Updating the PXE

If you are installing the adapter in an x86 system, and you plan to use Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) functionality, you might need to update the Converged Network Adapter PXE under the BIOS and UEFI environments. This section provides the following PXE information:

PXE Operating Systems

Supported operating systems for the BIOS PXE installation include:

  • Windows Server 2008 R2 including SP1 64-bit

  • SLES 11 SP2 64-bit

  • RedHat 5.9 and 6.4 64-bit

  • Oracle's Sun JumpStart PXE server

    Note - When installing an operating system from the PXE Server, ensure that the selected OS supports the Converged Network Adapter relative to the BIOS or the UEFI environment. Also ensure that the adapter supporting NIC and Fibre Channel drivers is loaded on the PXE Server.
