I'm a newbie so please...post some links for dummies if you really want to help me...
I have tried to find some information about this topic but google only shows me old posts about gpxe and not ipxe firmware.
Any help would be very appreciated.
I have a personal request: If you are going to post a question both here and on a mailing-list or other forum, please allow at least a little
bit of time to pass, in-between... That would have saved the time of the person who responded on the mailing-list to your last question, which I had already answered. I don't mean a great
amount of time, but at least some. Otherwise, you could have many people all sending you the same answer and all that time adds up. This is just a personal request for the future; no harm done.
I'm trying to make a bootable cd with the ipxe firmware... I know how to do that with the dead gpxe firmware but I changed to ipxe when realized how powerful is that tool.
I used ROM-O-MATIC to make my own script and then chaining the menu default.cfg...
But the problem is that I have no idea how to make my own menu and script compiling the ipxe.iso image...
Are you actually
trying to make a physical CD/DVD? In your last thread, you were trying to use a USB storage device. You said there was no boot-loader, but if it booted anything
, then you were mistaken. If you can identify the boot-loader, then perhaps someone can help you to add iPXE
to your boot-loader's choices.
If you are really
trying to make a physical CD/DVD with only
iPXE on it, simply build/download ipxe.iso
and write it to the optical disc. If you want to build an .ISO
boot-options, then you'll want to look into something like making an ISOLINUX
.ISO, which is documented with Syslinux
inside a Syslinux download.
However, if you are just trying to make an .ISO so that you can try to boot it with some other boot-loader (such as whatever boot-loader "Yumi
" uses), then, in my opinion, You're Doing It Wrong. Whatever boot-loader "Yumi" uses can probably boot iPXE and your other tools directly, without wrapping things in an .ISO.
Greeetings to everyone!
And to you!
