Welcome to the Raring Ringtail edition of Ubuntu Netboot, a special flavor of the Ubuntu operating system tailored for system administrators and experienced users with special requirements who want to deploy the world's most popular free distribution on Linux over the network.

Availability

Ubuntu Netboot 13.04 was officially announced by Canonical on April 25, 2013 along with several other Ubuntu flavors, and supported with security patches and software updates until January 27, 2014. On the dedicated download section (see above) you can find links to the binary files and ISO images required to boot Ubuntu over the network.

Supported hardware platforms

As usual, the project supports a wide range of hardware platforms, which appear to be more or less in each new release. For example, support for the Armel architecture was completely dropped, as well as for the ARMhf ArmadaXP platform.

In Ubuntu Netboot 13.04 we can see support for the 64-bit (amd64), 32-bit (i386), ARMhf TI OMAP3, ARMhf TI OMAP4, ARMhf Calxeda Highbank, PPC (PowerPC) 32-bit, PPC (PowerPC) 64-bit, PPC (PowerPC) e500 and PPC (PowerPC) e500mc.

Booting Ubuntu over the network is easy with Ubuntu Netboot

As mentioned in previous reviews of this project, it has been designed from the ground up to allow the user to boot the Ubuntu installation system over the network, mount the local file systems with NFS, or boot the Ubuntu Linux operating system from a LAN (Local Area Network).

In addition, the project will help you to install the Ubuntu Linux operating system from existing Linux OS, by using PPPoE (PPP over Ethernet) via HTTP or FTP, as well as over PLIP (Parallel Line IP). Canonical provides detailed installation instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/13.04/installation-guide/.

Bottom line

All in all, users should keep in mind that Ubuntu Netboot 13.04 can only be used to install the Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) operating system on the aforementioned hardware platforms and via the supported network protocols.
