RE: iPXE HTTP boot using PHP
Hi everyone !

If you take a look for the chain command

you can see


and you can download content of to see what is inside Smile


kernel vmlinuz-3.16.0-rc4 bootfile= fastboot initrd=initrd.img
initrd initrd.img

and you can also try to see if there is any content on

There is !!! Also for Fedora :-)


prompt -k 0x197e -t 2000 Press F12 to install Fedora... || exit

set base

kernel ${base}/pxeboot/vmlinuz stage2=${base}/install.img
initrd ${base}/pxeboot/initrd.img

Then I wget the mentioned files to my local machine

wget ${base}/pxeboot/vmlinuz
wget ${base}/install.img
wget ${base}/pxeboot/initrd.img

and rewrite boot.php


set base
kernel ${base}/vmlinuz inst.stage2=${base}/install.img
initrd ${base}/initrd.img

And everything works !!!

Filesystem is loaded from install.img !!!

It works !!!

PS: why is there no mention of the argument inst.stage2 in documentation ?

If you just write the argument stage2= - it doesn't work...

Please, can you mention the argument inst.stage2 in the documentation ?

PPS: tommorow I will try to run Fedora 30 Live in this way, so stay in touch :-)
