    I wish to boot True Image over network. I tried it with BpBatch, TFTPD32 and the kernel.dat and ramdisk.dat, but when the kernel is booting it gives me a panic error that it can't mount the root FS. I'm a Windows user so I'm not very familiar with Linux.

    Did anyone got True Image to boot over PXE properly?

    thanks

    You have to pass the linux kernel these options:
    ramdisk_size=16000 vga=791

    Big thanks! I had to pass the option "root=/dev/ram0" and now it the kernel is booting. But I have to start True Image manually in console by entering "product".
    Do you now why it is not starting automatically? On CD-ROM it certainly does.

    Try passing the parameter "quiet" to the kernel
