I am currently trying to boot a Windows7.img file from my iSCSI Volume via PXE.
I've gotten my DHCP Options to work and the TFTP Server also seems to work fine (as far as I can tell from the logs - file transfer passes trough without any errors) but for whatever reason while PXE booting the machine downloads the file and then just stops. Nothing else happens.
I have mostly been following this tutorial - not 1:1 as I have no need for a virtual SAN, I have my iscsi volume hosted on a NAS and my Windows Server 2012 R2 acts as the TFTP Server right now - (http://web.archive.o....wordpress.com/ - found by pure chance on stackoverflow) and cross-checked a few things with some posts from Misty on this Forum.
My bootfile is called "ipxe.iso" and the files are configured like this:
# These default options can be changed in the geniso script SAY iPXE ISO boot image TIMEOUT 30 DEFAULT ipxe.lkrn LABEL ipxe.lkrn KERNEL ipxe.krn INITRD conf.ipxe
#!ipxe dhcp net0 sanboot iscsi:<ip of my tftp server>::::<iscsi LUN>.domain:myCompany.de set keep-san 1
I thought that it may have to do with the IP I've written in conf.ipxe so I have changed it to the IP of my NAS and any other server that could possibly be relevant but to no avail.
I try to boot the machines in UEFI Mode since when I'm trying to boot them in Legacy it just stops after DHCP, the client doesn't even try to contact the TFTP Server.
if more information is needed I can give you a full description of any server / file I've tinkered with.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
