#StackBounty: #boot #system-installation #pxe CI/CD pipeline PXE boot image Ubuntu

Bounty: 50

I have a CI/CD pipeline using Packer to create a Ubuntu Desktop image from a Server image for virtual machines. I want to be able to use this method (or something similar) for physical machines.

I am new to PXE boot, but what is the difference? When booting a physical machines (e.g laptop or desktop) you only need a bootable USB with an ISO image. Can I use the same ISO image from the “virtual machine” pipeline?

  1. Can I create use the existing CI/CD pipeline for a PXE boot image?
  2. Is it possible to use the Ubuntu Desktop image instead of Server image with a preseed for PXE boot?
