How to fix "Unsuccessful EFI network boot" on Vmware Workstation 12?
02/24/2017 33647 views
I am trying to create our UEFI golden images on VMWare Workstation 12 Pro for deployments. I configured the VM to EFI boot and network boot as first option but when trying to network boot it says it was unsuccessful. Does anyone know of any troubleshooting steps or steps I have missed to configure this to work? My setup is:
VMWare Workstation 12 Pro
2 GB RAM
60 GB HDD
EFI boot selected

Booting VMWare Workstation to the KBE is usually best completed by creating a special UEFI boot ISO for the VM system that you can point to on the CD drive.
The special KBE can be created by using KBE Manipulator and go to the options section to enable the (UEFI Iso) box. Then create the KBE and have it upload to the KACE Deployment appliance, once done download the ISO file and on the VM have it point to the ISO file (may have to add it to the datastore).
Use the power on to Firmware to boot to the UEFI (BIOS) and select the CD to boot.
