What is Serva 32/64?
Serva is an Automated PXE Server Solution Accelerator based on an all-in-one portable multi-server engine including BINL(RIS/WDS), HTTP, FTP, TFTP, DHCP, proxyDHCP, DNS, SNTP and SYSLOG protocols.
Serva is a light (~3 MB), yet powerful Microsoft Windows application. It was conceived mainly as an Automated PXE Server Solution Accelerator. It bundles on a single exe all of the underlying server protocols and services required by the most complex PXE network boot/install scenarios simultaneously delivering Windows and non-Windows assets to BIOS and UEFI based targets.
It includes proxyDHCP and a WAIK (Windows Automated Install Kit) and ADK (Assessment and Deployment Kit) independent RIS and WDS server alternative. Serva's application field also tackles the ultra-fast set-up of simple single-protocol solutions like i.e. HTTP, FTP or TFTP server for file delivery.
The application does not require installation, it does not require Internet connection, it does not save keys on your Windows registry, and it can be used right away. Serva includes a very simple and comprehensive interface that will quickly guide you through all its settings.
Serva is a full C/C++ multi-threaded application that runs from Windows 2000 to Windows 10.

..it's because it is amazing.
Start Serva and within the hour you have a fully functional pXe server within a network. Another DHCP in the LAN ? Tick proxy DHCP, done. TFTP, FTP, HTTP protocols brain dead easy to configure. Windows based images require virtually zero configuration. Linux distros, while not as easy to configure, require extra patching which are provided in the excellent documentation for all major distros. Boot Hiren as a memdisk raw image, some obscure dos program ? Easy.
Support is also lightning fast to answer and helped me find a solution for an obscure distro that wouldnt pxe boot.
Serva has more stuff too for more advanced users and the free version is feature complete for evaluation or casual pxe booting.
Pros : Serva Cons : ???
Serva is a truely comprehensive and flexible solution for PXE boot. It combines all the features and able to boot a variety of OS including Windows and different distributions of Linux. The Srrva is easy to setup, stop and rrstart. In addition, the supporting person is helpful and response is very fast. Hope more and more new users will benefit from using Serva.
After testing so many PXE I love Serva. This helped us to image and deploy OS with one application. Easy to update different software versions that need to be deployed & works excellent.
Good PXE servers are hard to come by. Most are either difficult to setup and maintain, or come bundled with software you don't need.
I've used Serva off-and-on throughout the last few years and it's rather easy for use. Just open the exe, turn on a few settings, set a repository folder and extract some ISO's into the appropriate folders. For anything Windows 2K and newer, Serva will automatically add the installer to the boot list.
I've not used the license version, only the free community version. Though if I ever need an always on PXE server, this will definitely be my first choice.
It's perfect. Simple and easy to configure.
Its simple and easy to works like a charm and enables me to access lots of tools at boot time through network boot
Accomplishes everything promised and more. Really great for it maintenance. Easy to configure and use, plus support answers instantly
