Network boot
#1
Hi all,

Is it possible to set up the rockpro64 so I can boot images from my LAN? If find that I sometimes cannot boot from my microSD after I do a soft reboot from within Debian, and I want to avoid re-imaging the microSD every time this happens.

In theory yes. In practice, tell us how you go as likely to be among the first!

PXE links here.
  • ROCKPro64 v2.1 2GB, 16Gb eMMC for rootfs, SX8200Pro 512GB NVMe for /home, HDMI video & sound, Bluetooth keyboard & mouse. Arch (5.16 kernel, Openbox desktop) for general purpose daily PC.
  • PinePhone Pro Explorer Edittion, Tow-boot on SPI, Arch/phosh on eMMC
  • PinePhone BraveHeart now v1.2b 3/32Gb, daily driver: Tow-boot with Arch/Phosh on eMMC
