PXE Boot Errors

Post by supertight » Tue Jul 17, 2018 7:56 pm

I've been trying to add Cinnamon to my PXE boot menu.

I searched around and found some helpful stuff on this forum. However, I'm still not having success. The existing network structure is working fine.

- Menu pops up
- tftp serves up vmlinuz & initrd.lz
- nfs provides the folder with all the install files

Before completing the install, the process errors out and sets into emergency mode.

This is what my pxe config looks like

Code: Select all

LABEL cinnamon
        MENU LABEL ^Cinnamon
        KERNEL cinnamon/vmlinuz
        APPEND boot=casper initrd=cinnamon/initrd.lz netboot=nfs nfsroot=172.16.0.2:/cinnamon locale=de_DE keymap=de biosdevname=0 net.ifnames=0 --
Some help for a Mint noob? I've done all I can with Google-Foo.

It's a known bug from Ubuntu 1804 ... just add "systemd.mask=tmp.mount" without the qoutes of course ... worked for me
In a World of Linux ... who needs Windows and Gates ?
