    Default Configuring PXE NIC


    Hello,

    I am currently training and I have to manage an installed base of about 150 machines.

    My project to install a server for FOG-TV broadcast images over the network system timed and planned.

    The installation of this server was made, but a problem clouding the project: the impact of NICs to boot over the network to get the system image.

    Many of these cards support WOL (Wake On Lan). My question: can a WOL-compliant card she always boot from the network and access images stored?

    In the BIOS, the only choice I BOOT priority on some machines: "Legacy LAN". Is this the PXE network boot as we used to see, or is it to something else? If this is not the same thing, that answers my question and the cards are not compatible network boot.

    WOL is the ignition system, so it will activate the station's all. To boot over the network requires that the NIC is PXE. All are not pro range but that's not-quite some time that they are.

    Legacy lan is when you put a second NIC in the PC. The first is always the internal (built)

    In the boot order you have to put the network card before the hard disk. Sometimes it is the reference of the map that appears, other times it is "PXE", or sometimes it's" int lan "(Integrated System).

    Attention also must sometimes activate a menu for PXE network card that appears in the selection of devices at startup.

    Possibly legacy lan "can boot the integrated network adapter.

    A solution may be a CD or diskette gPXE: if the NIC does not Roma, you can make a network boot through it.

    Normally almost all PC compatible BIOS network boot provided that the network card has a boot ROM!

    If there is an integrated network adapter is usually bootable.

    On the boot disk, it would mean that each re-ghostage, I would have to pass for position by position to boot, one after another. Now I want to develop a solution to automate this task in the future.

    I believe that a good half of the park's computers can not boot from the network. These are items for students, and many are beginning to date.

    If I wanted to buy network cards, what is the characteristic that would indicate to me that card is PXE? At sites of manufacturers, I see nothing that would certify me.

    Start date? I have positions in 2002 that PXE network interfaces. I'd pay more attention to see if are pro or not.

    In the features there must be an indication or PXE boot rom. In general, Intel are. D-Link, you have to buy a rom to put on the map.

    The problem is that the ICP begins to disappear. So asks a supplier for a quote, you will see what you offer.

    I bought two gigabit network adapters, TP-Link TG-3468 in PCIe 1x, are sold for ten euros only.

    pleasant surprise they are bootable! I suppose there is a flash memory directly into the chip, and they have it because it does not cost anything (perhaps less than a support for an EPROM).

    Well pleased with this newly designed gear that does not "worth" anything.
