i just recently purchased a couple of V90 XPe systems, however, they have some kind of 3rd party login application(saflink). So I thought no problem, get a linux rescue CD on a USB drive. OK, so the USB drive boots up on my laptop no problem, but it won’t boot up on the V90 unless I remove the internal flash device (or disable the IDE controller through the BIOS), so removing the password from the XP installation is not going to be easy.
So I thought I would try the PXE upgrade. I set up my laptop with a TFTP server, an FTP server and the Wyse WSI software.
It appeared to start the PXE boot successfully but then encountered an error, about being unable to open a specific file some small .i2c file (can’t remember off the top of my head which file but that was as far as it got through the upgrade process.
Also, I can’t find the information the PXE (user name and password) boot uses to access the FTP server, so I am unable to create a user account for it.
Does anyone have any ideas on what the problem could be?
