The type of ESD determines the specific steps involved in creating and configuring the VM on the hypervisor.
I ran into this scenario recently while at a client’s site, working with SCCM to create a server build task sequence.
But there are situations were using PXE can be useful, including: Remember that since Windows Server 2012 R2 (WS2012 R2) Hyper-V and Windows 8.1 Client Hyper-V, there are two generations of virtual machine hardware specification.
Generation 1 virtual machines (the only generation on legacy versions of Hyper-V) make things a little tricky when it comes to PXEbooting.
Let me first point out that although SCVMM 2012 is well equipped to manage Hyper-V, VMware and Xen Server hosts, some features are currently focusing on Hyper-V as its primary citizen.
