PXE boot error: Memory Allocation system halted
i read a number of threads
i read a number of threads relating to this, and even followed the steps on KB35816 but it still wouldnt work..
also, moving our deplyment server to linux isnt something we can afford at the moment.. but thanks for replying to my question anyway, i thought i might not get any answer here because of how old altiris is!!
However, i did find the problem, as it was concernign an unidentified network card, and in the end, there is an update on the intel website itself.
So, for anyone else that has come here searching why altiris will not play ball with their new 8200elite pcs, the answer is that intel recomends downloading the GENERIC driver for Intel® 82579 Gigabit Ethernet Controller (which includes Support for Intel® 82579LM and 82579V Gigabit Network Connection).
If you search for that on the intel website, it takes you to the DOS driver, with the latest version (march 2012).
This driver has a new version of 'e1000odi.com’ which is the file that PXE was saying it could not load.
Combine this driver with the instructions on KB35816 and then it should (fingers crossed) work with no issues. I know that, for me, i am now seting up computers with this.
Good luck everyone :D
