Situation: I have an old rack server that I want to use as a test machine. The BIOS does not support network boot, and cannot be upgraded. I need to install a fresh OS on it.
Is there anything I can install (or better, a live CD I can boot from), that would enable me to perform a once-only PXE-boot to load one of our standard OS images on the server?
Note: This question does NOT ask how to set up a PXE-boot server. That's already done, and works fine for any machine whose BIOS supports boot from network. All I'm looking for is a way of achieving the same thing without requiring BIOS support.
