|Hello. This is the first time I have been on the computing.net forum. |
I'm using a different computer than what I'm writing about (just to let you know). The hard disk in the CQ2009f needs to be replaced. As of right now, the only thing that would work is to network boot, as it needs to run Windows XP. Both computers, the desktop and netbook, have XP and were home networked with the home networking wizard.
My question therefore is whether the desktop can boot off the netbook using the home network--not a server. I'm totally new to this whole thing--this really is curiousity. Both computers have an activated copy of XP, if anyone is curious.
