Hello. I'll be direct:

 

How do I set up TFTPD32 to install Windows over LAN?

 

I want to use a mini-laptop with Windows XP as a server to install Windows XP/7 to any PC via LAN.

 

My tftpd32 version is v3.23 Build Jun 2 2007 21:20:58, it should have a .hlp file but it's not there.

 

Sometimes I have problems with laptops refusing to boot from these USB sources:

  • Pendrive
  • Hard drive with a SATA/IDE to USB adapter
  • CD/DVD drives with SATA/IDE to USB adapter

So I need an alternative for these cases.

 

I tried browsing the tftpd forum but there is no tutorial. I registered but the confirmation e-mail is taking loooong to arrive.

 

I followed this guide:

https://www.cyberstr...e-booting-tftp/

and managed to get to the step 10, and couldn't advance any further from there. It required a password that I didn't set.

 

I see some people suggest other software like Serva but I'm not paying any $ for installing Windows.

The user and password is from a user that exist on the machine that is sharing the Windows 7 files you copy on step 1.

Yes or create another user with pass with access to the Share.

That could be sometimes problematic... I always avoid spaces or special characters on usernames.
