-====== Burning gPXE into Intel EtherExpress cards ====== +This page has moved to [[intel]]
- +
-<​referback>​This page is part of the [[:​romburning|ROM-burning]] tutorial.</​referback>​ +
- +
-Intel provides a utility called IBAUtil which allows you to update the expansion ROM images on many Intel NICs. +
- +
-===== Supported cards ===== +
- +
-The following cards are known to work: +
- +
-* **8086:​1229** Compaq NC3131, Intel PRO/100 82550/​82551/​82557/​82558/​82559  +
- +
-The following are expected to work: +
- +
-* **8086:​107c** Intel 82541PI PRO/1000 GT Gigabit Ethernet Controller +
- +
-===== Renaming the ROM image ===== +
- +
-Intel'​s IBAUtil ROM-burning tool requires filenames with a //.iba// extension rather than a //.rom// extension. ​ Give your gPXE ROM image a name suitable for IBAUtil: +
- +
-    cp bin/​8086107c.rom bin/​8086107c.iba +
- +
-where //​bin/​8086107c.rom//​ is the gPXE ROM image that you have just built. +
- +
-===== Preparing the tools ===== +
- +
-Download and save the two files: +
- +
-  * A FreeDOS boot disk, [[http://​rom.etherboot.org/​boot/​dosboot.img|dosboot.img]] +
-  * Intel'​s IBAUtil ROM-burning tool, available as part of  [[http://​downloadmirror.intel.com/​8242/​eng/​PROBOOT.exe|PROBOOT.exe]] +
- +
-Copy your gPXE ROM image to the FreeDOS boot disk: +
- +
-    mcopy -i dosboot.img bin/​8086107c.iba :: +
- +
-where //​bin/​8086107c.iba//​ is the renamed gPXE ROM image as created earlier. +
- +
-Run //​PROBOOT.exe//​. ​ This is a Windows application;​ if you don't have a Windows installation available then you should be able to run it under Linux using [[http://​www.winehq.org/​|Wine]]. ​ //​PROBOOT.exe//​ will extract several files to the directory //​C:​\Intel12.3//;​ the only file that you need is //​C:​\Intel12.3\IBAUtil.exe//​. +
- +
-Copy //​IBAUtil.exe//​ to the FreeDOS boot disk: +
- +
-    mcopy -i dosboot.img /​path/​to/​IBAUtil.exe :: +
- +
-where ///​path/​to/​IBAUtil.exe//​ is the path to your extracted copy of //​IBAUtil.exe//​. +
- +
-===== Creating the boot disk ===== +
- +
-Transfer the boot disk image to a floppy disk: +
- +
-    dd if=dosboot.img of=/​dev/​fd0 +
- +
-If you do not have a floppy disk available, you can create a bootable CD-ROM using +
- +
-    mkisofs -b dosboot.img -o dosboot.iso dosboot.img +
- +
-and then burn the ISO image //​dosboot.iso//​ to a recordable CD-ROM. +
- +
-===== Burning the gPXE ROM ===== +
- +
-Boot from the floppy disk (or CD-ROM). ​ At the DOS //A:\>// prompt, type +
- +
-    ibautil -restore -all +
- +
-You should see something like +
- +
-    A:​\>​ibautil -restore -all +
-    Intel(R) Boot Agent Utility +
-    IBAUtil version 4.03.05.06 +
-    Copyright (C) 2002-2007 Intel Corporation +
-     +
-    Restoring image on NIC 1 from file 8086107C.IBA..done +
-     +
-    NIC Network Address Series ​ WOL Boot ROM Type      Version +
-    === =============== ======= === ================== ======= +
-     ​1 ​ 001B210A7760 ​   Gigabit YES PXE/​RPL ​           98.113.250 +
- +
-Reboot the machine and enter the BIOS setup. ​ You should see gPXE show up as an option in your BIOS's boot selection menu. +
- +
-Congratulations on successfully burning gPXE into your network card!+
