We service a few domains around my city which usually consist of a Linux server (ADDC/DNS/DHCP/VPN) and Windows 7 Pro clients. When we servcie these workstations we go to each workstation, insert a custom-made Windows 10 live USB image which has all kinds of tools for maintaining a Windows PC. It does things you simply cannot do while Windows is running, such as clearing all temporary and cache files or defragmenting all files on the disk. As you probably guessed, this wears out sneakers and is repetitive.

I would like to setup my Gentoo laptop to be a PXE host to host the Windows 10 live ISO we created. Is this possible? My goal would be less walking, less time wasted waiting for USB2 systems to boot, and faster load times for said ISO.
