Windows installation + kickstart + pxeboot
 
Hi,

I would like to install windows 7 via pxe boot and automate it for eg.,(kickstart).I googled and found that there is something like WDS which is found only in windows 2008.But i need,the installation server to be in centos 5.6.Later i found that there is way to install windows 7 via pxe,but it have to be done manually.

Apart from this senarios i have another ideas,
1.
a).First take ghost image of a the windows operating system (7 or XP) then,
b).Boot via pxe boot,then load this image to the system.

2.
a).boot pxe--->something like ks.cfg(where it point to windows image)------>then it is like an fresh installation.

I'd like to know whether is this possible.Please suggest ideas.

Thanks in advance,

Well first i think your in the wrong forum for a Windows question...

But look into using Windows AIK. I believe they have an .answer file which is their version of kickstart.
