Default Network Install Mac to PC

Hi,

I have an old Laptop without a CD drive, is there anyway I can install windows on it through my home network, using my iMac?

The Laptop gives me the option to use PXE as a boot option.

I see alot of software for Windows but nothing that will help me using an iMac.

Any help/theories would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

USB 2.0 TO SATA IDE CABLE FOR HDD WITH UK POWER ADAPTER on eBay (end time 17-Jan-11 06:55:33 GMT)

buy one of those and then use a DVD writer if you have one from a desktop and turn it into an external and then install the OS.

you wont be able to do what you planning to do is which is intially known as RIS. I know that companies usually have this approach in order to install softwares and so on.

kind regards
