Install really necessary?
Hi There,

As with the newest version of Windows 8.1 there was a feature added to dism (i think) were you can boot windows from a wim file located on your harddrive. I know with winpe it is already possible to boot windows over http but can it work with a persistent installation or windows to go as well?

mounting somehow a http path as harddisk and booting windows from the web? Making sure changes get uploaded via http(s) as well?

Please leave your ideas Smile

Regards,
J

If you're looking for persistent. wimboot won't work for you. You're going to need to go to AoE (ATA over ethernet). Instructions for how this can be accomplished can be found here:

jrsmile: Your question is not really related to network-booting, as iPXE has no real support for reading local storage. You might find some answers over on the forums at http://reboot.pro/.
