how to network boot the win2k installation
Posted on 2003-03-17
I have a laptop with an external cd-rom, but no floppy. Although I can select cd-boot in bios, it does not appear to be working. I want to install windows 2000 on my new harddrive (20GB), which is completely blank and not formatted. The only option left appears to be network boot.
From what I understand, this has something to do with DHCP or such, so it might be relevant to mention that i have another winxp pc on my network running a dhcp server.
When I choose network boot in bios, it loads up Managed PC Boot Agent (MBA) v4.00. Boot method can be either TCP/IP, Netware, PXE or RPL.
Now where do I go from here?
Any help is GREATLY appreciated.
