Network install with no PXE/DNS
I've been trying to figure this out all day. Is it possible to boot from a basic image on a CD or USB stick or something and install from a network image that YOU specify? I have a bunch of computers that will require several different installs. I have all of the ISO's downloaded to a server ( a local web server as it turns out ) but I don't want to be burning all of these disks. A PXE server would be great, but some of the machines don't have that ability, not to mention, I'm on a rather restricted network in that regard. All of the machines have CD-ROMs, so i guess as long as I could start the system up, I could take the CD-ROM out once the install has started. Anyone have any advice?
