Mondorescue with a p class blade cabinet

Good afternoon fellow admins;

Wondering if anyone has used mondorescue with a p class blade cabinet. I have used mindi to create the iso file which I have on a dvd, can see all the directories, files and mindi images. With our p class cabinet we have no direct attached dvd drives. During a reboot with the cd from my laptop mounted as a virtual disk it does see the dvd but cannot figure out how to get the mindi/mondorescue boot process to see the images that are on the same dvd.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You could try bootin from the network with PXE.

Please see:

Hello Ivan;

Thanks for the response, read your link and to be honest not understanding what it is telling me to do, is the default file grub? If pxe rom does not find a boot loader then will it boot mondo? How do I configure the linux boot up process to boot via NFS? Have you done this before?

If you can shoot me back a response that would be great.

Thanks alot
