Hello,

I was using that guide to PXE boot a lot of computer with my old V5 Unraid Server.

Now I have build a brand new V6 Unraid Server. Is it still possible to use that guide ? I don't want to mess with my new server directly.

Thanks !

Note : Perhaps there is a simpliest way to do that with docker but I'm just starting to read how that stuff works.

I guess the guide should work if you can find a 64bit version of dnsmasq on http://packages.slackware.com

Hello galak6

Any news about moving PXE into the Docker container?

The original poster is no longer active on the Unraid forums.

You could try the tftp-server docker from Sparklyballs.  No idea if it works as his repo is more or less abandoned in favour of the linux server's containers

The original author hasn't been active on the forums for quite some time.  So an updated guide from him or him reuploading stuff is very unlikely.

I don't really care who reuploads the files.  People who did this in the past could have kept and/or still have the original file. One of those people could upload it.

They could, just pointing out it might not happen.  The thread hasn't exactly been a hot bed of activity.
