    Have you looked at Windows Thin PC? Free under Software Assurance

    When I played I had it boot with no Explorer session which launched RDP rather then Explorer. I had a script run every min to see if rdp was running if not then start it.

    I installed the Windows thin PC.

    Err not right sure how to get usage ouf of this.

    Seems there is no RDP or anything to use for a remote session.

    This thinclient sees to be thin on instructions also.

    Google's not much help

    Windows Thin PC is a cut down version of Windows 7. So it will behave in most ways exactly the same as Win 7 just with a smaller footprint.

    RDP should be installed (if not you can download i think) type MSTSC from the command line and it should lauch RDP

    Debian here, too - a basic text-only install and then the lightweight XFCE window manager on top of that. I have also used Slax and SystemRescueCD as PXE-bootable systems.

    Cheers

    Am trying to get systemrescuecd to boot from pxe, I managed with gparted which needed a filesystem to reside on a webserver.

    I have not yet managed with systemrescuecd but am looking into this.

    And slax i will try too.

    Any pointers on systemrescuecd setup for pxe?

    Thanks
