|title: Home Lab - Bootstrapping|
|author: Kyle Ondy|
|subtitle: Working out the kinks.|
|One of the most common and insidious issues with systems is configuration drift.|
|In a home lab without the controls in place that an enterprise or real business demands this drift happens before you realize.|
|One of the best ways to ensure minimal drift is to minimize the effort needed to rebuild the system in question.|
|Applying your configuration management to a fresh image verifies that you are able to rebuild your environment as needed.|
|Using a combination of [pixiecore](https://github.com/danderson/netboot/tree/master/pixiecore) and [waitron](https://github.com/ns1/waitron) I am able to choose if each board should have its OS reinstalled when it boots into the PXE environment.|
|The RaspberryPi setup was fairly straightforward following [the offical documentation](https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/hardware/raspberrypi/bcm2711_bootloader_config.md).|
|The [ODRIOD-H2](https://www.hardkernel.com/shop/odroid-h2/) _should_ be able to follow the same workflow.|
|However, there seems to be a bug in the H2's BIOS.|
|I've made a post for further clarification on the [official forums](https://forum.odroid.com/viewtopic.php?f=173&t=37071).|
