NetBoot server - hard disk installation


Hello,
I have netboot server which serves to 30 diskless machines.
Now I want to install the image from that server to hard disk of a client PC - when the machine boots with the image to install this on it and no more to need to boot with the server, but to get standalone full functional PC running the software from the netboot image.

Hello,

To make sure I understand, you have a Netboot server with a Linux image on it. You want to transfer that image to a desktop so that it has full functionality without having to rely on the server. Is that correct?

If so, what have you tried so far or are you just looking for instruction?

Thanks!

I didn't succeed to find any tutorials on this. All articles are called PXE installation, but no one installs, they use image from the server. I want to run from the server, and to transfer the image on the hard disk, this will save me a lot of time for installation.
