I'm trying to figure out how to boot some tools over the network. I've found that I can use RIS/WDS to boot Windows installations over the network, and can also use PE's with RIS/WDS. But I need to boot ISOs. I have many of my tools including HDD/Memory diagnostics, cloning utilities, and so on in ISO format. The problem is employees constantly leave discs/flashdrives in customer machines (it's a repair workshop), and I'm also concerned about some low-level employee snagging a tools disc with proprietary software and quiting.
I need a way to boot an ISO file over the network to avoid this. The two prime examples are Seagate Seatools and Hiren's Boot Disc. I can't figure out how to do this! And MiniXP environments (which WILL work with RIS/WDS) don't let me use boot-level tools like Seatools, just Windows-based tools. GRRR.
If anyone has any insight, PLEASE HELP!
