are there any way to install Atomic via PXE in unattended mode?

I am a bit of confused, because I found conflicting information about the existence of kickstart in Atomic. According to this page, kickstart is not available yet, but according to another page is available.

At the moment, only pre-generated disk images are available. A future release will have Anaconda support and thus support all installation scenarios that Anaconda does, including bare metal. - http://www.projectatomic.io/docs/gett...

The installation is guided by the Anaconda tool that is also used in Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. - http://www.projectatomic.io/docs/fedoraatomicbaremetalinstallation/

Oh, and by the way: I have tried to boot an iso image from the second link, but it didn't work.

I also am trying to do a pxe boot install, but the images in the pxeboot folder are 0 bytes. I've tried to use the normal vmlinuz and initrd.img, but it fails on dracut-initqueue warning /dev/root does not exist. My test server is old, there is no other way I can install it.

I have not used kickstart myself, but I believe it should be possible using the docs in the second link you mentioned.

Also, there is a new Fedora 22 Beta ISO available (linked from the Performing a Bare Metal Installation of Fedora Atomic page).

That "Bare Metal" page had a link pointing to an out of date ISO; I encourage you to try again.
