Question about ASUS Terminator A7SC (TERMINATOR K7DDRWMDM) PC Desktop
Friends, I am in Chimoio, Mocambique, on a v e r y s l o w internet connection working for a NGO as a volunteer. I am building a thin client solution in Edubuntu Linux and need to boot over the network using computers with ASUS A7SC with SiS900 PCI Fast Ethernet to get to the server. Bios provides the option called Int18 which I thought means the ability to boot over the network. I get the message "boot disk failure - insert system disk". With the hard drive connected this computer works just fine and I am actually sing it to write this message. This works great from my Compaq Armada M700 using the F12 option. Should be no network configuration problem etc. everything is in the same classroom. I would appreciate help with this - it is a very cheap solution for these dirtpoor schools I am working with. Best regards RolfJ
(from my bad memory) : check BIOS, there is a option in the PCI sub-menu for the network card. You have to enable a "bios rom" option somewhere (and not only the "int18" option).

If your target PC for installation cannot network boot On any machine: * Build an Etherboot boot floppy. kanga (the installation target) has an 3Com 3c905 NIC * Download and unpack Etherboot (etherboot-5.3.9.tar.bz2 from [WWW] SourceForge in my case). * Documentation from the [WWW] Etherboot documentation page. * Make the boot floppy (insert disk into drive :). http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=4233&package_id=4250 http://etherboot.sourceforge.net/doc/html/documentation.html https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/Netboot
