Actually both. However, this thread implied that the mfsBSD/ramdisk techniques
did not work, and I wanted to provide a datapoint to the contrary.

We have one installation which gets the ISO image over FTP and boots from that,
but it's probably not grabbing two separate images using loader.efi like you
also suggest.

Perhaps it works. I've been maintaining a DVD build longer than that Live DVD
has existed, so I have a set methodology to boot from a DVD. Hence I have never
really tried the Live DVD as a long term solution to booting servers
which are relatively immune to rootkits.

Possession of a system of knowledge, or an interest in it,

license or capacity to operate it. Individual criticisms of
a system, incapacity to operate it, or dissatisfaction with
it should not be confused with any shortcoming of the system
