I was wondering if Ubuntu Server could be used to have a library of various operating system images (say, Windows 7, 8 & Windows Server 2008/2012 and possibly Ubuntu itself) that could be installed to client machines over the network. Possibly by PXE, CD or USB booting to something that would access the said network/server/library.

I’ve done a little homework into things like TFTP and PXE booting, but I’ve never come across a specific “follow this tutorial” solution that would allow me to use the ubuntu server in my workshop to push operating systems onto machines connected via a switch.


The practical application for this would be having IT firms, depts or MSP’s capable of using KVM & switch stations to do OS reloads in bulk without having to haul slower physical media around from station to station.
