Bang Bang Bang – that’s my head on the table. Why wont my Ubuntu Lucid KVM system PXE boot VM’s
Starting SeaBIOS (version 0.5.1-20100120_010601-rothera)
No bootable device.
Is all I got when using -boot n
Clearly something was wrong – and it was = there were no pxe boot roms in /usr/share/kvm .
It seems the problem sources back to this original ubuntu bug report which details how Ubuntu wouldn’t ship the PXE roms as there is no source for them.
Anyway, I needed to install kvm-pxe from lucid universe and hey presto :
PXE booting now works…. you may all return to your scheduled viewing.
