Booting without a disk, is there a ready-made solution?

I heard that you can start a PC without a disk by connecting via LAN, if I'm not mistaken - a thin client ... In short, there is a laptop without hdd / ssd with minimal characteristics, I want to use it as a second monitor + I want to remove the stationary system unit, I used to do it similar by loading a laptop with an OS installed on it and via remote desktop, but now it is necessary without a disk

. Tell me, is there something like a ready-made solution with a minimum of necessary settings that must be done manually? I would like to install something like the server part, throw in the image, set the BIOS setting in the connected one and register the connection address. It would be ideal or to the edge, if there is, give a link to an adequate manual, thanks!

с ноутом чет непонятка какая-то, он работает, но недолго. Как бы объяснить, короче ставлю свежую лиц. на хард, все ок, проходит день и он больше не грузит ОС, а тупо висит, ничего не помогает, вставляю флешку, по новой накатываю ОС, он без проблем это делает и все повторяется, зависает или больше не грузит. И эта байда со всеми вариантами винды, с другими хардами, оперативкой... чертовщина какая-то, вот я и подумал, мож так...

to boot windows without disks, you need a server with the following functionality:
* dhcp server or advanced settings on the router, allowing you to specify which server will host tftp and distribute the bootloader
* tftp server, this server must distribute bootloader files - configuration text and pxe-loader (you can configure which config for the mac address of the machine)
* iscsi server (older versions of windows allowed other disk sources, for example, the system one was stupidly loaded into ramdisk, but I have an assumption that somewhere with win8.1 or exactly win10 it is possible to boot normally over the network only by iscsi)
all this can be raised both on a windows machine and on linux, incl. on separate iron solutions (iscsi and tftp on nas and dhcp an adequate router will allow you to configure), I strongly recommend using a linux machine for everything, there will be more understanding of what is happening and how to configure. For iscsi, use the simple istgt daemon, it's the easiest to set up.
google diskless windows 10 boot choose method and use.
For example
, I strongly recommend that you first configure windows on the disk, namely all the necessary drivers, and distribute the resulting image over the network.
ps in some cases iscsi works very slowly for some reason, I had a machine on which the iscsi disk speed was almost 100kb / s, which caused the download to take about two minutes, but then, as the drivers were loaded, everything worked fine, even the input output from sleep was correct.

You lift tptp the server
you do for loading an image. you need to create it with normal handles, but in theory you can use which LiveCD ubuntu thread
It already opens remote control
