Boot from CD to MaaS


A kind of weird question but I was wondering if it could have been possible to built a boot CD that would allow to override PXE boot inability in some environments. Probably boot a mini image, setup networking and then contact MaaS to do all the fancy staff.


If your environment doesn’t support PXE boot you could try iPXE on a CD. If iPXE supports your network card you’ll be able to use the normal MAAS images as iPXE will chainload LPXELinux.
