Hello everyone.

I need help in setting up a configuration.  My English is a little low, but I will try to be as clear as possible.
This configuration this will only be for testing only, but if everything will work fine, I will implement it to my infrastructure.
I have a server 2008R2.  I want users, when they boot their computer (from network), they will automatically boot to their own remote desktop, or to server.  On computers, no OS will be installed.  Is that possible?  Has anyone done anything like this?

do you mean as thin client, this required a special HW, that works with V-machines.
this required a complete server to client skelaton

there is a piece of software called virtual pc that will allow you to do this. Very sophistcated but easy to implement. The same software allows you also to have multiple operating systems each running at the same time on one pc for teting purposes

virtual pc is for workstations.  I have a couple of test Servers 2008R2 on Hyper-V (SRV_TEST1 and SRV_TEST2).  I have a terminal server role up on TEST1.  How do I link a workstation on boot up to server TEST1?

nsonbaty, thanx for the links.  Got that figured out.

Now what about the server.  How do I configure my server so my that my thin clients boot to their own terminal server.  The configuration I have in mind, is managers connect to a terminal server, call it TEST1.  Marketing department connects to a different terminal server TEST2.  I think this will involve MAC filtering, DHCP, Terminal server role.... what else?  ....and my main question is how do I configure my servers to make the above possible?   (Thin Client w/o OS, network boot!)

No, in this type of configuration, it is a group clients, Ie. marketing group ( will have some special configuration and applications ) , and other groups with diffrent applications and configuration. and it is managed by the server managment tools
how, it is diffrent from managment tool to another.
some, like HP are using the App. V with web client on the thin client at startup, or
other, like working with complete Virtual client and servers structures
