well, i can boot it from the grub cli, but i have to pass the correct parameters to it, or just tell it where the configfile is. but the changes don't survive a reboot.
savedefault isn't working
well, this pxe image works fine on all of our other servers, it's just this latest batch is bad
well, here's the deal, the image we make, works, it boots on the install machine, then we iso it up, and use pxe to put that image on the other machines. the other machines install fine, except for what looks like grub. everything but grub gets installed right
after the machine get's the pxe image, uncompresses it and installs itself, it reboots, that's where we get the grub console
and i have to pass configfile to it. which is odd, because it knows already what the root (/boot) is, and can load the grub.conf file from it
these are fresh machines
i had to run 'grub-install /dev/sda' to get it to boot without going through the grub console.
manually entering commands kind of defeats the purpose of pxe boot loading
