View Full Version : [ubuntu] PXE boot failing with Jaunty

September 21st, 2009, 08:03 AM
I am trying to convert an existing Jaunty install to a PXE boot configuration. I went through the steps at this website:


but the client does not get very far in the boot process. I had the same setup running with Hardy and the server configuration has not changed, so I'm pretty sure it's a problem with the client.

When I boot, I get the following errors. I believe this indicates that something is going wrong with ethernet just before the NFS root filesystem is mounted, but I'm not sure what or even if this is the case. Any help would be appreciated. Just let me know if you need to see any config files on the client or server. Thanks in advance.
