Hi,

Since there are a lot of situations where TFTPD32 can be used to boot from LAN, I tought it would be a good idea to start here a small list of links pointing to quick guides showing how to use PXE and TFTPD32.

Some links might have grown outdated, if you know better pages - please post them on this topic too.. (IMG:http://www.boot-land.net/forums/../forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

I looked at a lot of these guides to set up my TFTP server for the first time, but I didn't find any of them to be 100% complete. Sure there were useful things in each one, but I did not feel any of them to be a sit down, here's all the steps to do it walkthrough. So I made one.

This guide will hopefully show anyone how to take a blank XP box, and end up with a fully functioning TFTPD32 based server. I did extend it a little bit to include how to slipstream a lot of XP drivers into the install, as well as sample files to make it fully unattended. This is the exact method I used to create a server that rolls out completely unattended installs, including drivers, and with use of the $OEM$ folder, automate complete applications and registry tweaks. With enough time, you can customize it to have a one or two keystroke complete isntall, without using ghost.

This is the first guide I've ever written. Any input would be nice.

Kloudfreak,

Great guide you have written (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

It also works on a W2003 server. I have modified your guide a bit to include the possibility to make the TFTPD32 and BINL servers running as windows services, eliminating the need to start them yourself and also running them silent.

You can also use the TFTP server from Bootix if you already have a DHCP server running on the same system:

Good tutorials.
I'd like to integrate all driverpacks with tftpd32 unattended install. Is it possible?
Perhaps it's possible use Autoimage to integrate Driverpacks?

Yes it is possible, look over at http://forum.driverpacks.net/viewtopic.php?pid=15764 for the current discussion about it.

I know I tried using Srvany to run them as a service, but I ran into issues with it. I dont recall at this time what the exact issues were, but I do know it had something to do with trying to relaunch the service and failing, or it had issues responding to TFTP. I was doing the greatest part of this remotely (RDP), and I believe the issue arose when restarting the server, logging in remotely, then logging in on the machine. I'll have to retest it to figure out the exact issue, but I could not get it to work 100% of the time. At some point it would time out, causing me to have to kill the service and then restart it. I ended up just dropping it into the startup folder and using AutoAdminLogon in the registry.

--Side note. Thank you for the feedback as well as the updates to it (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

No problem (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)


I got it working also with RyanVM's update pack and complete driversupport from driverpacks.net. What I exactly did is described here:

If anyone else can try that out as well as give some feeback? (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
