So, I've made some progress on this approach. I have a Win10PE SE build that I'm trying to boot over HTTP. The initial initrd files all load, and wimboot starts. Then, wimboot throws this error: Q...

Cool. I guess I've been lucky with the past several hardware platforms that I've done this on. The WinPE method looked confusing the first time I read through it, but I'm pretty familiar with WinPE ...

First off, I know this may be a bit of a stretch for this forum, but I think I've narrowed my problems down to either iPXE itself or what I'm asking it to do. Here's my scenario: I need to complete ...

  Thread: Handling DHCP timeouts in script
Post: RE: Handling DHCP timeouts in script

If whitespace were an issue, then I'd think the entire script wouldn't work. It works fine as long as none of the steps error out.

Post: RE: Handling DHCP timeouts in script

I'm chainloading undionly.kpxe. Most of the boot attempts work, but when they don't, neither of the retry actions appear to retry. They exit instead.

  Thread: Handling DHCP timeouts in script
Post: RE: Handling DHCP timeouts in script

I can't get a retry in either error phase of my script, the DHCP request or the sanboot. Any error in either one generates the "No more network devices" prompt, at which point I'm dumped back to the ...

  Thread: Handling DHCP timeouts in script
Post: RE: Handling DHCP timeouts in script

I was using that method since it was a copy and paste straight off the ipxe.org website as how to deal with retrying DHCP requests if they fail. So the site is wrong? I realize there's the extra che...

Post: Handling DHCP timeouts in script

I've got an iPXE setup that is scripted to boot off an iSCSI target. I followed the examples for handling dhcp timeouts/errors, but I'm still getting random machines that timeout on the dhcp request ...

  Thread: DHCP option 203
Post: RE: DHCP option 203

Thanks. I figured out how to do it by script, I was just hoping to not have to hit the TFTP server a second time, since I'm chainloading iPXE. If script is the only method, then script it is.

Post: DHCP option 203

So, I need to base the IQN of my iPXE-booted initiators off of MAC addresses rather than uuid. I have multiple, identical hardware platforms, so the identical uuid is throwing off my iSCSI target sof...

In the time it took for my first post to be approved, I actually already solved this. The network card driver needs to be listed in the critical device database section of the registry. Just install...

Post: 0x7B when iSCSI booting on alternate hardware

I've built a Win7 machine that's stored on an iSCSI share. I'm using a chain-loaded iPXE rom to mount the share and boot from it. I did the install using a VMWare VM with and emulated Intel Pro 1000...
