    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?

    Thanks

    Is it a V90 or V90L or V90LE?
    Which image are you trying?
    Which WSI version?

    It is a V90

    Win XPe V5.02 B627

    Using WSI version 1.3.6 direct from the Wyse website

    I am using tftpd32 for tftp and Filezilla for my FTP server.

    Use a plain Windows Server OS, best 2003.
    Install IIS (not Filezilla) and configure it as stated in the Quick Start Guide of WSI. TFTP is installed by WSI setup itself and has NOT to be preinstalled.
