Re: pxeboot stuck for ThinkPad PXE
A followup to my own;
Someone out there did have pxeboot stuck symptom with
ThinkPad PXE boot sequence?
I managed to boot off my A21m. The most challenging was
dead CPU fan symptom. I made a hard breath blow to the
back and YES the fan started spinning. Believe me, the
urban myth is true (!)
I found that the pxeboot stuck is persist with reasonably
recent -current iso. Deeper dig brought me some insight
about what's going. When multiple DHCP relies are sent
back to initial pxeboot request (under multiple DHCP server
environment) , the pxeboot gets confused and sends out
very errneous UDP frame DURING the boot-off sequence.
The symptom does occur statistitcally. My guess the addition
of boot.cfg makes the potential wreck of libsa revealed in day
light. More analysis will follow.
