Re: Bug#695500: debian-installer-7.0-netboot-kfreebsd-amd64: does not boot from pxe

I see now that the "prefix is not set" message appears very quickly,
before GRUB switches into graphical mode.  It seems harmless, because at
the GRUB command line the prefix is correctly set.

My guess is that the machine booting via PXE was unable to show the GRUB
menu properly.  For example, if some kind of console redirection was
being used.

This can be worked around by simply removing this file from the TFTP server:


And GRUB should fall back to text mode.
