Clean boot to notebook via desktop over PXE
I have an older Toshiba Tecra A5 notebook which does not have a built-in DVD drive, nor do I have an external DVD drive. BIOS does not support USB boot, but does have a PXE boot option.
My desktop is an older Dell model with a working DVD, but no wireless capabilities.
Both computers are running activated Win 7 Ultimate X86 and are connected through a wireless access point ...Linksys WRT54Gv8: running firmware is micro dd-wrt. Both IP's are dynamic, but almost never change.
Objective is to use Ultimate boot CD to completely wipe and re-partion the Tecra via the desktop, where Ultimate boot is located.
Unable to employ ADHOC, desktop is not wireless, cannot afford to buy anything new, and I also enjoy a good challenge.
I am looking for the most basic method, without using homegroup nonsense etc.
