#34 drbl pxe boot of vm image

wishlist (20)

Now that clonezilla supports vmfs, will it be possible to pxe boot a vmware image? Something akin to the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure in Win2008R2 where a virtual machine image can be used for cloning to a hard drive or run from a vm.

    This is an interesting question.
    However, there is nothing about vmware service in Clonezilla, so it can not be done now.
    On the other hand, you can install DRBL on the GNU/Linux on VMWare, and you can PXE boot the client machine.
