Old computers don’t support legacy boot, how can I reach the PXE via UEFI boot?


I have the problem that our new computers do not support legacy boot anymore. Is there a setting in the appliance? Or how can I reach the PXE via UEFI boot?


Hi Jonas, which PXE Version are you running? The latest, 11.2 at least, should do it for sure.


No it is the Firmware Version: 11.04.100 @member


The latest PXE:

fwu.igel.com/files/IGEL_OS_11/IGEL%20OS%20Deployment%20Appliance%2011.2.ova fwu.igel.com/files/IGEL_OS_11/IGEL%20OS%20Deployment%20Appliance%2011.2.ova

and OS 11.04.240 with UEFI:

How are you doing the PXE and TFTP bootfile options via DHCP? If you’re using the appliance, it should automatically switch between BIOS versus UEFI. If you’re using another system for DHCP and pointing to it, you just need to select which bootfile you wish to use for UEFI devices.

Default BIOS file name = pxelinux.0

UEFI 32 bit file name = BOOTX32.EFI

UEFI 64 bit file name = BOOTX64.EFI
