How can you tftp other files during boot.

Postby mrfishjosh » 28 Mar 2013, 19:16

When loading Acronis, insted of using the providsed instructions, I took the bootable image off of hirens and used it. However there is a Mouse file so you can use the mouse, and another file as welll. it would need to be sent to the booting machine along with initrd etc. is that possible?

The right way is to pack the additional files into the initrd file - try with 7zip, GZip or something similar.

You can send more then one file with the INITRD Statement:

Code: Select all

INITRD initrd.gz,initrd2.gz

Most of the times it won't work and will cause a KERNEL PANIC unless the OS is designed to handle more then one initrd file.

If you are still having issues with this send me your Acronis version with the additional files.
