Networking – Is it possible to boot from an ISO over the network, and how


I have a machine with a bootable ISO stored on it, and I have another blank machine, which I want to install the ISO on. They're both on the same LAN (attached to the same switch). How would I go about booting the blank machine from the ISO stored on my primary computer?

I think you want a means of pxe booting from ISO images. I searched for a little bit and found this article. I believe that method should work for any bootable ISO image you may have. This is another similar article.

Finally, it appears that this article discusses how to do this from a PXE (Pre-boot eXecution Environment) server you run from Windows.
