Notes

If you are using an iPXE script that may retry downloads, then it is usually a good idea to use the imgfree command to ensure that you do not end up with multiple copies of downloaded images. For example:

  #!ipxe
  
  :retry
  imgfree  # Discard any already-downloaded images
  kernel vmlinuz-2.6.32 || goto retry
  initrd initrd.img || goto retry
  boot || goto retry
