Remote Installation Services

If you are familiar with using RIS under Windows 2000, not much has changed with the upgrade to Windows XP. RIS is an optional server-side service provided with Windows 200x Server that enables you to deploy Windows XP to a new system by booting to the NIC using an NIC with a Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) boot ROM enabled.

Other than booting client systems using a PXE boot ROM rather than a network boot disk, installing Windows XP using RIS is similar to installing over the network from a network share point. All files are copied over the network to the client station, and Windows XP runs a full install.
