Gantlett Posted November 6, 2009 Share Posted November 6, 2009 HelloI am looking for a solution to install Windows XP and Windows 7 from a PXE server with a boot menu, where I can choose to install one of the OS's. In addition, I want the XP install to NOT be image based, rather it should run from a shared folder on the network. The reason I want XP to be installed from a network share, as opposed to an image, is that I want the XP install to be hardware independent.I tried installing WDS 2008. It plays very nice with Windows 7, but it only supports WIM based installations. Deploying XP through WIM format means deploying a syspreped image which will have some hardware dependency and I want to avoid that at all cost. I also want to avoid booting the target machines from a floppy disk - a PXE menu is the most elegant way I can think of to install an OS.How can I achieve this?Thanks in advance.
