I would like to load vmlinuz/initrd via HTTP like the following ,

kernel http://${my-server}/vmlinuz initrd=http://${my-server}/initrd.gz
initrd http://${my-server}/initrd.gz

But the results look like the following . Please advise me how to make it work . ok ok
Failed to open initrd file: http:\\\initrd.gz

I believe you don't want initrd=http://${my-server}/initrd.gz as it's already loaded into memory at that point. So maybe you could have it load the kernel line as:

kernel http://${my-server}/vmlinuz initrd=initrd.gz

I believe this because during the kernel loadout, it doesn't have networking capabilities to download the init as you're trying to have here. However, using the initrd=initrd.gz it should be able to find it in memory when it begins loading.
