I have a Windows Server 2008r2 server, which i have set up as a PXE server.
This server is correctly booting some linux distros at boot (TRK and others). I cannot get SYSTEMRESCUECD working though.
Having read the support docs, i am receiving conflicting advice on what syntax is correct for booting an NFS share.
Below is my sysrcd entry in pxelinux.cfg file:
Code: Select all
#--- LABEL System Rescue CD X64 menu label System Rescue CD X64 KERNEL /linux/systemrescuecd/isolinux/rescue32 [b]CHOICE1[/b]#---append netboot=nfs://192.168.XX.XX:/systemrescuecd root=auto [b]CHOICE2[/b]#---append nfsboot=192.168.XX.XX:/systemrescuecd root=auto #---
Finally ... upon booting a client via pxe I constantly receive the following error:
I have checked that the NFS share on Windows2008R2 has access to ROOT and also has read-write access.VFS: Cannot open root device "auto" or unknown-block(0,0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option; here are the available partitions:
0b00 1048575 sr0 driver: sr
kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
Please could you tell me what the 'root=' option is and what i should be putting in here.
Many thanks for your time.
