    Question Installing Windows Via A Network

    is this possable? i.e. i boot up in DOS and then type

    http://192.68.8.18/g:/windows/setup.exe
    (IP Address Is Internal Network Only Dont Try Hacking You'll Only Feel Stupid)

    ??? or is that just friggin stupid?

    coz in dos i have seen sumit about boot with network enabled and somewhere else sumit about installing windows via a network.

    if it is can you tell me how i can go about installing it? because im considering building a server and cant be botherd to install a cd rom and want to max it with harddrives or say a shuttlesytem.

    any help will be apreciated.

    yes it can be done. You have to have a server in place with active driectory and a bootable network card.

    Why go to the borther for one machine?

    Why not just install from cdrom , then remove the cdrom and replace with hdd?

    otherwise you'll either spend ages making network boot disks, or setting up a windows RIS server.

    It isn't.

    10 Minutes to take a CD-rom drive out of another system and just sit it on top with the cables hanging about.

    Install Windows, rip it back out, et voila. Done.

    You don't have to screw stuff in.
