  Thread: Authentication via iPXE when using boot, chain, kernel, initrd etc.
Post: RE: Authentication via iPXE when using boot, chain...

  Thread: python & ipxe - syntax errors
Post: RE: python & ipxe - syntax errors

As a rule of thumb I always suggest trying out the URL you're trying to get working in iPXE in a web browser. That usually helps you to figure out exactly what is going on and why things are not worki...

Post: RE: Menu login with encrypted password

I don't recall if the hash functions have been extended to allow storing into a variable or not. Carefully check the git commit log for details or ask on IRC. If they have been extended to support thi...

Yes, it should be possible, but you might need to set up your own hosting system to get it working.

Yep, building with the appropriate DEBUG=filename,filename for the problematic .c files should yield some more insight.

If you actually add an error screenshot or something like that you might be able to get more help. Also, your message was written in a quite hard to understand manner. Maybe try to rephrase it with st...

If the datasheets for this hardware are available without having to sign an NDA or pay for, then your chances for getting it implemented are much higher. If you want to speed it up you might want to g...

You can't hide the URL without making code changes like thomil mentioned, but you can make it look nicer if you use HTTP POST support included in iPXE.

  Thread: How do I chain through VPN?
Post: RE: How do I chain through VPN?

iPXE has no specific support for VPN protocols. If you need to connect through a VPN, you need to set up the VPN connection in the router/gateway for the network where your iPXE clients live. Your iPX...

  Thread: Dell latitude E7480
Post: RE: Dell latitude E7480

I am not familiar enough with netboot.xyz, but are you sure that it supports UEFI properly? If it doesn't, then maybe you need to boot the Dell laptop in legacy/CSM/BIOS mode to use netboot.xyz. If y...

Normally, you can't access the contents of an ISO after the kernel has booted. You'll need to tell the kernel how to access the files it needs from a network resource. Here it seems like the ISO is g...

Post: RE: iPXE Not Making Requests to Port 4011

cjs: I wonder if the iPXE version you use to start KVM/QEMU with has had ProxyDHCP disabled with a compilation config switch. Either that or the dnsmasq server running on port 67 is somehow telling iP...

I seem to recall that this "updates" stage is where it needs the network and it is not operational. I recall that the Windows 10 RTM release had the same issue, but Windows 10 r1609 (anniversary updat...
