Network boot

Postby Shadowriser on Tue Sep 01, 2009 2:40 pm

My laptop I got for free and the cd-rom does not work. It did work when it wants too and I installed Ubuntu 9.04 with full disk encryption (what a mistake) Now it is super slow and the cd-rom does not work at all. My main PC is running Linux Mint KDE. The laptop is to old to support USB booting or I would do that. Is there an easy way to use the PXE network boot to install Linux Mint main on this laptop?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
