Hello Elenal,
i can not find the uption to use a pxe-server (WDS/RIS) during bootable media builder.
Which version do i need for this? Is there a full manual available?

Hello Maurice,
If you do not see the WDS/RIS option in the media builder, most likely you have an edtion for stand-alone servers of workstations (the one without remote connection and the management server). You need the Advanced Server or Advanced Workstation edition.

Maurice, if you are using Windows Server 2008 you will unfortunately not be able to use WDS with Acronis - see http://kb.acronis.com/content/1753

But you may use the Acronis PXE Server instead:
