I'm trying to load linux on an embedded board currently with no OS so I can only communicate through a serial line. I followed multiple pxe setup tutorials, mainly http://shirwablog.com/?p=26
. When I boot the device and attempt to boot over network I can see the MAC so I added it to my DHCP table on my router and gave it a static IP. I configured dhcp, have all services working, all images and files in proper directories, and have tried multiple hardware setups (isolated the board and pxe server on a switch, etc..). Any thoughts?
