PXE Boot example?
(03-05-2018, 02:38 PM)lewis Wrote: Hi all,

I'm a noob here, so please go gentle!

I have a dnsmasq server (DHCP disabled) set up on my network which currently supplies Centos7 to a handful of i386 machines. This works perfectly!

I would now like to also boot my new Rock64 machine off the same server.

My problem is that I have no idea what files to install into the tftp directory to accomplish this.

I know that I need to configure the 'main' DHCP server (Windowz) to point at the correct file (not pxelinux.0).

I have loaded u-boot into the board's rom and it loos as though it is talking to the DHCP server...

... that's where I'm up to!

1) What files do I need to copy into the TFTP server? I am looking to install  https://github.com/ayufan-rock64/linux-b...m64.img.xz

2) How can I tell that the machine connecting to the DHCP server is a Rock64?

Kind regards

The ayufan's SPI Flash implementation has PXE boot capability. Here the link: http://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/NOOB#Fl..._SPI_Flash
