I haven't done much research. This was really an idea that a reader requested
some time ago and I just never got around to writing up.
I'm not sure about your statement "DNF --installroot and kexec would work hand
in hand." What I had in mind was two different things.
The "dnf --installroot" command would be similar to what I demonstrated earlier
in "How to Build a Netboot Server, Part 1" (
) in the "Create
the Netboot Image" section.
For kexec, I was think of something more along the lines of:
# mount -o ro $INSTDISK /mnt
# kexec -f /mnt/isolinux/vmlinux --append="root=live:CDLABEL=$(blkid -o value -s
LABEL $INSTDISK) rd.live.image quiet" --initrd=/mnt/isolinux/initrd.img
I also gave a brief description of the QEMU method in the comments section of
"Netboot a Fedora Live CD"
). That is where the original idea for this article came from.

If you want to shoot me the any resources about the topic at hand that you know of that
would be awesome. Otherwise I'll need to do the research from scratch and that might
take a little longer to do.
