installing Windows over the network (PXE)

Postby alpha754293 » Mon May 11, 2009 10:25 am

Does anybody know how to configure Solaris such that I would be able to install Windows XP Pro via PXE?

I've seen a bunch of guides available that uses Sysangel and like a mini-Linux for tftp, DHCP server, and DNS (I think).

I know that I've done a PXE install of Solaris from another Solaris system before; so I was wondering if there's an easier way, or do I just have to bite the bullet and follow those guides verbatim?

(Note: this is only going to be for a single deployment, so I don't think that I'm going to need RIS).

Or would it just be easier for me to attach an optical drive to the target system?

Solaris is not supported by FAH so you're probably not going to find useful answers here. Why don't you try a Solaris forum?

Since this is dangerously close to asking how to violate the Windows licensing agreement, I'm going to lock this thread.
