modify default PXE setup

Post#1 by guimenez » 11 May 2015, 16:10

i'm testing Porteus with PXE suport and it works fine.
Is it possible to change the default menu to work with another software like clonezilla?

pxelinux works the same way as syslinux so you would have to edit its config (/srv/pxe/boot/pxelinux.cfg/default in live filesystem) to load clonezilla kernel/ramdisk.
you also have to edit /opt/porteus-scripts/pxe-server to offer clonezilla ISO in the NFS shares.

finally: you need to modify clonezilla init script to mount NFS share offered by the server and boot from the clonezilla ISO.

bit of work.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
