PXE boot error "could not read from the boot medium"
|Reported by:||jodbe||Owned by:|
I suppose an error in the default linux client config.
In my system i noticed the following: When i configure a new WindowsXP-Box with network bridge this box is able to boot from a PXE server in my network. When i configure a new Debian Linux64 Box with network bridge then this box is NOT able to boot from my PXE-Server, the box is stopped with the following error "could not read from the boot medium". When i configure a new WindowsXP-Box with network bridge and boot by my PXE-Server a Debian Squeeze64 it will install perfecty. After the installation i change the OS-type to Debian64 and everything is working well.
I have tryed this with other linux client configs with the same result. I have have tested with and without CD-ROM drive or image and with different boot orders with no effect.
My Hardware is a new Intel Core i5 2400S on a Asus P8H67-V (Sandybridge EFI-BIOS) 16GB RAM and SSD. VirtualBox 4.0.4 is installd on Debian 6 Squeeze 64-Bit.
