Hi, I can't get Clonezilla live to work with BMC97711E.

I have a couple of old versions of clonezilla jaunty 20090426/ karmic 20090919 that work if I boot from the CD. It recognizes the NICs once in clonezilla.
But when I try to PXE-boot, I only get kernel-panic.
The newer versions (eg 20100908) don't even recognize the NICs in Clonezilla.

We have HP BL460c G2/G6. The G2 work great (they have an older Broadcom) but the G6 (with BMC97711E) just doesn't want to PXE-boot.

    Hi,

    I had no problem boot the machine and the NICs are properly detected and supported.

    /Jodo

    Could you give Clonezilla live 20100921-maverick a try?

    Steven.

    I manage to run it by mounting the iso and the NICs work just fine.

    But when i try to PXE boot it. I just end up with the following (screenshot attached) "Waiting for live-config to be finished" and just waits there forever.

    The boot-parameters, that we are using, for PXE are the following:

    label Clonezilla Live (Ubuntu 20100921-maverick)
    menu label Clonezilla Live (^Ubuntu 20100921-maverick)
    kernel clonezilla/ubuntu-G6/vmlinuz1
    append initrd=clonezilla/ubuntu-G6/initrd1.img boot=live union=aufs noswap noprompt vga=791 ip=frommedia fetch=http://XX.XX.XX.XX/.../filesystem.squashfs ocs_live_keymap=/usr/share/keymaps/i386/qwerty/se-latin1.kmap.gz
