Which FAI version are you using? Which PXE menu do you mean? By
default, there's no PXE menu in FAI.

By default when doing a CentOS 7 installation with FAI, during the
first boot of the new system, the system will fix some
attributes/permission on the file systems. Maybe this is not working?

Can you please put the fai.log and shell.log of your installation onto If you join the irc channel #fai I can help you much
