Preboot eXecution Environment (PXE)

The Preboot eXecution Environment (PXE, also known as Pre-Execution Environment; sometimes pronounced "pixie") is an environment to boot computers using a network interface which does not require the client to have any form of local boot media such as a hard drive. With PXE, clients can boot consistently and in an interoperable manner, regardless of the sources or vendors of the software and the hardware of both client and server machines.
