Description Lucas Alvares Gomes 2016-01-04 11:48:55 EST
Description of problem:
The goto :boot_whole_disk section in the iPXE template is bogus, the "kernel" command is being used to chain the "chain.c32" file, that command should be "chain" and the "append" command is not a valid iPXE command.

In iPXE we should use the sanboot command [0] for chainloading to the local disk.

[0] http://ipxe.org/cmd/sanboot

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Deploy a whole disk image without local boot
2. iPXE will fail to chainload it to the local disk

Actual results:

The user image will fail to boot

Expected results:

The user image booting correctly
