    RHEL6 + EFI + PXE boot - message display failed


    Hi,

    I am doing PXE boot for RHEL6.4 on EFI and want to display custom messsage before loading vmlinuz and initrd.img, which is not working.


    boot server side (In case of BIOS client):

    In /var/lib/tftpboot/default file I am putting the message in below format:

    SAY hello world

    boot server side(In case of EFI client):

    In /var/lib/tftpboot/efidefault file I am putting the message in below format:

    SAY hello world

    In case of BIOS client machine, message is being displayed successfully but in case of EFI it is not.

    Please suggest any similar method for EFI as its very urgent.

    Regards,
    Indus

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Does the EFI client boot and run successfully?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Then apparently it handles boot messages differently than a BIOS based system does. Time for you to do some googling and documentation reading I think...
