I’m trying to deploy some non-linux OS via pxe and I was thinking to just launch CentOS in RAM and then run dd or qemu-img or something like this in order to complete the other OS install via template imaging. My first idea was to build a custom CentOS livecd and use that in combination with pxe kernel parameters, but perhaps there’s a better way to do this. Ideas?

Thanks, Lucian

  • I would use the regular kickstart %pre parts if the tools you need are already there or could be imported. If you can pxe, what about trying warewulf diskless boot to achieve what you need ( I have played with c6 + clamav + ntfs3g to clean-up a friend win7 laptop). xcat can also be a choice, although I haven’t tried.
