PXE boot, TFTPD
Hi folks! So sometimes you’ll find yourself in a situation where you want to image a lot of computers. Generally using a computer’s PXE boot feature is a good idea in this case. But how do you set this up?
Well using a combination of imaging software and tftp and dhcp you can make this happen. Now imaging software i’ll leave up to you, but you can use something called TFTPD which includes both a TFTP server to send the PXE image to your computer for boot, and also a DHCP server built into it to provide the necessary IP addresses along with the appropriate scope options.
TFTPD is free to use and can be downloaded here. Try it out, it works great!
