|I just realized what this is, its "Boot and Nuke". You do not want to do this. This tool is only for wiping drives that you want to resell. It ensure the data is zero formatted so that the new owners can't get the data through forensics tools. This will leave you with a brick because without a CD-ROM how are you going to load the new OS and if the drive is wiped it will no longer boot. |
If you really want to install a new Windows on it without a CD ROM then you can setup your Domain Controller with Distributed File Services and PXE the box off of it but if you do not know what you are doing then this could be difficult.
Again, I recommend getting an external CD ROM and installing Windows from it. If you can't get into the BIOS of the computer to set it to boot from CD then you have other problems because you would have no way to setup the NIC to PXE boot.
Also, Boot and Nuke will not erase the password for your BIOS. This can only be done by shorting a jumper on the mother board. As suggested, call the vendor for this system to get help on resetting the password if the BIOS has one.
