Step by step guide PXE diskless configuration.
It seems that tftp-hpa is very buggy and hangs randomly. I uninstalled it and installed the regular tftpd daemon that works fine.
The configuration in in /etc/inetd.conf.
The advantage of tftpd is that the boot directory can be a symbolic link to the boot folder under the linux distribution, so when an update is done the boot is automatically updated (but not the boot file that has to be changed manually).
The only difference with tftpd-hpa is that the path is now relative, so instead of kernel /boot/vmlinuz-4.4.154-1124-rockchip-ayufan-ged3ce4d15ec1 you have to use kernel boot/vmlinuz-4.4.154-1124-rockchip-ayufan-ged3ce4d15ec1 without the slash in front of boot. The same for the other boot parameters. The rest is unchanged.
