downloading boot.wim fails randomly on intel PRO/100 VE
Hi,
I am new to IPXE. Downloading boot.wim from server works properly several times, but many times the downloading hangs or sometimes PC restart automatically. Can you help me where I can look into the issue and how can I solve the issue.

Thanks in advanced.

RE: downloading boot.wim fails randomly on intel PRO/100 VE
Download the latest version of ipxe on http://boot.ipxe.org/ and try to boot that. The intel driver has had quite a lot of work done in the last couple of years, so you might be hitting a driver bug. If you're still getting issues with the latest build then go through the checklist at http://ipxe.org/dev/driver and tell us where it fails (make a table of pass/fail remark for each test).

I am using the latest version of iPXE. I am using the following command -->
make bin/ipxe.lkrn DEBUG=eepro100,tcp:1

I get following few lines and the software hangs at 57%. its not that it always hangs at 57%, it some time hangs at 13% or 61@ or sometimes just reboot the whole system.

following are the few output statement displayed on screen -->

TCP checksum incorrect (is 130c including checksum field, should be 0000)
ifec_net_poll: RU reprimed.
ifec_net_poll: RU reprimed.
57%

I tested the first test (Link detection) on the mentioned at http://ipxe.org/dev/driver
Output-
When I executed the command ifopen net0 it opened the device and Link also shown as UP when i removed the cable than too the Link was still UP. I manually closed net0 using the command(ifclose net0) than too the Link is showing UP

Basic DHCP test also failed giving error no. as 0x040ee119

I was able to capture data on wireshark when the issue of random hang occurred and after going through the logs, it was found that there was issue of out of sequence packet when the IPXE got hanged and the system did not come out from the issue.

Can you please let me know whats the reason for such behavior and what needs to be done to resolve it.
