Comment 2 Jeremy Katz I then used the 3Com software to make an image of the floppy track by track so the PCs could use that image to boot from. However when I use the 3Com software to make the image, the resulting image boots but I can’t install redhat 8. This site requires JavaScript to be enabled to function correctly, please enable it.

You are a star sir, I’ve been after this information for years!! Novell is now a part of Micro Focus. I created the Redhat 8 pxe image the same way I did with 7.

Although I can’t quite get it working! My problem is the 3com tools won’t read the linux formatted floppy and stops.

The floppy boots the machine and I am able to install redhat from a ftp server. I don’t want to keep burning CDs, so I started using the ftp install with 7.

SYS, it does not really matter what file names you want to use, I used those that I did, to help both you as well as myself understand what it is that I have 3om. I first wanted to try to use our 3Com PXE boot files on the Novell side of things, which worked well and then afterwards tried combining the ZENworks files. The floppy booted and everything installed like it did on the other attempts.


I downloaded the bootdisk. When I setup the menu to install redhat pxr, the PC boots from the image, but it can’t find the ramdisk or kernel images.

WinPE with 3Com PXE Boot

These services are now turned off and the XP box now only runs the ghostcast servers. Everything I have been reading has been driving me nuts because its all Linux based.

– doesn’t work with 3com pxe server

Create boot disk from redhat 8 bootnet. Did something change in the way the bootnet. I followed the same procedure using the redhat 8 bootnet.

Was able to use the 3com tools to make a few pze my tools and HP utils accessible via pxe. Results 1 to 14 of I then tried altering the options on the append line.

You could also set up a linux box for PXE instead of the 3Com software. Sorry for thread necromancy.


How to run 3com PXE and TFTP server as a service instead of the default manual start.

Any help is much appreciated, I yearn 3ckm the day when I can boot to any PC and do an image. Tags for this Thread ghostnetwork boot; imagingpxe. I am going to try to examine the ramdisk tomorrow if I have time.

Comment 4 Michael Fulbright Hope this is useful. The student presses enter and install works. Many of the our new mini notebooks don’t have cd roms drives built in and was trying to make memtest86 accessible thru pxe. Login [x] Log in using an account from:
