We have updated the PXE Boot Agent using BootUtil (on Linux x86_64) from 1.2.32 to 1.5.85 (latest) and impossible to get the "Ctrl-S" prompt at startup.
The "Ctrl-S" prompt is not shown so impossible to enter the Configuration Setup Menu.
Ethernet Adapter with 1.2.32 is displaying the Ctrl-S while none with 1.5.85 display it (same hardware).
There is no "-setupenable" switch with BootUtil.
the -bootenable does change nothing or
"Repeatedly press Ctrl+Simmediately after POST until the Configuration Setup Menu appears." as suggested in the troubleshooting guide does not work.
Thanks for your help
Sorry for the delay,.
Many thanks for your answer.
I don't know the exact model of the Ethernet card.
- Quard-Port PCI-X 133MHz Ethernet with Intel® 82546GB Dual MAC/PHY chipset.
- Dual-Port PCI-X 133MHz Ethernet with Intel® 82546EB Dual MAC/PHY chipset.
- Dual-Port PCIe D33682
There is other model too not listed here.
You will say me that they are quite old Ethernet Card :) I understand this but they are working well.
So I don't understand why PXE prompt <Ctrl-S> is displayed with 1.2.32 and not with 1.5.X
Servers which are hosting these eth cards are DELL or HP.
BootUtil identify them as card that can be updated.
A simple ./bootutil64e list them.
Update as been made under Linux x86_64 using the following command:
./bootutil64e -NIC=X -UPDATE=PXE -FILE=../BootIMG.FLB
Original ROM has been backup during update.
Thank you for your answer.
Does it means that due to the no longer availability of MESSAGEENABLE or -MSE it is why there is no more <Ctrl-S> and no access to configuration menu at startup ?
It is for all Network Adapters or for only old one as mine ?
I will try to reflash adapters using version 20.2.
Do you think that I can use only bootutil from 20.2 with -MSE and use the BootIMG.FLB from last version ?
