i have modified my boot.iso isolinux.cfg file as per below but still not working. Anyone can give an advise? append initrd=initrd.img headless ks=ftp:/... [by tripialos]
I have created a ks.cfg file and placed in the root of my cdrom.
Added append initrd=initrd.img ks=cdrom:/ks.cfg to the isolinux.cfg
When I boot from the CDROM, at the stage the installation is looking for the ks.cfg I receive a message on the screen notifying that the file couldnt be found.
If I wait a few seconds and press OK the installation continues with the ks.cfg file successfully.
when i started the kickstart installation giving the http address of kickstart file it says file not found
i am giving
file=myip/ubuntu/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper initrd=myip/casper/initrd.lz file=myip/ks.cfg --
IP i am giving through http
but it says file not found
is it a method to give the boot menu or any other method to get the kickstart done?
I am trying to get a Red Hat 5.8 box booting via pxe. The box is a virtual machine on ESX5.0 it has a Paravirtual SCSI Controller and VMXNET3 network driver. Now these drivers do not come default in the RHEL5.8 kernel so I have followed some steps on the net to make my own initrd.img file. This is not yet working and any advice on how to get this done would be appreciated.
