CCBoot alternative for LAN cafe?


I am in the process of trying to start a LAN cafe that is going to be centered around gaming. I want to try diskless booting, however all windows services are monthly subscriptions of course. The first option that is paid is using windows server 2012 and CCboot, but that costs $5 per pc. Is there a linux solution that would accomplish the same thing as CCboot? I would need the server to be linux, and boot Windows OS to the clients.

Won't you still have to buy a lot of Windows licences (assuming you want to run that OS)?
That will cost a lot more than $5.

The purpose isnt to bybass the need for a bunch of copies of windows OS. the point is to bypass the need for a monthly program that is used to manage the OS that would be sent over Via the network.
