[ipxe-devel] Debian installer preseed example not working

Yes and just as a side note this would probably not work over https, since the debian installer initrd doesn’t have the ca-certificates to verify the trust of https connections (if I recall correctly).
So actually adding it as an extra file or cpio initrd sounds like a workaround for that.

It must be the complete URL, for example "preseed/url=".

Hello Bernhard,

IPXE Debian preseed example. Where to put the pressed.cfg?

I put the preseed.cfg on the webserver '' and point to it by using
the following ipxe config. It is a single file in the root called preseed.cfg.
Find an example file attached.

kernel /ipxe/jessie64/debian-installer/amd64/linux vga=788 interface=auto auto=true netcfg/dhcp_timeout=60 preseed/url= hostname=debian domain=gmvl.de
initrd /ipxe/jessie64/debian-installer/amd64/initrd.gz
