Booting up Kali Linux over Network – PXE Boot
Today on K4linux we will talk about Booting and installing Kali over the network (PXE), in computing, the Preboot eXecution Environment (PXE) specification describes a standardized client-server environment that boots a software assembly, retrieved from a network, on PXE-enabled clients. On the client side it requires only a PXE-capable network interface controller (NIC), and uses a small set of industry standard network protocols such as DHCP and TFTP.
Setup a PXE Server on Kali Linux
First, we need to install dnsmasq to provide the DHCP/TFTP server and then edit the dnsmasq.conf file.
apt-get install dnsmasqnano /etc/dnsmasq.conf
With the edits in place, the dnsmasq service needs to be restarted in order for the changes to take effect.
service dnsmasq restart

Configure Target to Boot From Network
With everything configured, you can now boot your target system and configure it to boot from the network. It should get an IP address from your PXE server and begin booting Kali.
