Topic: Pre-download squashfs with iPXE.


I use iPXE to load gparted-live from network.

initrd initrd.img
chain vmlinuz boot=live .... fecth=http://server/filesystem.squashfs

I would like to pre-download filesystem.squashfs with iPXE and pass it to gparted-live somehow:

inirtd initrd.img
initrd filesystem.squashfs
chain vmlinuz boot=live ....

How this can be accomplised?

Also, which options do I have to pass to vmlinuz in order for Num Lock be on? When gparted-live boots, it is switched off.

Thank you.
