I've downloaded Windows 10 ISO file and tftpd32. How can I configure the tftpd32 software to boot a network computer directly from my Windows 10 ISO file? Please help! Thanks in advance.

PXE wimboot is very handy and fast for booting of Win10PE Or Win8.1SE boot.wim from Network.

Entry in menu.ipxe of Tiny PXE Server for PXE wimboot of Win10PE Or Win8.1SE boot.wim file

:w81x64_wim
kernel ${boot-url}/wimboot
initrd ${boot-url}/bootmgr.exe                  bootmgr.exe
initrd ${boot-url}/Boot/bcd                     bcd
initrd ${boot-url}/Boot/fonts/segmono_boot.ttf  segmono_boot.ttf
initrd ${boot-url}/Boot/fonts/segoe_slboot.ttf  segoe_slboot.ttf
initrd ${boot-url}/Boot/fonts/segoen_slboot.ttf segoen_slboot.ttf
initrd ${boot-url}/Boot/fonts/wgl4_boot.ttf     wgl4_boot.ttf
initrd ${boot-url}/Boot/boot.sdi                boot.sdi
initrd ${boot-url}/sources/boot.wim             boot.wim
imgstat
boot || goto failed
goto start

How to make Win10PE x64 boot.wim file is described here.

 

After booting with Win10PE from Network you can use WinNTSetup and your Win10 ISO file for Install of Windows 10.

In WinNTSetup use R-mouse to mount Win10x64 Setup ISO file as virtual DVD-drive and then select (again) install.esd or install.wim in folder sources.

Select your (hidden) internal FAT32 drive Z: as UEFI Boot Drive or select your FAT32 USB-Stick as UEFI Boot Drive.

 

After booting with Win8.1SE x64 or Win10PE x64, 
then one can use WinNTSetup_x64.exe to read the Product Keys and to Reset Password of the selected Offline Windows User Account.

 

After booting from USB with WinPE then in WinNTSetup use upper left program menu and select Offline Windows.

I apologize that the steps are still quite complicated for me.

Is there an easier way? Thanks!

Booting and Install from Network is never easy, but with all the details as given in the description, it must be doable ....

 

Booting from USB provides a much easier way to Install Windows 10.

 

Install of Windows 10 from USB by using Media Creation Tool

Download Media Creation Tool and use it to make USB-stick bootable in UEFI or BIOS mode with Setup for Win10_x64.
