PXE Boot Menu Background
I have just installed our PXE boot server using PXE which chainloads iPXE http://ipxe.org/. iPXE loads a menu.cfg which displays a nice menu which allows our employees to choose what to boot (Ghost, GParted, UBCD etc.).
The menu etc. all works fine. To spice it up a bit i want to add a menu background. I know this is possible but i keep failing. I tried to use the following file as a test: http://www.howtoforge.com/images/pxe...oforge_pxe.png
Here is my menu.cfg:
Notice the crap at the top of the screen. That colored line dissapears when i use an 8 bit PNG but the background stays black. I've tried alot of different "How To's" i found online.
Could someone please assist me in this? I'm quite lost :cry:
The link you provided didn't work, this one does: http://www.howtoforge.com/setting-up...ubuntu-9.10-p3
Permissions we're set to root, i changed the splash.png to nobody and nogroup and chmodded the file to 777.
I am not using the tftpboot directory because i'm using iPXE which boots the menu.cfg described above. All these files reside in my www directory because iPXE allows for booting over HTTP.
I will try and check if this helped later today.
Sorry for the late reply but things got a little busy last week :-) I set the permissions to what is stated above but it sadly did not work.
 I found a site called netboot.me today and took a look at their bootscripts. I copied the whole thing and dumped it into my menu.cfg
The rest of the screen stays black :(
