Install Windows 2012 from ERPXE

Postby Spainer » 23 Oct 2015, 00:28

Hi guys!

I have read the wiki, and I have tried find in the forum if It's possible to install Windows Server editions in clients. Also, Is it true that the instalation load in PXE server's RAM? So... If the ISO is of 4'7 GB Does the server need that RAM?


Thank you

PD: Sorry for my english, I hope I've explained that clearly

Regards

You can use WinPE to load a basic windows environment and run the installation from a network share.
You will need to customize WinPE for it to hold the network drivers for your PCs.

Thanks!

I have a new newbie doubt! Well My fresh install is on Centos 6.6, in a VMWare machine, I have followed the steps in the wiki. My doubt is the DHCP configuration, Should I setup DHCP server in my ERPXE server? Or my DHCP server in my "Lan" because I haven't DHCP Server, my all infrascturure has static IP. I think something I am not understanding...

Thank you for your time

You need to setup any DHCP server so that the clients will get PXE configuration.
if you don't have any DHCP server then setup one on your ERPXE machine, its the easiest solution.

Hello

I hadn't time, well I setup DHCP in my PXE Server, and now with other machine in same range (DHCP gives it IP) but It show the next errors

PXE-E11 arp timeout
PXE-E11 arp timeout
PXE-E38 tftp cannot open connection

I have seen the topic but it hasn't resolved it.

Thank you.
