Hello, list,

   I'm buiding syslinux6.3 with ESXI6.7, but it says,

  * failed to load COM32 File*

Here is my config:


label esxi
  menu label ESXI-6.7 ^Installer
  append -c

Seeing from http access log, mboot.c32 was loading successfully. - - [12/Mar/2019:17:59:15 +0800] "GET
/images/esxi67/mboot.c32 HTTP/1.0" 200 90088 "-" "Syslinux/6.03"


I read from Common problems of docs, and rename mboot.c32 to mboot
accordingly, it raises the same error.

But the way, where is the correct way of booting from local drive?

* localboot 0X80 * or -1 does not work.
