Subject: [ipxe-devel] Master Broken?


Can someone help verify if the master branch is currently broken?

I've been attempting to use rom-o-matic.eu to build a new iso image

It boots, and gets to Loading ipxe.krn...ready.



And that is where it stays indefinitely. I'm using vmware 10.0.2 Windows for
this test.

After making 5-6 images that all failed with different configurations, I
grabbed the latest iso from

http://boot.ipxe.org/ipxe.iso, booted it in the same vm, and get to the
exact same failure point.


After assuming I really messed something up, I created a new vm, tried again
with the same results, 

and then finally rebooted the host also with same results.


Finally, using rom-o-matic.eu, I built Git version abf8, and it works as
expected. I built a new image with

The same settings, using master, and get the same failure.


I know this is *never* supposed to happen due to how ipxe is developed, so
can someone else please 

Chime in and tell me if they are having the same results?


I currently don't have a machine I can boot the iso with, for a hardware
test, but I can sometime tomorrow if needed.






I see a8f03 happens to be changes to geniso. I decided after seeing that to
use rom-o-matic and build a

Floppy bootable image (.dsk). That works as expected. I then built another
iso, and failed at the same spot listed above


Vmware seems unwilling to boot the legacy floppy isos, any git revision I
try I get a "Boot error", so I don't know if that 

functionality has changed.
