Default .iso & pxe

Previously, I asked about how the different third-party software packages that allow multicast imaging/cloning.

All of the demonstrations I've seen have seen, have been somewhat over the top.

My question is: Am I able to use a Windows 10 .iso (done with imgburn), place it in a folder in a Windows Server 2012 O/S, and use PXE to multicast, without WDS or third party software ( ie. Clonezillla, Norton, etc.).

I just want to be able to do this without it getting overly complicated (if it is possible).

Default Re: .iso & pxe

My solution for this was to use tftpd as my tftp server and it serves up a simple GRUB bootloader. It works fine with most ISOs but I haven't been able to get it to load the windows 10 installer yet. It's a little bit involved to setup, though.

this is one of the guides I referenced: 45 - How to PXE boot grub4dos or WinPE (from a Windows 7 PC) using tftpd - RMPrepUSB
