Description Landon LaSmith 2017-02-02 20:57:12 UTC
Description of problem: During a QCI deployment (Satellite provisioning) the pxelinux config will use "localboot 0" to boot the hard disk.  Our Lenovo RD 350 machines will fail to boot from the hard disk using this config and restart.  If I replace the option for 

"LOCALBOOT 0" ==> COM32 chain.c32
              ==> APPEND hd0

Then the machine will boot from the local disk as expected. Manually booting from the primary disk works as expected. I also use an HP DL60 machine during this process and it will boot the local disk with no problems

Syslinux Version: syslinux-4.05-13.el7.x86_64
Lenovo RD350 Bios Version: VB3TS381 (V3.81.0)

How reproducible: 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install QCI from ISO
2. Provision a Lenovo RD350 OR create pxelinux config with "LOCALBOOT 0" 
3. Pxe boot

Actual results: Lenovo machine reboots after pxeboot tells it to boot from the local disk.

Expected results: "LOCALBOOT 0" causes the Lenovo RD350 machine to boot from primary drive
