-**Update**+Though we recommend and encourage use of **[[:​download|our git repository]]** to download gPXE and Etherboot releases, we also provide tarballs:
-Please note that some of the code for iSCSI booting of Windows has been temporarily taken out of the gPXE codebase at the request of Microsoft CorporationOne necessary part for iSCSI boot in Windows is the iBFT data structure which Microsoft claims is proprietary at this time.+  * gPXE release tarballs: [[http://​kernel.org/​pub/​software/​utils/​boot/gpxe/]] (preferred, supported, PXE compatible)
-**Update 13 March 2007**+  ​Etherboot release tarballs: [[http://​kernel.org/​pub/​software/​utils/​boot/​etherboot/​]] (legacy, maintenance-mode support)
-Microsoft has released an iBFT specifications document which requires agreeing to a Microsoft License Agreement to download. ​ We have asked the [[http://softwarefreedom.org|Software Freedom Law Center]] to examine the required license and give us an opinion on whether we can safely release open source code based on the specification.+ --- //[[mdc@etherboot.org|Marty Connor]] 2008/​09/​26//​
-**Update 9 August 2007**+----
-IBM has released the iBFT specification document under GPL-friendly terms. ​ The iBFT code, based on the IBM documentis now back in the codebase.  [[:sanboot|Enjoy!]]+{{ http://code.google.com/​images/​code_sm.png?​153x55|GSoC logo}}
