Post: Translating configs from pxelinux to iPXE

I'm trying to translate a simple config from pxelinux into the proper iPXE syntax. At the moment, the test config isn't working with either one, so I'm not sure if I've translated things correctly. ...

Post: RE: Odd behavior running under Parallels

Thanks. I'll explore this more as time allows, and report to the developer mailer if I find anything of interest.

Post: RE: Odd behavior running under Parallels

More detail and some progress, for the record... The base server running TFTP, HTTP, etc. is actually CentOS6.3, while the ISO is being built using CentOS6.4. The iPXE I'm using are all 1.0.0+ build...

Post: Odd behavior running under Parallels

All, I'm seeing some general weirdness trying to use iPXE between VMs for testing. I could use some troubleshooting tips, particularly around what's happening under the hood during file download. W...

Once booted, I will still need network connectivity - both for central control of the testing, and also to test networking. I'm just trying to remove external dependencies. We've got a fairly specif...

OK, so digging deeper, it seems like Espen's solution (above) is almost what I'm looking for - I think his kickstart is just for building the ISO, and the ISO is used to boot the OS and move it into t...

Post: Feasible Concept? Booting to local RAM Filesystem

I'd like some help to validate a general concept for PXE... am I heading down a feasible path here? My goal is to have a system boot quickly via iPXE, run independently (local file system), and run e...

Yep! http://rom-o-matic.eu/ looks exactly like what I'm describing. (Edit: That site is perfect! Quick and easy to use. It deserves shameless promotion in the iPXE website.) Though my stubborn nat...

Post: RE: Assembler 'make' errors on Mac OS X

Thanks, Robin. I didn't see that option in man, but curiously it only reveals the gcc commands (or, only what it perceives to be build instructions, rather than all shell calls). I managed to narrow...

Hi, guys. Tossing out an idea for consideration... It seems to me that a (the?) major use case for iPXE involves just embedding a script in the bootloader. This relatively benign step is far more d...

Hi, all. I'm stumped. I'm trying to build this package on Mac OS 10.8.3 (command-line tools from Xcode 4.6.3), but getting an error during the make process. I've only found one hit on these forums,...
