I currently have to reinstall my old Toshiba Laptop (WinME) and like to put XP on. It turned out that the DVD-ROM drive has problems reading CDs, so the installation left me with a blank C: drive and is unable to read beyond a certain point on the CD. (The CD works just fine on another machine).
It came to my mind, that it should bepossible to boot the machine via network (Bios option is available and the net-interface is PXE able).
Has somebody done this before or is there some pieces of info anywhere?
I'd have two more machines available to act as server: on under XP Pro and one under XP Home (unfortunately no Win Server avaliable).
I've never done that before, and I could not find any usefull information in MS KB or elsewhere, besides the statement "It's possible but not explaind here". :confused:
So before I go off scretching bits and pieces together I'd like to ask y'all if there is some info. Maybe this is a topic worth a tutorial...?
