ERPXE - Vmware Installs

Post by drayton95 » 30 Jun 2015, 09:34

Hi,
I've recently started to try and get vmware working on my erpxe set up.
However everytime I try to boot it, it would complain about mboot.32 not being valid, I have managed to get past this message by using syslinux 5.02's mboot.c32
However now I get the message

Code: Select all

Loading er/plugins/vmware/esxi5/boot.cfg... ok
Invalid Multiboot image: neither ELF header nor a.out kludge found


I'm trying to boot up the version 5 installer, and I have followed the steps on the plugin page, but it is still not working..

Has anyone managed to get around this?

Any help would be highly appreciated, thanks

This is the build off the iso, I downloaded from their website

VMware-VMvisor-Installer-5.0.0.update01-623860.x86_64

the first prob is the mboot file you are using, use the mboot file included in the vmware iso.
make sure to edit the boot.cfg included in the cd, it should be something like this:

Code: Select all

bootstate=0
title=Loading ESXi installer
kernel=/er/plugins/vmware/esxi5/tboot.b00
kernelopt=runweasel
prefix=/er/plugins/vmware/esxi5/
modules=b.b00 --- useropts.gz --- k.b00 --- a.b00 --- ata-pata.v00 --- ata-pata.v01 --- ata-pata.v02 --- ata-pata.v03 --- ata-pata.v04 --- ata-pata.v05 --- ata-pata.v06 --- ata-pata.v07 --- block-cc.v00 --- ehci-ehc.v00 --- s.v00 --- weaselin.i00 --- ima-qla4.v00 --- ipmi-ipm.v00 --- ipmi-ipm.v01 --- ipmi-ipm.v02 --- misc-cni.v00 --- misc-dri.v00 --- net-be2n.v00 --- net-bnx2.v00 --- net-bnx2.v01 --- net-cnic.v00 --- net-e100.v00 --- net-e100.v01 --- net-enic.v00 --- net-forc.v00 --- net-igb.v00 --- net-ixgb.v00 --- net-nx-n.v00 --- net-r816.v00 --- net-r816.v01 --- net-s2io.v00 --- net-sky2.v00 --- net-tg3.v00 --- ohci-usb.v00 --- sata-ahc.v00 --- sata-ata.v00 --- sata-sat.v00 --- sata-sat.v01 --- sata-sat.v02 --- sata-sat.v03 --- scsi-aac.v00 --- scsi-adp.v00 --- scsi-aic.v00 --- scsi-bnx.v00 --- scsi-fni.v00 --- scsi-hps.v00 --- scsi-ips.v00 --- scsi-lpf.v00 --- scsi-meg.v00 --- scsi-meg.v01 --- scsi-meg.v02 --- scsi-mpt.v00 --- scsi-mpt.v01 --- scsi-mpt.v02 --- scsi-qla.v00 --- scsi-qla.v01 --- uhci-usb.v00 --- tools.t00 --- imgdb.tgz --- imgpayld.tgz
