    I have a new laptop that has only an internal HDD and no other disks installed. The HDD has no OS on it. My laptop supports network booting and I want to learn how to do this (i dont care what os is installed). I don't have any external drives. Suggestions as to how I should install an os through the network are appreciated.

    First, install a Windows server that will supply the services to boot from the network... :)

    You really don't want to try to do this, do you?
