I try to boot ISO Images like Acronis or HirenBoot CD or Linux etc via a Windows Server 2003 R2
Is this generally possible
I Use following winnt.sif in my templates folder on the RIS Server:
[SetupData]
BootDevice = "ramdisk(0)"
BootPath = "\i386\System32\"
OsLoadOptions = "/noguiboot /fastdetect /rdexportascd /rdpath=%INSTALLPATH%\Acronis.ISO"
[RemoteInstall]
Repartition = No
[OSChooser]
Description = "TEST Acronis"
Help = "TEST Linux"
LaunchFile = "%INSTALLPATH%\%MACHINETYPE%\templates\startrom.com"
ImageType = Flat
Version = "5.2 (0)"

The Image is fully loaded but then I get an error Error in txtsetup.sif Error Code 18

So I don`t know if this is generally possible to boot an standard ISO with Windows RIS

Thanks in advance

Sorry but this doesn`t answer my question.

Is it possible to boot standard ISO Images from for example acronis True Image with RIS.
I don`t have WinPE

Sorry No,

I want to boot ISO Images through PXE with Microsoft RIS Server.
So that I be able to start an Image Software or Antivirus or Linux PasswordHack directly from the Network.

I am able to start FDD Images through tools menu with RIS. I use EMBoot for that. But this is limited to FDD Images and 16MB.
