Environment

ZENworks 2020 Update 2

Situation

With PXE boot, the Dell OptiPlex 7090 goes blank after "Starting udev..." line.

Cause

Some models of system with the imaging require the "nomodeset" parameter with the linux imaging being used.

Resolution

1. Back up the /srv/tftp/efi/x86_64/z_maint.conf file.

2. Add the "nomodeset" parameter after "mode=5" on the line startnig with "linuxefi" in the /srv/tftp/efi/x86_64/z_maint.conf file

Example:
linuxefi efi/x86_64/linux install=tftp://$PXESERVER/efi mode=5 nomodeset splash=silent showopts vga=0x0314
initrdefi /efi/x86_64/initrd
boot
