comment PXE boot a VMware guest by specifying the IP configuration in the guest's boot options. No DHCP available
I upvoted, seems exactly what the OP wanted as it provides a virtual ROM that can have a script attached.

comment PXE boot a VMware guest by specifying the IP configuration in the guest's boot options. No DHCP available
Pxe is DHCP. That was the intent when the doc was written and I am extremely familiar with some of the team that started on this in 98, that wrote it. Stop trying to changes the fact that DHCP is specifically and intentionally mentioned in the document as to the protocol used by and required for PXE.

comment PXE boot a VMware guest by specifying the IP configuration in the guest's boot options. No DHCP available
The specs were written by Intel with input from system works, the standards (which I linked to in my answer) are on an Intel server. Is there some other standard you refer to?

Read the standards? I would strongly urge you to take a peek yourself. Pxe is not an industry standard its an INTEL standard. A PXE server is a DHCP server responding to the DHCP offer request on port 4011. If your product doesn't respind to DHCP offers on 4011, please expand on how your pxe server functions. This answer does not have a solution that doesn't involve DHCP, and point of fact, as you've stated now twice, does involve another DHCP solution.

comment PXE boot a VMware guest by specifying the IP configuration in the guest's boot options. No DHCP available
serva is a pxe server. Its in section 1.5.1 of the spec. There are a lot of dhcp proxies (plane, Microsoft WDS) but the question is about doing it without DHCP. This solution requires not 1 but 2 separate dhcp servers. It's like asking for vegetarian sub but getting double pastrami with a side of bacon! At least you admitted you had an agenda.

Why wouldn't you simply provision the guest with a boot image from an ISO file?

@phxql - did you get the acl configured properly?

comment Cached credentials in ActiveDirectory and setting up machines
Only with MDT and a script to reset the preconfigured password, would this be possible. This would also put that credential at risk it the system is intercepted.

comment Active Directory: Permissions to get Kerberos Service Ticket
I'd have to get specifics on how you enabled the deny, but I can assure you that there is no Kerberos mechanism to grant an unauthenticated subject a service ticket

comment How does the DNS protocol switch from UDP to TCP?
@Barmar I didn't say it kept a persistent connectionbut if one is open it will use that rather than start all over again

@PawełCzopowik correct, afaik there is no way around that.(since anything from the DC would be domain traffic)

However if there is already a TCP connection it will only use TCP

comment Windows 2012R2 — Always-on comprehensive startup/shutdown logging
I'm not sure that you can leave it on permanently, if possible it also means disabling kernel executive paging and manually performing the merges depending on how many shutdown traceflags you want to analyze (which I'd prefer a computer to do)- which means 1 reboot cycle per flag.

comment Installing Server 2012R2 on VM with GPT harddrive issues
If it's more OSes than windows that means that secure boot must be disdabled and the UEFI boot must support the bootloaders required

I would suggest finding a professional admin to help with this. Reinventing the wheel is not the best solution.

out of curiosity, why are you not simply using MDT to build a litetouch deploy?
