Hi guys I this topic because I said I would, before i started a thread how to install? but didnt get astraight ans and many
gave many hints, and leads, I thank them first,
Here is how the story begins,
I got a laptop which doesn't have a CD rom but have a PXE boot system.
So I searched and found some software called "Tftpd32" which acts like a server in windows.
So I used it. After some effort I managed to install Windows on my Lap. here are the steps. Hope they help.
* You need Tftpd32 soft. Link
* Syslinux- from kernel.org
* Download winima61.exe from WinImage.com
crossed network cable XP or other OS running Computer and The Poor com which needs an OS.
Im using Following Guides...
http://home.allegiance.tv/~joem298/
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ok Lets Begin.
1. Connect the 2 PCs using the crossed network cable.
2. Configure the CD disabled com to PXE boot from bios.
3. Configuring Tftpd32,
3.1 Install Tftpd32 and Make a subdirectory in your pxe folder called 'pxelinux.cfg' (despite the '.cfg' this is a folder, not
a file)
3.2 In your pxelinux.cfg folder create a new text document and open it using notepad. Insert the following lines:
default boot
prompt 0
say booting...
label boot
kernel memdisk
append initrd=nameofimage.imz

nameofimage = Boot disk image, will install with Tftpd32. (in ext .imz)
3.3 Save the text document and rename it 'default' No extensions... just default.
Next....
The Tftpd32 settings
Just make them look like this.
And make sure all of the boxes in the Global Settings are checked except for SNTP server. Leave all of the other
settings at their defaults and click ok.
Alternately you can download what I used and make the settings and use it.
What I used Download
4. Then start the Tftpd32 on your com and THEN start the other computer, It hould ask to Press F12 to boot from
network or smthing. Then some Dos CMD will run ..................
And will ask you the connection Giv it as TCP IP
and then the IP and ETC leave them blank and proceed.
When It asks the User name and password to your computer give a valied username and password.
Then proceed. It will log in and again ask you for the password. Then It will successfully conect and will ask you to use
"msnet" to connect with other PC,
5. Type msnet Press enter
Then a console will open asking what to do.
Global, Profile, Map, Relogon Exit.
From this Use Map.
Then give the shared CD rom Drive letter as its on your computer,
Then computer name\share name (computer name can be found on Mycom right click > Propertes> computer name)
Then you will see "Command Completed Successfully" Then Exit. from the Map console.

Now you are mapped in to the CD rom of your computer through network.
So you Type the drive letter as Im using "I" and do the DOS stuff... (for Windows XP Im showing here)
First insert a win98 cd to cd drive
cd I (enter)
I:\>cd win
I:\win98>smrtdrv
then cd\
Insert Win XP CD and.....
I:\>cd i386 (enter)
I:\i386>winnt (enter)
Wooo.. Now the windows setup will start.
Then do the rest and do this in final... The setup will reboot in the middle. So you must copy the WinXP files to a Flash
Drive insert it to the Com and continue installation from that. (when it asks set the path to flash drive)
Hope this helps.
Regards, If any Problems Drop a mail.

Interesting tutorial. I've played around with TFTPD32 a bit for grey activity
It makes me wonder about using PXE to load an image of an XP (or other) installation across the network to restore a
PC or laptop to a standard configuration. That would be very useful if the system became borked by malware, registry
misconfiguration etc. and it would avoid the hassle of having to reinstall from scratch and activate multiple times (which
might make Microsoft start to ask questions).

This topic has been discussed quite a bit in other threads (given that I had the same laptop problem)
http://forums.hak5.o...h...st&p=146917
That was my orignal thread, I guess it's always handy to have another tutorial, the WINNER (Windows Is Not Necessary
for Everyone's RIS) method is very similar to yours (it uses TFTPD)

Either way using WINNER or TFTPD, please keep the knowledge flowing. I can guarantee somebody didn't know about
it. Great stuff guys.

ha i reach far now to a part where it says "...and finally, the path to the source files. In our example, there is a
\\10.1.2.11\OUTPUT share, no subdir, and therefore the path here is obviously /. But we could also say the share was
\\10.1.2.11\C$, and then, the path would have been /OUTPUT.
If you enter an invalid IP-Share-User-Path combination, then you'll be asked for a valid one another time."
an everytime its been askig back me to put ip etc... idk whats a sbm password/username am using windows 7 btw... all
this is from http://www.windowsdr...doc/using2.html ....

There is often more than one way to do things "the right way". Installing and setting up an operating system is no
exception to this. This guide is based on my experience working with XP since RC1, doing more custom installations
than I can count, and interaction/discussion with other geeks. I have found this method to offer the best results for
performance, stability, and error free installation. I make no guarantees. If you have a problem it is more than likely
your hardware and/or its drivers, or you didn't follow the drivers installation instructions. I don't have or claim to have
all the answers. If you have a suggestion for this guide.
