kennedto Posted December 4, 2006 Share Posted December 4, 2006 For all you Linux user, here is what I came up with for Vista install from Linux. I did this on Redhat 4.0.Steps1) On a Windows machine, install the WAIK. I used a Vista box, but I think W2K3 or XP might work.2) From the attached winpepxe.tar, copy the bld directory to c:\3) Follow the instructions in c:\bld\README.txt. This will allow you to build the boot kernels for x86 and amd64 for the tftp directory.4) Copy kernel to linux server net use f: \\SERVER_IP\SHARE copy_krnl_to_server.cmd x86 copy_krnl_to_server.cm amd64 Put these under you tftpd directory under pxe/winpe5) Update your tftp-server to version 0.40 atleast. This fixes a bug tftp remapping,6) copy the following to /etc/tftpremapp# TFTPD remapping reuired to support Vistare bootmgr\.exe pxe/pxelinux.cfg/\x/bootmgr.exerg \\boot\\ pxe/pxelinux.cfg/\x/rg \\Boot\\ pxe/pxelinux.cfg/\x/rg ^\\ pxe/pxelinux.cfg/\x/rg \\ /The \x represents the HEX IP value for the client. Create a link to the proper architecture for the client.for example for x64 architecturecd $TFTPROOT/pxe/pxelinux.cfgln -s ../winpe/x64 $HEX_IPYou may need to adjust the paths for your environment. 7) Add the following to the tftpd option in /etc/xinetd.d/tftp -remap /etc/tftpremap8) Set the next file similar to the followingfilename="pxe/winpe/_ARCH_/pxeboot.n12";9) When an install starts, the pxeboot.n12 will be downloaded and will ask for more files.10) This will eventually will execute WinPE.wim, wich runs the startnet.cmd 11) Startnet.cmd runs create_net.vbs which does a Wscript.Echo("net use y: \\" + myDHCP + "\answers\" + myIP) where myDHCP is taken from the ipconfig /all command answer is my share myIP is the IP of the client. 12) startnet.cmd will cd to y:\clientIP directory and run os_install.cmd wich is attached. You will need to modify it for your environment. Not this whole schemes works with W2K3x64 and wXP64, so some of the items in os_install.cmd are not needed.13) os_install.cmd eventually runs the Vista setup.exeI have included an asnwer file for your convenience. Use M4 to instantiate it.Good luck.Tomwinpepxe.tarpart.txtos_install.cmdwvista.xml Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
