iPXE is a tool for loading an operating system over a network. It is a fork of GPXE.

Like GPXE uses legacy BIOS callbacks, and it works well with SeaBIOS. See GPXE.

Building and Running in seaBIOS howto

Here are the goals of this howto:

  • fits in 128k for easier building process
  • boot over an ath9k WiFi over an open/unencrypted wifi to an image that resides on the internet...

Building

Booting

  • keep pressing ctrl+b while booting
  • it will give you a shell:

  • You will then need to type some commands to make it boot on the WiFi from the Internet.
  • Identify your ESSID
iwlist
  • set the ESSID
config
  • get an IP Address
dhcp
  • test the official demo (requires a ps2 keyboard)
