[HOWTO] PXE-Boot various systems

  • Did somebody manage to get a windows iso zo pxe boot? I used that a couple of days ago to install a new ssd but I had to use a windows software on my desktop, cause my nas had to install the ssd. The main reason behind that is that many win8 isos are now bigger than a normal dvd can hold and i do not have a reliable usb stick atm with a size higher than 4gb.


    I have to say, pxe booting the win8 iso from windows worked pretty good. ;)

  • I haven't installed Windows with a cd or dvd in a long time because of this.

    But haven't tried it yet, because my Win7 is working and I need it only for some tasks like flashing my NeoX5 ...

  • I have problems when booting. The process works fine until the "nfsmount" hangs complaining that "need a path".


    I set up all like Solo suggested but can't find how to solve that.


    Help will be appreciated.

    dont forget to enable samba share permission or enable guest activated. (i had issues with the command net use, if not enable, cause win wont accept the user and pass)
    net use v: \\192.168.178.250\PXE\images\isos\windows7x64
