Hi guys,


I'm guessing no, but can an xserve / Mac OS X server machine netboot windows machines? even if you can setup a suitable images for certain hardware types

cheers

Natively: I don't know.

Via parallels: Probably, and xserves running parallels are becoming quite a viable server option.

netboot windows machines?


Netboot what operating system on the Windows machines as you seem to call them. if you had a bootp service on your xserve, you could certainly setup suitable folders to netboot linux onto suitable pc.

But setting up the stuff to netboot windows onto a Windows machine would be tricky, not to mention would be limited on certain versions of Windows.
