QEMU option ROM

Building the ROM image

Check which network adapter is configured for the VM. The default network adapter is the RTL-8029(AS) (PCI ID 10ec:8029).

Build the appropriate ROM image:

cd gpxe/src
make bin/10ec8029.rom  # for ns8390 10ec:8029

Running QEMU

The -option-rom command-line option tells QEMU to use the gPXE ROM:

qemu -option-rom /path/to/10ec8029.rom /dev/null

This example runs a default VM with no disks and allows you to press Ctrl+B to enter gPXE.
