    Hi
    Have a look here, there is one on PXE, another for installing from
    windows or other OS.

    malcolmlewis, this are instructions for configuring a PXE server in Opensuse, I only have a Windows PC and the Laptop, I want Windows pc to be the server for installing the Laptop with Opensuse!

    Hi
    There are windows tftp servers, solarwinds have a free one. The other
    option is a vm on the windows machine.

    There was the other link, if you have a windows OS on the target
    machine.

    I guess you could always remove the HDD from the notebook and install a
    boot image (Install from USB on a small partition) and replace the
    drive in the target machine.
