PXE Boot is determined by DHCP or your PXE boot server?

When a VMware Virtual Machine PXE boots it will also pickup the same information.

Is this what you are asking?

Environment where I work,

We install os on client machines through pxe boot server.

I don't know how its configured. But when we pxe boot on client machine, it brings some options. We select one of the options.it brings os over the network
And installs it on client machine.

I wanted to do same experiment at home for learning.
Any help would be appreciated
Thanks

The easiest way to complete this for home use would be to purchase a copy of Symantec Ghost Suite 2.5, it includes the PXE Server software and Ghost Imaging Solution for you to image and deploy computers via PXE.

No you cannot pull Windows Installer through PXE Boot.

Maybe you need to ask your IT Department how they do it in you Office!

The Preboot eXecution Environment (PXE) is an environment to boot computers using a network interface.

It's got nothing to do with Windows Installer. Windows Installer operates within Windows.

PXE boots a computer from the network.
