Installing XP/2003 from Serial console

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any idea how to redirect XP/2003 to install using a serial port as console?

I can't find any reference anywhere but it must be possible!

I'm trying to use a Dell Powervault 715N as a NAS on my LAN.

When installed I intend to access with VNC - There's no problem setting up an automated install of XP and VNC but I need to pass some parameters to configure.

Thanks

Mike G

The easiest method is to install Windows on a simular motherboard and to transfer the HD to the powervault when finished. as long as the motherboard uses the same HAL and mass storage driver you should be OK, all of the devices on the PowerVault 715N have their drivers build in to 2003 (I never tried XP). If you want to do it the hard way take a look at http://en.community.dell.com/forums/p/17729873/17889070.aspx.
