Using Ventoy for PXE booting - weasek - 06-17-2020

First off, thank you for the amazing tool!!  I've been using this for a few weeks and really love what you've give the community.  

My question is, would it be possible to utilize Ventoy in a PXE environment?  It would be great to boot Ventoy over the network and then have it look in a set directory for ISO's.  Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you again!

Sorry, can NOT support.
Ventoy is based on disk.

Take linux for example.
After the kernel booted, it must find the ISO file, mount it and continue the installation process.
Currently the search is based on disk. If the iso file is on the PXE server side, the whole solution must be refactored.

I understand -- Figured it was worth looking into.  

@awengers44 -- Thank you for sharing.  I'll have a look into what you've shared.
