Summary

TFTPd (tftpd-hpa) is running and default a pxelinux based menu is served. At this point it is possible to:

  • Run memtest
  • Run debian and ubuntu installers
  • Run partedmagic, a nice diskrescue oriented live linux desktop

Config

Using HARKboot

  • Connect your x86 PC/laptop using UTP (wifi won't work)
  • Make sure "boot from LAN" is selected in your computer's BIOS
  • Boot up your machine

Installing a new image

LABEL ubuntu64-16.04
 MENU LABEL ubuntu64 16.04 installer
 LINUX entries/ubuntu-16.04/amd64/linux
 APPEND initrd=entries/ubuntu-16.04/amd64/initrd.gz


Todo

  • DOS image
  • Netbootstuff on the internet
  • Use iPXE or gPXE instead of pxelinux in order to make conditional stuff possible (serve sparc stuff for sun, etc)
