Deploying Linux using Windows Server 2012


I realize that this forum is for Linux users. I am trying to find out how to deploy Linux to clients using Windows server. I know it can be done and it has been done. I would like to perform a demonstration of how to do this. A lot of people in the business community don't realize the benefits of Linux. I want to show them that it is a viable business solution, and can be incorporated into their current environment

You can set up a network share for Linux distributions that support network boots.

You can PXE boot as well, which is probably the best choice for mass deployment. All you would need in addition to the PXE boot server is a ftp or http mirror of the operating system you choose. Some distributions, like Slackware Linux, provide the whole distribution on live bootable DVDs with the ability to work as a PXE boot server.

I realize that Slackware may not be your first choice. I am using it as an example of what can be done. Here is some on documentation PXE booting with Slackware.
