After pressing f12 on a PXE boot I get a blank screen

I am trying to deploy xp on several of these cloudbooks.  I know it will install.  However, I wanted to use Ghost images to do it.  I also wanted to save an image of the current configuration.  I don't have a floppy that I can use to boot and can't make a cd.  I wanted to us PXE boot to connect.  However, I can't even get it to come up with the first RIS screen.  When I press F12 the screen goes blank.  No matter how long I leave it it doesn't change.

Any ideas?  I was unable to find another PXE compatable computer to test it with.

I would think that either your Server is not set up correctly, or perhaps a setting in the BIOS is not correct.

A floppy or CD would make life much easier, even an external USB version of one of them should work.

I hope this helps !
