Post: RE: iPXE, iSCSI and int13

No worries, it was certainly educational. :) I'm reliant on the R.o.M. as I don't have a working build machine at present, and I can't for the life f me seem to get it to show your new revision, so I'...

Post: RE: iPXE, iSCSI and int13

So, I'm having a looksie at the source, (and learning AT&T ASM syntax, it seems), and I'm drawn to int13_load_mbr in int13.c. Am I reading it correctly when I read that it calls interrupt 13 func...

Thanks, I've managed to get the R.o.M. working, so have lovely debug images to play with (with syslog - thanks for adding that!) As expected, I'm getting back a valid MBR: http://pastebin.com/raw/NBe...

Post: RE: iPXE, iSCSI and int13

Right. Seems I left a test HDD connected whilst troubleshooting, and that's where my NTLDR was coming from, which explains how boot could be failing midway. With that disk removed, it fails in a much...

Indeed. It dawned on me an hour or so after I posted that (sorry - was unable to edit before bothering anyone with it!) that my raid controller was still active and could be interfering...so I pulled ...

Post: RE: iPXE, iSCSI and int13

Thanks for that, good to know. I copied G4D up to my web server and chained it from there (just using the command line to explore what it could access) as I suspected exiting might be a factor, but st...

Post: iPXE, iSCSI and int13

Just wondering...this is all very new to me, but do iPXE's int13 hooks mean that you would expect the sanhook'ed iSCSI target to show up as a browsable (hdx) device in GRUB4DOS (command line, (hd<t...
