Following is the tutorial for installing Oracle VM server through PXE.

PXE Server
Oracle VM Server 3.0.2

Step 1 Download & Mount OracleVM-Server.iso

mount -o loop /storage/os/OracleVM-Server-3.0.2.iso cd/

Step 2 Create folder to store oracle vm files.

mkdir -p /tftpboot/images/oraclevm/

Step 3 Copy required files to oraclevm folder under pxe.

cp cd/isolinux/mboot.c32 /tftpboot/images/oraclevm/
cp cd/isolinux/initrd.img /tftpboot/images/oraclevm/
cp cd/isolinux/vmlinuz /tftpboot/images/oraclevm/
cp cd/isolinux/xen.gz /tftpboot/images/oraclevm/

Step 4 append following lines in /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default

LABEL ovs3
kernel images/oraclevm/mboot.c32
append images/oraclevm/xen.gz --- images/oraclevm/vmlinuz --- images/oraclevm/initrd.img

Thats all, now with pxe boot you’ll find option to boot using ovs. Once you boot from ovs pxe, you need to either give path of iso image using nfs store OR give http path where content of cd is copied / cd mounted.
