Re: Will ReactOS be network bootable?

I imagine that it's do-able, depending on what exactly you're looking for. Things like WDS (Windows Deployment) / RIS are likely not functional, but with different PXE servers out there, there are some features that would likely work.

I'm thinking PXE servers that allow you to boot off of .iso images would certainly work, as well as those that use virtual disk (.vdi, .vmdk) images. I see that Virtualbox fully supports PXE, so I may just give it a shot here when I get the chance to spin up a PXE server.

Now, for hosting a PXE server, I would think that that's not going to work (yet)...

Someone needs to fix the ramdisk driver first.

:idea: Could be an interesting option for people testing on real hardware. No more CD-R(W) or USB key juggling. (Once it works, obviously.)
