Re: netboot arm (not 64) with UEFI ?

Hi Manuel --

It should be possible. You'll need to load bootarm.efi somehow, then "bootefi" it, and in the UEFI boot loader, "boot net0:netbsd" IIRC.

This all depends on U-Boot's UEFI implementation exposing a EFI_SIMPLE_NETWORK_PROTOCOL interface for the corresponding ethernet device. The "dev" command in the UEFI boot loader will print any devices found.

Take care,

I know how to netboot (PXE+tftp) an ARM device from u-boot, but this
uses the netbsd.ub kernel format. It looks like usual way to boot NetBSD
is now to use the UEFI boot loader.
Is there a way to automatically netboot from the UEFI boot loader ?
