    Ok, thank you! ipxe will work for us for now.

    T TylerL started the conversation Secure Boot and EFI over PXE?.

    Hello, we've been using CloneDeploy with great success in our school district since summer. Thanks for this great tool!

    We use USB sticks to initiate CloneDeploy's standard linux block imaging, keeping our devices in UEFI Secure Boot mode.
    We're now attempting to use PXE booting (via Proxy DHCP) to eliminate the need for physical USB sticks, but receive an "ACCESS DENIED" error after the pxeboot.0 file is transferred. Switching devices to legacy mode and using plain old pxelinux will boot just fine, but obviously adds extra steps pre- and post-imaging.
    Moreover, disabling Secure Boot while leaving UEFI on will allow the pxeboot.0 to run, but brings the computer to the GNU GRUB rescue shell, rather than the normal CloneDeploy Grub menu we're accustomed to from the USB sticks.

    I've tried messing with some of the files in /tftpboot and replaced pxeboot.0 with the USB stick's bootx64.efi, which seems to move on beyond the Secure Boot step (but then immediately fails for some other reason). Could it be that pxeboot.0 is not properly signed in the same way like bootx64.efi is? Or other critical files are not loading during the PXE/TFTP steps?

    The CloneDeploy documentation (http://clonedeploy.org/docs/imaging-environments/ ) states that Secure Boot (and therefore EFI) is supported when Proxy Efi64 PXE Mode is set to grub (which ours is).

    I tried searching for any chatter from other users, but haven't found an instance of someone using EFI Grub PXE with Secure Boot either on or off.
    Is there anything I'm missing?
    Thanks for any insight!

    Well, I feel terrible. That lets me in right away.
    Did I miss where that was documented?

    Same problem here. I was really hoping to use this software...
    I followed the steps on the "Install On Ubuntu" page to the letter. (http://clonedeploy.org/docs/install-on-ubuntu/ )
    Navigating to http://ipaddress/clonedeploy after a fresh install leads to the login.aspx page rather than initial setup.
    Going directly to the firstrun.aspx script simply redirects to the login.aspx page.
    Since I never had the chance to enter any credentials, I cannot log in.

    1.1.0 on Ubuntu 16.04
    1.1.1 on Ubuntu 16.04
    1.1.0 on Ubuntu 14.04
    1.0.1 on Ubuntu 14.04

    All respond in exactly the same manner.
    Is there a way to manually set user credentials to bypass this problem?
