PXE from server, but image to/from different computer

Recommended Posts

Hello,  I am trying to find a way to setup our server to allow us to PXE boot our computers for imaging.  However, we will have a workstation laptop running Win 10 with MDT 2013 installed.  We want to send the wim files to the laptop and unicast from the laptop to the computers.  For example, I have a lab of 25 computers, with a network switch in the same room.  The laptop will be connected to the same switch, the computers will PXE boot using our WDS server, but will pull the image from the wim file stored on the laptop or send the image to the laptop.  Has anyone done this before?  This is on a local campus, with multiple buildings, and have more than one tech with their own issued laptop.  Any help that you can provide will be greatly appreciated.  We are currently still running Windows 7 in our labs and the server is Server 2012 R2 Datacenter, running MDT build 8443.
