Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC
Is it possible to PXE netboot windows XP Setup? I have a laptop with no drives other than the HDD and I can't do an in-place reinstall of windows xp.
My other option is to put the HDD into another laptop, but it has a different HAL. Is there a way to install windows xp up to a certain point on the other laptop, before the HAL is decided, and then move the HDD back to the original hardware?
Put the HDD in any other computer , creat a folder called XPbackup and copy the XP cd to the folder, Start the XP install from the other computer , when the install stops for CD key , turn of the computer and remove the HDD and put the HDD on the laptop and turn it on , Mostly the installation should start from where it stoped. If the Xp install askes for the source files , browse to the folder created and point to the files. Most of the time XP will install a generic HAL so no need to worry.
