You can do this if you would have network KVM over there.  There is no way to install physical computer, because after reboot you will lost access to it.  I believe that there is not network card on device to let you connect by the network to some gui. Even if you want to boot from network by WDS you have to enable this in bios. You can prepare USB stick with prepared system image, boot form, then remote to system and clone image on physical hdd.

Is it a virtual machine or physical one?

You cannot remotely install windows 7 on a remote machine which has no disk drive.
