View Full Version : Ubuntu PXE installation unable to fetch distro

December 11th, 2013, 11:06 PM
I used this tutorial https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/WindowsServerNetboot and, after fiddling with the paths, got my pc tablet to boot to the Ubuntu install.

My problem is that I cannot connect to the server either via DHCP or the tablets wifi to download the install files, if it matters I am on a school network so I cannot disable DHCP.

PXE is my only option as I cannot boot via USB and there is no cd drive.

I also do not have a keyboard since it is a tablet (Gateway M1300)

The real question is, is there a way to access the files via LAN?

p.s. I am using the 10.04 Netboot files as they were the only ones available
