Dear iPXE developers,
I am currently testing iPXE with a notebook which seems to be unable to
chainload EFI images via HTTP and TFTP. I tried loading a Linux kernel
with an EFI stub included and the EFI binary of SYSLINUX.
Both attempts results in the error message which you can see in the
I used the following iPXE script snippet to load the Linux kernel:
kernel http://felix.mein-iserv.de/tftpboot/efi64/install ||
initrd http://felix.mein-iserv.de/tftpboot/efi64/miniroot.bz2 ||
imgargs install dn=i.local panic=5 initrd=miniroot.bz2 lang=de
video=vesa:ywrap,mtrr vga=791 service=felix.mein-iserv.de pckey=
consoleblank=3600 rootpwd=<redacted> hn=win-10-64-01 ||
I also compiled an iPXE binary with enabled EFI basic debug facilities.
I shot a second picture with the resulting output:
The issue could maybe related to secure boot. In any case, I did not not
found settings related to it in the firmware settings. On the other hand
the iPXE binary which is also unsigned was loaded without any problem.
So I guess for now that secure boot isn't enabled.
Any help would be appreciated. If you need additional information please
let me know.
Thank you for your time.
