I would like to boot a PC from the network (e.g., PXE), then let the PC clone its hard disk from an image located on a server, then boot from the hard disk.
Is it possible?
FAI (fully automatic install) seems not to support cloning an entire image.
Another solution I found would be to use dd and netcat for cloning over the network. However, I would have to somehow first boot a minimalistic system that has dd and netcat available, then clone, then re-boot from hard disk. Is this possible? Is there a simpler solution?
