> I try to boot DOS 6.22 from network with PXE. I have an VIA EPIA 5000 mainboard with on-board network card with built in PXE. The image is downloaded to the client successfully, but when is starts to boot, I get a "non-system disk or disk error" error message and the PC hangs. > I read over the archive and found some ideas, but no success with them... > I changed the boot sector ( to altboot.bin), the result is better, I get a "Starting MS-DOS" message and the PC hangs... > The PXE bootstap image is from rom-o-matic. > > If somebody has experience with this, please help me. to boot a DOS floppy image with a PXE-capable card (not etherboot / netboot): - create an image of the floppy: dd if=/dev/fd0 of=floppy.img - copy the image to your tftp-server directory (e.g. /tftpboot) - copy pxelinux.0 and memdisk of the syslinux package (see http://syslinux.zytor.com ) to your tftp-server directory - create a sub-dir 'pxelinux.cfg' - create the file 'pxelinux.cfg/default': DEFAULT dos TIMEOUT 0 LABEL dos KERNEL memdisk append initrd=floppy.img - the DHCP server configuration should contain a line like this one: filename "/tftpboot/pxelinux.0"; Cheers Alex -- send fax $pam to +49190819141676 or 0190819141676 (1.86 Euro/min) =========================================================================== This Mail was sent to netboot mailing list by: Alexander Heinz <email@example.com> To get help about this list, send a mail with 'help' as the only string in it's body to firstname.lastname@example.org.
