Hi Friends,

I am trying to install Windows 7 on my Netbook, but since it no DVD drive I need to do a PXE installation, but for this I need a ima or image file of the iso.

Which files from the Windows 7 iso must include in the ima-file?

You really don't want to do a PXE boot, I would suggest that you install from USB instead.  It's really easy, here's step by step directions to install (http://dotnetwizard.net/vista-stuff/tips-how-to-bootinstall-windows-7vista-from-usb-flashhard-drive/).

- Get a 4GB USB Drive and plug it in under Vista (i dont think XP has diskpart)

- Click Start > type CMD and right click Run as Admin

- Inside cmd, type and enter the followings:

diskpart
type list disk and you will see all connected disks and numbers

select disk X (X being the number of the usb disk )
clean
create partition primary
select partition 1
active
format fs=fat32
assign
exit
- Open your drive under explorer, copy all files from vista/7 iso to the usb drive.

- in Bios, set to boot from USB and have fun.
