The package di-netboot-assistant (PTS) provides a tool to simplify the preparation of files for TFTP net booting.

  • Downloads and extracts all the files needed and takes care of organizing them.
  • Prepares a top level menu, which allows one to choose from all installed netboot images.
  • Supports PXElinux and grub-efi.
  • Helps with preseeding the installer in order to set up systems completely automatically.


  • Sysadmins, who need to configure network boot services to install machines (completely automatic, if preseeding is used) over the network.
  • Developers, who need to install new versions and distributions often.

For further information, take a look at the README, README.preseed and the example configuration samples.
