    Default PXE Boot Problme with OpenSuSE 11.4

    Hello Everyone,

    I have a really funny problem in installing OpenSuSE 11.4 (64 Bit) over PXE.

    If I do try to start a PXE Installation, the PXE Bootsystem loads the kernel, and
    I guess it trys to start to load the initrd, but then it froze, i need to reset the computer.
    On the TFTP Server (aftp) I see that it trys to resend the initrd files and runs into a time out.

    Ive the problem on 2 maschines, both with the same Motherboard (ASUS M4N78).

    And the PXEinstallation of OpenSuSE 11.3 works fine, without any problems.

    Anyone here an idea ?

    I think it's your network card... For some reason PXE or TFTP or something does not like Realtek. I had the same problem where it got an address from DHCP and then got stuck on trying to get initrd. I then changed to an Intel network card and it instantly worked... I was installing 32Bit, but I think it could be the same thing...
