Clone windows over a network with SSH & DD
Do you think it would be possible to install windows 2008 over SSH using DD. I have a server that has no DVD drive and it won't boot off a usb drive and I want to put windows server 2008 on it, for developing a asp.net website. The only way I think I can do this is to install it on a VM on my workstation then using some Linux live cd to make an image of the install from the VM to the server. with something like this.
besides the fact that it will take forever to copy over 20gb. Do you think it will work? Or am I wasting my time? Or can anyone think of a better way to go about this?
