    [SOLVED] PXE Menu order in LDMS 8.8

    Apprentice

      Hi,

       

       

      in LANDesk 8.8 "Managed Linux PE" is the first row in the menu. This makes that option the default choice after timeout (in 8.7 the dafault choice was local boot).

       

       

      How can I change this order?

       

       

      Thanks in advance,

          Hi Jary,

           

           

          you can change the order in the config tool of the PXE server.

           

          1. Start the tool "C:\Program Files\LANDesk\PXE\System\PxeConfig.exe"

          2. Open PXE Servers - <PXE Server name> - proxyDHCP Server - Client Boot Menu - X86PC (UNDI)

          3. Mark in left window the "Managed Linux PE" entry

          4. Right click on this entry and you see "Move Entry Down" or "Move Entry Up"

           

          If you do not want to see this entry, you've to change the Registry entry on your PXE server:

           

           

          set the value of the entry "DisablePredifinedLinuxPE" below HKLM\Software\Intel\PXE\ProxyDHCP\ from 0 to 1.

           

           

          You can do this for all entries which you do not want to see.

           

           

          Regards

            Hi Axel,

             

             

            I tried to change menu configuration using that tool but I can't understand how.

             

             

            The entry you told me to look for doesn't exist like you can see in attached screenshot.

             

             

            By the way I don't understand this LANDesk default value.

             

             

            Best Regards,

              Hello Jary,

               

               

              if the entry does not exist in PXE configuration tool, but appears in PXE menu, you have to disable it with the registry setting (s. post before).

               

               

               

               

               

              Regards

                Hi Axel,

                 

                 

                I've already tried your first solution (disable entry by registry) but I think this settings is changed everytime I redeploy PXE server due to driver injections or LD updates.

                 

                 

                So I must create a custom script that Install MSI, copy images files (like original deployment script) and change registry values.

                 

                 

                I'm going to try it as soon as possible.

                 

                 

                Thank you!

                  Hi Jary,

                   

                  yes, if you redeploy it, all will be overwritten.

                   

                   

                   

                  I don't redeploy it after changes in the image, I copy the .IMG file only

                   

                   

                   

                  Regards

                  Axel

                    Hi Axel,

                     

                     

                    >I don't redeploy it after changes in the image, I copy the .IMG file only

                    Lucky you! I can't do it.

                    You take for granted that you're in LAN and no one is using that file.

                    That's no true for me

                     

                     

                     

                    Thanks,
