Hello,

I'm trying to PXE boot 7.0-RELEASE, but it stops at a time.

At boot I see the following on the screen:
BIOS drive C: is disk0
BIOS drive D: is disk1

PXE version 2.1, real mode entry point @9188:0106
BIOS 517kB/3406144kB available memory

Can't work out which disk we are booting from.
Guessed BIOS device 0xffffffff not found by probes, defaulting to disk0

can't loader 'kernel'

Type '?' for a list of commands, 'help' for more detailed help.
OK lsdev

on the server I see t serving pxeboot via tftp, and mounting the root via NFS:
Jun  6 11:38:22 nfs dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 00:30:48:8d:00:36 via eth1
Jun  6 11:38:22 nfs dhcpd: DHCPOFFER on 10.0.0.32 to 00:30:48:8d:00:36 via eth1

Jun  6 11:38:25 nfs dhcpd: DHCPACK on 10.0.0.32 to 00:30:48:8d:00:36 via eth1
Jun  6 11:38:25 nfs mountd[2120]: authenticated mount request from 
10.0.0.32:1023 for /wwwbladebsd (/wwwbladebsd) (around 30-40 from these NFS 
mount messages in the log).

The NFS server is a linux box right now.

The dhcpd.conf:
host blade1 {
  hardware ethernet 00:30:48:8d:00:36;
  fixed-address 10.0.0.32;
  server-name "10.0.0.1";
  filename "/bsd/pxeboot";
  next-server 10.0.0.1;
  option root-path "/wwwbladebsd/";
}

i'm using "atftpd" with /tftpboot as root directory. /tftpboot/bsd/ is a
symlink to the root system's /boot .

I've NFS-exported /wwwbladebsd/, and that seems to work.

The question is, why loader is unable to load the kernel?
How could I force the loader to use tftp instead of NFS?

Or using any other solutions, how can I make this box boot?
If I've left out outsomething from here, please tell me, I will post it.

Thanks in advance.
