Is it possible to "dual boot" into either normal windows (booting from
the harddrive) or linux which is stored on the network? Ive looked into
something called pxe a little, but that looks more like a one way thing.
Linux only and it seems you need some sorta special bios for it.
I was wondering if there is something where you could pick which OS you
want to load, and if you pick the linux one, it will boot off a server
on my network.
Years ago I booted Sparc machines this way for the installation process.
Some years after that I tinkered with Knoppix which has (or at least
had) the capability built-in and ready-to-go. Around the same time I
tried to get a school lab to work this way, but was never successful, I
think because the PXE server was on a different virtual LAN and the
documentation at the time was insufficient for me to figure things out
before I had to give up.
But I do know it CAN work. Google is probably your friend in this case.
I'd search for "debian pixie boot" or "debian thin client" or something
