Re: DHCP Proxy w/ DNSMASQ for PXE boot

Well. Persistence strikes again for the win. After google-foo-ing my butt off and piecing together a couple of Ubuntu tutorials, I was able to get a working configuration. To supplement the standing DHCP server with additional PXE information using DNSMASQ. /etc/dnsmasq.conf port=0 dhcp-range="IP Ra...

Re: DHCP Proxy w/ DNSMASQ for PXE boot

So that's it? I get a reply from a mod who obviously didn't read past the first line, with no information. Awesome. I guess I'll just keep sitting here being frustrated.

Re: DHCP Proxy w/ DNSMASQ for PXE boot

I don't have any control over the current DHCP server. You need it. You cannot have two independent DHCP servers on the same network. Things will get very confused and, as they say, unpredictable results may occur. I'm fully aware only one(1) DHCP server is to be used on a network. However, As stat...

Re: New MOBO, having PXE boot problems.

The USB was tested and functioning properly on another system. Which makes no difference at all if one system is UEFI and the other legacy BIOS. Those use different install methods and use different parts of the DVD and it's those bits that are corrupted by using a "clever" utility that tries to re...

Re: New MOBO, having PXE boot problems.

As for the USB, make sure you are creating it correctly. The best way to do it is with dd, ie. dd if=CentOS-7-something.iso of=/dev/sdx where /dev/sdx is the device name of your USB stick. Many programs that create "bootable USBs" mangle the important bits, leading to the all-too-common "/dev/root ...

Re: New MOBO, having PXE boot problems.

Gparted network booted from my pxe server just fine. Next I tried to start a cent 7 install and that's where the problems started. It keeps doing t...
