Please refer to section 2.19 of below document for reference.
With regards to the tools for BIOS developers to use to create images for inclusion in a BIOS, it is available in documents 387754 (for
PXE) and 388381 (for iSCSI boot) in Intel Business link.
I would suggest your to visit this website first to contact the Intel Business Link support.
Hope the above helps.
thank you for the response
I have downloaded the tool packages in documents 387754 and 388381. As far as I can tell they both contain a single tool, bootutil.exe, of the same version found in preboot.exe - which does not seem to support i210. Am I missing soemthing? does bootutil support some subset of its functionality for i210?
what about backwards engineering the images? would it be possible to use only lanconf.exe and BE tools such as IDA: About or Binwalk | Firmware Analysis Tool ? or are the images encrypted in some way that prevents this?
Further checking, IPXE is an open source project which we do not support.However here are some suggestion you might want to try:
1) Try use LANCONF to write to the expansion ROM, however in case it does not work, we do not have sources to further support
2) Try use the i210 adapter to boot and chainload IPXE, here is a website for your reference:
