Description

The Windows family of operating systems currently doesn't override the available_loaders method, leading to it only supporting boot over PXELinux BIOS.

We're trying to provision such machines with UEFI, which therefore isn't possible.

Mainly creating this issue to have a ID for the pull request :)

Let us know how it went.

#5 Updated by Alexander Olofsson over 4 years ago

The Foreman part does what it should, though our Windows provisioning scripts and networks seem to not yet be good enough to get working machines out the other end.

Can update once we actually get an UEFI provisioned Windows system online and ticking.
