PXE Boot failed "error 19" over pxelinux.cfg - HowTo?

  • Hello,

    i tryed to make PFSense Bootup over PXE.

    • I configured the DHCP-Server
    • I've build the pxelinux.cfg/default
    PROMPT 5
    DEFAULT local
    TIMEOUT 50
    DISPLAY welcome.msg
    label local
                 LOCALBOOT 0
    label 1
                 kernel memdisk
                 append initrd=pfsense_2.3.2_64/pfSense-CE-memstick-2.3.2-RELEASE-amd64.img raw
    label 2
                 kernel memdisk
                 append initrd=pfsense_2.3.2_i386/pfSense-CE-memstick-2.3.2-RELEASE-i386.img raw
    label 3
                 kernel openSuSE_13.2_64/linux
                 append initrd=openSuSE_13.2_64/initrd
    label 4
                 kernel openSuSE_13.2_i386/linux
                 append initrd=openSuSE_13.2_i386/initrd
    • I also tryed to Boot directly from the ISO:
    label 2
                 kernel memdisk
                 append iso initrd=pfsense_2.3.2_i386/pfSense-CE-2.3.2-RELEASE-i386.iso cdrom raw

    The Error-Message is still "Mounting from cd9660:/dev/iso9660/PFSENSE failed with error 19."


    • And also via direct PXE-Path
    label 1
                 pxe pfsense/pxeboot

    Than i have seen, that the Image tryed to be loaded from NFS. Thats okay for me, but it failed also to load the "kernel" (see attachment)
    (Yes, i set the Root-Path in the DHCP-Server)

    So what is the correct way to Boot equal i386 or 64 Bit directly via PXE?
    My openSuSE works great.

    I read in some entrys that i had to load the "pxeboot" from the /boot/. Where should this been enterd?
    Does anybody have had some sample-files for me?

    Thanks a lot

  • Guys, is my Problem so special?  :P
    Still need help to boot over PXE

  • Did you succeed ?
    I'm trying to do the same here, with the same issues so far …

  • Banned

  • You could try PXE booting mfsbsd and then fetch pfSense. Maybe I'll try and set it up out of curiosity…
