Windows 7: boot & install XP from LAN

22 Feb 2011   #1

XP Pro 32-bit
boot & install XP from LAN


I'll soon get a new laptop with Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.
Our company uses XP sp3 32-bit as an OS. So I have to choose whether to wipe Windows 7 and install XP natively, or to install XP in a virtual machine(which I prefer).

The problem is, company XP install is weird - it can only be performed after booting from LAN card, then installation goes on automatically, files are copied from a remote server.
Can I do that with Windows Virtual PC - boot from LAN card and install XP from a remote server?
If I correctly remember, it was not possible in VPC2007.
