    What if you try a physical client instead of VMWare?
    I've never seen it do that before...

    I think it would do this if the pxelinux configuration file is missing all of the boot menu options. You could try re-writing this by modifying something in the user interface (like the menu timeout) and then save the changes. This should be somewhere like /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default I don't run it anymore so I can't check anywhere. If the options are all in here but not getting to the client then it could be a file system permissions issue that stops the config file being sent to the client. As you have VMWare it might be worth just setting up a second Fog server from scratch and point to that to TFTP boot, just to see what happens with the boot menu.

    Yeah Ive got a second VM building as we speak, dont want to spend hours on something when it might be quicker to just rebuild from scratch

    Ill take a look at the PXE menu tho, thanks for the suggestions....just strange how everything was working fine and now its broken!

    Damn, wish I could remember the other settings location. It may be /opt/fog/.fogsettings

    I believe the reason it won't work is it's now looking at two locations for DHCP, across two files. It's not unified, and it is quite annoying!
