    I'm using the latest Proxmox VE 8.0.4 and I'm trying to get the iPXE network boot to work. When I configure an VM with EFI bios everything works perfectly, but VM's with Seabios iPXE cannot get an DHCP address. The VM's both use the same bridge network. (vmbr0) I analyzed the network packets...

    Running PVE nodes from iPXE boot and one-off NFS clone into ramdisk?

    So I am completely aware this would be considered officially unsupported as already installing PVE on top of Debian is, however I basically would like to hear from someone who attempted the same or abandoned doing so and why.

    Hello, I have a new VLAN 8. This network supports network boot and tftp settings. Requests that are network booted from a KVM host that is tagged on VLAN 8 get the right IP from DHCP, then goes to fetch the pxelinux.0 from my nas. This works as well as the file is downloaded, but then it just...

    Change PXE ROM

    Is it possible to replace iPXE with PXELinux (or something that works like usual hardware PXE)? I already have PXE server that works perfectly and I don't want to change its configuration. But also I want to boot my VMs as physical machines. Google for an hour but with no luck.
