Booting with an ISO

Burning a CD/DVD#

To create a bootable CD-ROM/DVD, burn the ISO image netboot.xyz.iso to a blank CD-ROM/DVD. Insert the media into the server, set the proper boot order and boot up.

Virtual Machine Software#

You can also use these ISOs to boot any sort of VM in Citrix XenServer, Proxmox VE, VMware ESXi, VMware Fusion, VirtualBox.

Out of Band Virtual Media#

They are great for attaching to remote virtual media of a server like the Dell DRAC or HP iLOs. Because the iPXE boot disk is so light weight, they are great for starting installations where there might be really low bandwidth.
