I am trying to boot archlinux using Tftpd64 on a Win7. I also want to build my own image, maybe using archiso. All the wiki I found mount a squash root file system via NFS, HTTP, or NDB. 

 

Here is my thread where I reliazed the issue is getting Tftpd64 to served up a rootfs. https://bbs.archlinu...c.php?id=190677

 

 

I have tried pxelinux.0 and grldr. I found where iPXE will support http, but unless Tftpd64 does then my Win7 box does not. Also to use iPXE I would have to figure out the chain loading from PXE.

If you want to boot through HTTP, you will need a HTTP Server.

 

Maybe what you want/need is this:

http://reboot.pro/fo...iny-pxe-server/

which has both a tftp and a http server, as a matter of fact it was developed to help in PXE booting.
