    Default Using PXE to boot BT over network

    I have an old laptop that I want to install BT to, but it doesn't boot from USB and I don't have a CD-ROM drive for it. It has a PXE NIC though. Would it be possible to remote boot BT using JTR MPI Instant Cluster Modules, boot it to a point where I can run a hard disk install?

    Thanks in advance!

    I had the same problem with my Toshiba Portege, bought 3.5-2.5 adapter and hooked the 2.5 HD to my pc and installed as normal, then reinserted into laptop. usually cost 15€.

    Never tried the pxe boot in bt2 though.

    Good tip ermski2k. I found another laptop that can boot from a CD-ROM drive and installed BT onto the old laptop's hard drive using this new laptop. Now this old laptop has a new lease on its life! Thanks.
