PXE - Remote Boot

  1. Hi Guys,
    I have a real gem for you.....

    I Have an XP Machine and a machine with "Just Drives" (Old Celeron)
    They are connected with a Linksys router.

    I am trying to network boot the Old Celeron (I do not want to install an OS on this computer. It will be a NAS).

    I am getting the following messages:

    PXE-E53 (No Boot File)
    PXE-M0F (Exiting Intel PXE Rom)

    What do I do?
    - I spent most of the day googling it with no real progress.
    And How do I boot over a network?
    - Without the instalation of an OS on all machines.

    Would appreciate any and all information, Ideas, suggestiions, etc.

    Thanks...

    PXE (aka. 'Pixie' ;)) booting is cool, but probably way more trouble than it should be... Or at the very least more trouble than you might expect.

    If you insist its worth the time, check out these interesting articles, but I'll tell you know... You're going to spend less time installing OSes by hand than getting a PXE server running the way you'd like. :)
