PXE Boot install

Postby checkout » 2018-01-26 19:48

Hi there,

I work on a PXE boot with preseed file in Debian 9. It run but I always crash on a menu "No common CD-ROM drive was detected" and I don't understand.
The iso file is on a tftp server there is no CD-ROM/USB media, how can I shoot this window in the preseed file ?

Thx.

Replace initrd. gz and vmlinuz with those from netbook. tar. gz (netboot kernel and parameters) and post the result.

Thanks very much, it works !

Now I have another error message:
"no network interfaces detected"

So I think I will skip the hardware detection.

Ok so no it doesn't work !

I need to mount the iso file on the tftp server so my cfg file (pxelinux.cfg/default) is:
# D-I config version 2.0
#include debian-installer/amd64/boot-screens/bootscreen-custom.cfg
default install
label install
menu background debian-installer/amd64/boot-screens/debian.png
menu label ^New System
menu default
kernel debian-installer/amd64/linux
append auto=true vga=788 priority=critical preseed.cfg initrd=iso/install.amd/initrd.gz -- quiet
prompt 0
timeout 0

default debian-installer/amd64/boot-screens/vesamenu.c32

When I start the computer, he ask me the cdrom drive how I can specify it ?

I mount the debian iso in ISO folder.

It seems that your hardware is not recocnized by the Debian ISO. Maybe you need some nonfree firmware for the network card or a newer kernel.
Please try the FAI.me service, which creates a customized ISO image, including non-free firmware and a backports kernel. Then you will see if this solves your problems.
