    i have a network card with the option of network boot and i have a laptop HP DV9000 without a working CD drive so i was searching how to install win xp from my main computer (in the bios menu there is network boot option so i assume that its possible) to my laptop


    basically what i want is formatting my laptop with my main computer (theorically using my CD drive on my cp to format my laptop with just a network cable)

    i found this french article about it but i didn't understand much

    supinfo-projects


    i found this too but didnt understand much

    so any help will be welcome

    If I remember correctly you need to start a tftp server in order to install Windows from the network.
    Easier method would be to boot from the USB stick instead.
