Windows 7 extreme installation
Guys, Ive got a riddle for you.
I need to install windows 7 x64, but:
-Ive got no DVD drive
-No free hard drive that I can use as install media (well ive got but active partition has winXP on it :P so hard to boot install files from it)
-1 GB flash drive
-booting via PXE works but WindowsPE 2.0 (from How to Install Vista on a M200 without a CD Drive using TFTP | RyanTAdams.com) wont properly configue my network card (ipconfig turns out blank) so I cant access install files.
-Tried to update WindowsPE to 3.0 and it works, boots, logins into 'technician' PC but wont launch setup.exe (says that I need x64 OS).
-Tried using WinPE 3.0 x64 but that one wont boot. Crashes at startup.
I used updated TFTPD with built in WinPE files. I belive that if I could build a proper 64bit WinPE 3.0 from WAIK it would work. I just swapped .wim files and couple others from WAIK->TFTPD.
Any ideas? Maybe other istall methods - dividing install files into 4 parts and i could walk between PCs with my flash drive. Maybe other ideas? Maybe help with building WinPE 3.0. Dunno.
PS. Ive spent whole night trying to figure that one out. When i solved one problem, another popped right up. So sorry if the post is hard to comprehend. And for misspelling.
Oh and I know that 4gb flash drive costs like 15 bucks but Im a student (and to make it more funny, computer science student) ;P
