    [SOLVED] Localboot 0 doesn't work over pxe

    need some help figuring this out.

    I'm building a pxeboot server for tools and installation of Operating Systems.

    But I'm having trouble with the default option of booting from local disk drive.

    LABEL Local_Drive
     MENU LABEL ^5. Boot Local Drive
     #  localboot 0
     KERNEL chain.c32
     APPEND hd0 0
    When I select this on the client machine, it says "booting..." but nothing happens.

    I'm not sure whats wrong or if syslinux is broken or something.

    I've also tried

    Localboot 0x80
    Localboot 0

    Any ideas? am I missing something?

    OK so I'm an idiot, I wipe the drive few weeks ago and forgot so this whole time I was trying to boot nothing.

    *face palm*

    LOL... thanks for posting back with the solution. Don't feel too badly over it, though, because I think we've all had those moments.
