I was tasked with installing Linux on different machines for my university and I did it by using PXE. At least I thought I did. I followed a guide and now I'm able to boot via network, but only one PC at a time. I was under the impression that this system would allow for multiple PCs to boot using the same image provided by the PXE server. The second machine always freezes up and kills the first one as well.
So maybe I should install the image provided by the server rather than just booting from it? How would I go on about this?
To sum up: I have four PCs, all need the same OS (including software). The PXE boot works great for one PC but not for more than that. I just need a way to distribute the image that is present on my server to all four PCs - does not matter if I have to install it or boot via network. I just don't want to install the OS + all necessary software for one PC at a time. Or is it possible to install the currently running OS while it's running?
