Windows PXE server HELP!!!

Post#1 by Egor4eva » 10 Apr 2015, 11:14

Hi there,

I am running windows 7, TFTPD32 (dhcp & tftp server).
Now i can boot winpe, disk images, etc.. from my server
but i can't get Porteus Kiosk to run.
I ran the wizzard enabled PXE, extracted all files from the iso
to my http server & my PXE server.
But it comes up with "Kernal panic"

Am i missing something?

LABEL Kiosk
MENU LABEL Kiosk
TEXT HELP
Kiosk OS
Testing.....:)
ENDTEXT
KERNEL boot/proteus/boot/vmlinuz
APPEND initrd=boot/proteus/boot/initrd.xz ip=SERVER:192.168.23.253/proteus/boot/initrdpxe.xz

Thanks

hello Egor4eva,

1) your APPEND line is not correct as second initrd is split. please try this:

Code: Select all

APPEND initrd=boot/proteus/boot/initrd.xz,boot/proteus/boot/initrdpxe.xz
make sure that both initrds are placed in boot/proteus/boot/ folder (are you sure its "proteus" and not "porteus"?)

2) ip cheatcode: "ip=SERVER:192.168.23.253" is not needed as we use "http_server=some_IP" to tell the init script where unpacked ISO is hosted so just add "http_server=" to the append line.

btw: in the future please post in kiosk section of the forum: Porteus Kiosk Edition

thank you
