Running dell diagnostics over PXE

cp -p /usr/lib/syslinux/pxelinux.0 /tftpboot
cp -p /usr/lib/syslinux/menu.c32 /tftpboot
cp -p /usr/lib/syslinux/memdisk /tftpboot/boot

add the following to dhcp, if it is a new tftp

allow booting;
allow bootp;
filename "/tftpboot/pxelinux.0";

Create a harddisk dell diagnostics image by running the *.BIN file that can be had from here

This creates diags.img, copy that to /tftpboot/boot/diags.img

cat /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default

MENU LABEL Dell Diagnostics
kernel boot/memdisk
append initrd=boot/diags.img
