Definitions. Let's define some key terms used on this and following documents. BIOS: The BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) is a PC pre- OS environment, a type of firmware mainly used to initialize, test the system hardware components, and to load a boot manager or an operating system boot loader from a mass memory or network device. EFI/UEFI: The EFI (Extensible Firmware Interface) initially introduced by Intel in 1.
UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface). It is designed as a successor to BIOS, aiming to address its technical shortcomings. In this document we use the terms . PXE is an environment to boot computers from a server using a network device independently of available mass storage devices or installed operating systems. It relies mainly on DHCP and TFTP services and it is implemented either as a Network Interface Card (NIC) BIOS extension or today in modern devices as part of their UEFI firmware. In this document we use the terms .
In multi boot PXE the NBP is a Boot Manager (BM) able to display a menu of the available booting options. RIS: Back in the days of Windows 2. Microsoft's net install attempts were carried out by the Remote Installation Services (RIS). After a couple of updates RIS ended up net installing Windows 2. Windows XP, and Windows Server 2.
It can be considered PXE based with some MS custom extensions. WDS: The Windows Deployment Service (WDS) is the updated and redesigned version of RIS.
It is able to perform network installs of Windows Vista and up. It can also install the old RIS OSs when their images are conveniently assembled. BINL. The Boot Information Negotiation Layer (BINL) service is a key component of RIS and WDS. It includes certain preparation processes and a network protocol that could be somehow considered a Microsoft crafted DHCP extension. BINL+: Serva BINL extension able to process Non- Windows systems.
Serva documentation refers to it just as BINL. WID: A Windows Install Distribution (WID) is the whole set of files and its directory structure as it is found within any Microsoft OS install CD, DVD, or ISO file.
WIA: A Serva Windows Installation Asset or just Windows Asset (WIA) is either a WID, or a stand alone Windows PE bootable image, successfully processed by Serva BINL. A WIA can be offered for network boot/install by Serva's PXE/BINL net services. NWA: A Serva Non- Windows Asset (NWA) is any Non- Windows based bootable/installable distribution successfully processed by Serva BINL. A NWA can be offered for network boot/install by Serva's PXE/BINL net services. Serva is able to run on anything from Windows 2. Windows 1. 0. b) Net booting target PCs (PXE clients) installing over the net anyone of the available versions of MS Windows.
Fig 1: Hardware Lay- out. Notes The PXE standard requires a wired network connection for Target PCs. Serva PC can either use a wired or wireless network connection (Notebooks, Netbooks, NUCs, etc.). Serva and Gigabit connectivity (even on modest hardware) offers the fastest way available today for installing any Microsoft OS. PXE Client UEFI/BIOS set- up. When a PC boots- up its basic input/output system firmware (BIOS) turns the PC hardware into a functioning system able to boot an OS.
PC makers have increasingly been replacing BIOS with the newer Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI). There's a UEFI/BIOS parameter called boot option priority list which dictates the order in which the PC will attempt to boot from its ready to boot devices. They could be local SATA/ATA/SCSI HDDs, USB HDDs, CD/DVD drives, or .
In the last case the PC firmware downloads to RAM and runs a Network Bootstrap Program (NBP) starting a boot/install process directly from the network. PCs trying to perform a network boot/install must set their boot option priority list headed by the network card device that connects to the booting network. In Serva's PXE/BINL case the NBP is a Boot Manager (BM) which displays a menu of the available boot/install options.
Virtual machines implement emulated UEFI/BIOS environments where the boot option priority list can also be defined. Fig 2: Boot option priority list configured for Network Boot on UEFI and BIOS PCs Most UEFI systems include a . Serva v. 2. X BM (pxeserva.
BIOS systems (or UEFI systems running in . Serva v. 3. X BMs (pxeserva. UEFI systems not requiring . Failing to do this would take the target to the beginning of a new net install cycle.
DHCP server vs. At this point we know we need a DHCP server; Serva is a DHCP server. But, what if we already have a working DHCP server on our network? Let's go even further; what if we have no access/permission to change its configuration at all?
Here are the 2 scenarios explained: Fig 3: proxy. DHCP vs DHCP server scenarios. In the first case we already have a working DHCP server assigning and administering IP addresses but not providing booting information, then Serva acting just like a . Let's consider you run Serva from C: \SERVA\ directory. Serva requires full read/write permissions on its running directory in order to keep updated its configuration file Serva. When running Serva. Alternatively you can directly access Serva's Settings dialog box by double- clicking the application icon at the title bar.
Configuring Serva's TFTP server. The initial stages on a network install require TFTP file transfers, then we start Serva and go to the TFTP Settings tab.
This directory in fact will become Serva's . Serva needs full read/write permissions on this directory; i. In case of problems try binding it to the Serva's NIC/IP address that physically connects to the install subnet.
Since version 2. 0 Serva includes 2 faster modes besides classic RFC 1. They are able to dramatically improve TFTP transfer rates.
Remember BINL is not just only a DHCP protocol extension but also a set of preparation and maintenance procedures run every time Serva is started. In non- automated scenarios where you might, for some reason, need full control over the Preboot Execution Environment please remember to uncheck the BINL checkbox. DHCP vs DHCP server. Remember what we said before; if you already have a working DHCP server then just select the proxy. DHCP mode. On this mode you will not be required to define IP address assignation related parameters and those dialog box fields will be automatically grayed- out.
This also implies the need of an external DHCP server for regular IP/MASK assignation. Fig 5- 6: proxy. DHCP vs DHCP server settings. Notes The DHCP/proxy. DHCP service does not usually need to be bound to an specific Serva's NIC/IP address. In case of problems try binding it to the Serva's NIC/IP address that physically connects to the install subnet. The variable . In case of TFTP transfer problems try manually setting it to the Serva's NIC/IP address that physically connects to the install subnet.
When the PXE client resides on a virtual environment that already includes a virtual DHCP server like VMware, setting Serva as proxy. DHCP is always the best option. The MAC filter engine allows Serva to discriminate and decide which clients will or will not receive Serva DHCP/Proxy. DHCP services based on their MAC addresses. Graphical user interface settings. Serva's DHCP Setting tab allows quickly to define up to 1.
MAC filter entries. The MAC filter combo box field configures the engine as: MAC Filter. Off - All DHCP requests are honored. In the second case every bit of the MASK set to 1 anchors as “required- for- matching” the corresponding bit on the preceding MAC address. This way it's very simple to define a group of related MAC addresses just in a single entry.
Whitelist/Blacklist settings. When 1. 0 MAC filter entries are not enough it is possible to define unlimited number of entries by manually creating a whitelist or blacklist file next to Serva. At this point, on restart, we'll see Serva BINL creates its repository initial empty structure. Open All . Please consider: a) WIA. Additional steps for 6. Bit RIS OSs. C: \> junction C: \SERVA.
Sad but true, I need it - for now. Downloaded the last version of Ubuntu 1. Made a bootable CD from the iso- file.
Reboot in EFI- mode. BIOS - > check, ubuntu boot screen - > check. Both indicating the system is running both CD and HDD in EFI mode. Pressing both . Then silence and a blank screen.
I would really be greatfull for some suggestions : ).
