Does you PC's BIOS have that functionality ??

"Wake-on-LAN support is implemented on the motherboard (BIOS) of a computer and the network interface (firmware), and is consequently not dependent on the operating system (and NIC drivers) running on the hardware. Some operating systems can control Wake-on-LAN behaviour via hardware drivers. If the network interface is a plug-in card rather than being integrated into the motherboard, the card may need to be connected to the motherboard by a cable. Motherboards with an embedded Ethernet controller which supports Wake-on-LAN do not need a cable. The power supply must meet ATX 2.01 specifications."

I guess, you get confused with PXE (Preboot eXecution Environment ), which is used, to boot a pc from LAN.

Wake-on-LAN and boot from LAN are indeed very different things.

OP: beore you can boot from the network you will need a server hosting the image that you wish to boot. Do you have such a setup? If so, give details of the server, the OS running on it, and the OS that you wish to boot. Then it may be possible to give a fuller answer.

Whatever the OP said he wanted to Boot a PC, did not state wether or not he wanted to boot to install an O/S, boot as a terminal, wake up the from an O/S hibernation mode or whatever.
