PXE boot - Installation of Mint + Others.

Postby Hjess on Wed Dec 23, 2009 8:50 am


Anyone successfully installed a complete Mint from a PXE server?

Maybe got a howto for doing so, and if I'm lucky a HOWTO pxe a windows installer?

Look for the app PXELINUX and the syslinux project in general

If you need a way to PXE boot Linux Mint, take a look at http://sf.net/projects/oneclickkick.

A short summary:
A web based GUI for managing clients for PXE boot clients with support of Kickstart scripts. Client install in one click. This is a generic framework created to work with any PXE bootable image.

This now includes Linux Mint for LIVE boot via NFS. :) I'm working on making an kickstart/preseed installation of Linux Mint as well.
