|What do I need to put on the server so a computer can boot off it and then install an os? |
We have 75 dell gx110 computers that were donated.
They don't have cd roms or A:drives.
The bios only have two options .Boot off c: or the network.
The hard drives were wiped before being donated.
There is a slot to put one in. Comparable to a laptops cdrom or A: drive.
Took one apart and tried to connect a regular cd rom but the connector isn't standard.
Then tried a ribbon with two connections but it wont support two devises on one cable.
So, to load these....I need a means to boot off the server and then install an os. They are going to a school were cd roms and A: drives are not needed...just an OS.
I have tried a usb A: drive.
I have tried a usb cdrom
I have tried a hard drive with an os and the i386 files on it to do a repair.
I did locate an A: drive for it...but as mentioned it wont boot off an A: drive.
So some how I need it to boot off the server and then install an os.
A penny for your thoughts....
