I have a Windows server 2003 R2 machine without any disk. It will be an embedded system so I want to boot from a NAS disk. My problem is of 2 steps: 1) How to Install ? 2) how to boot  when ready ?
1) I could attach an SATA disk during installation and then in someway copy the files (image) to NAS. I don't know how to make the image ? Please suggest.

2) My NAS disk is Linux based so I have to learn how to set up the pxe config on linux. I don't know wich file to point to,  NTLDR ? Please give example config.

I have seen some forums recommending iSCSI, but I don't know if and how this could be done. need HW / SW ?
