Implementing PXE Boot Using Intel BLDK for Intel Atom Processor Based Boards
Intel provides an EFI-standard based Boot Loader Development Kit (BLDK) for various Intel Atom processors. This paper discusses how to modify the Intel BLDK code base to support network booting (PXE boot). The resulting BLDK image is programmed onto an Intel Atom Processor E6xx series with Intel platform controller hub EG20T evaluation board code named crown bay. The process involves installing the BLDK Integrated Development Environment (IDE) on a computer running Microsoft Windows 7 to create the modified BLDK image. It also involves setting up a host computer from which the target unit remotely boots. The target unit boots into a MeeGo image installed on the host computer running Fedora 16 as the server OS.
