I've downloaded the last version of ipxe and made undionly.kpxe for chainloading

I've set up my nfs server service and it is okay I think
But when I want to set a client it replies that:
Could not start download: Operation not supported(

Hi, welcome to the ipxe userland Wink

On you can see an example of the Feature: header when ipxe starts that show you what it supports.

From we find this text:
Quote:This configuration assumes the iPXE boot file you are using has the DOWNLOAD_PROTO_NFS option enabled. If it doesn't, you will have to change the kernel and initrd lines to boot over a protocol that is supported in your environment. Either this, or you could rebuild your iPXE boot file.

Documentation should probably be improved for this, for now I would refer to gsoc NFS for how to enable DOWNLOAD_PROTO_NFS in a iPXE build.
