|Any method to do a "PXE" booting for my Mac?|
|Yes, although there is no BIOS for Mac machine, there is still a workaround you can "PXE boot" (not uEFI network boot) your Mac machine. Here you are:|
- First you have to make sure your PXE server is ready.
- Download Clonezilla live iso.
//NOTE// This has to be the iso file, not zip file. For example, the downloaded file is "clonezilla-live-2.2.4-15-amd64.iso".
- Put the iso file on a USB flas drive using this command:
dd if=clonezilla-live-2.2.4-15-amd64.iso of=/dev/sdc
Here we assume your USB flash drive is /dev/sdc. You should change to appropriate name if it's different.
//NOTE 1// Do not use Tuxboot to create the bootable USB flash drive. We have to simulate the USB flash drive as CD on the Mac.
//NOTE 2// You could also burn the iso file on a CD to boot your Mac if your Mac machine has a CD drive.
- Put the USB flash drive on your Mac machine, then boot your Mac with "Option key" (Alt key if you use a PC keyboard) pressed.
- You should be able to see the boot menu of Mac, choose the "Windows" one.
- Now you should be able to see the boot menu of Clonezilla live.
- Choose "Network boot via iPXE", and if your network device is supported by iPXE, you should be able to PXE boot it now.
