Install trial WHS on system with no CD/DVD or OS? RRS feed

  • Question


    I am interested in loading the trial version I downloaded of WHS on an old PC I have. First, the PC I am trying to load WHS on does not have a CD/DVD drive installed, nor does it have an OS loaded on it. When we stopped using it back in the day, I formatted the drives and never loaded anything on it again. Now, I have read a few articles/threads about creating bootable USB drives, but they all use a Vista system to partition the drive. Unfortunately, I’m a bit behind the curve and am still running XP on both my laptop and home PC. Does anyone have a way to load WHS on my old system under these circumstances?
