Hello all! I’m hoping someone can help. I’m having 2 issues; first:
When trying to load a CentOS LiveCD via PXE on an Intel NUC (NUC6CAY), I
“Not enough memory to load specified image”. The image is 1.1 gigs, and there is 16 gigs of memory in the NUC.
To combat this, I found this forum post
which suggested using the “mem=” kernel parameter to manually set it.
The next problem I get is one of two things:
On a normal working system, I get the dots loading in PXE, then it freezes on “ready.” forever On the NUC, I get a sqaushfs crash saying that the image is unusable.
My questions are:
Has anyone successfully used the “mem=” parameter in a PXE environment?
I wasn’t even aware that drivers were necessary for a kernel image to read RAM; I’d thought this was something that was just inherent. Does the CentOS PXE kernel need to be updated?
