PartedMagic is a disk management solution.
It does disk partitioning, disk cloning, data rescue, disk erasing, benchmarking.
Note, since August 2013, the tool has required a fee to download.

Lets now see how to PXE boot this linux distribution.

For this we will use TinyPXE Server and IPXE.

 

First lets prepare our iPXE script (save it to rescue.ipxe)

#!ipxe
set boot-url http://${next-server}
kernel ${boot-url}/memdisk iso
initrd ${boot-url}/images/pmagic/pmagic_2013_02_28.iso
boot

Now, lets setup TinyPXE Server

pmagic

Now, lets boot !

Note :

-My iso is from february 2013, I cannot tell for sure it earlier or newer ISO’s will boot thru PXE

-This method (using memdisk) requires at least twice the size of the iso (lets round it up to 1 gb). if this is an issue, you may want to revert to booting pmagic filesquash.
