Creating an image for booting from the PXE server

You can create a WinPE 2.0 or later image file for booting from the PXE server during provisioning from a local data store.

To create the image for a PXE boot

In provisioning from a local data store, installation files are located on local media. Usually, a local boot image is used. However, you can create a WinPE 2.0 or later image file for booting the target machine from the PXE server (PXE boot) instead of a local boot. To create the image, do either of the following:

  1. To create the boot image file using the Image Creation wizard, follow the steps Creating WinPE images using the Image Creation wizard. Specify settings as you normally would to create a WinPE image. In addition, specify the following settings:
    • On the Toolkit Select panel, for Image type, select PXE Image.
    • On the Configuration Details panel, select Copy to WinPE image.
  2. To create the boot image file using the BMC Server Automation script, follow the steps in Creating WinPE image files using the BMC Server Automation script.
    In the input file for the script:
    • Specify all required parameters and other parameters as you normally would to create a WinPE image.
    • Specify this parameter: CopyToISO=N
    • Specify this parameter: CreatePXEFlag=Y
