot menus.

I'm using dnsmasq for the TFTP and DHCP (as proxy mode).

has Anyone already done this before? any links or sample I can read and learn from it please?

You can find an ISC dhcpd setup for loading legacy bios and UEFI versions of iPXE at https://gist.github.com/robinsmidsrod/4008017. It does get a bit complicated, but once you've got a fully-featured iPXE binary running you can use one of the examples at http://ipxe.org/examples as a menu. UEFI environments support most of the legacy BIOS features, except sanboot and VESA framebuffer.
