Failed to load COM32 file mboot.c32?

Jump to solution

Hello folks,

I am creating a PXE unattended installation method for vSphere 5.5 using syslinux 5.01 (and 6.03).

I've copied over the following files to my c:\pxeboot directory.

- mboot.c32

- pxelinux.0

- libutil.c32

- ldlinux.c32

I also created a default configuration file in c:\pxeboot\pxelinx.cfg directory.

It PXE boots and menu is displayed but show error message: Failed to load COM32 file mboot.c32.


Anyone have suggestions to resolve this?

I resolved this by using SYSLINUX 3.86 and only copying the pxelinux.0 from it.

More details in my blog write up.

No response yet.  Will close, start over, and try again if nothing heard over the weekend.
