I tried to boot my TC1100 via PXE. I followed the instructions found at http://22.214.171.124/tc-one-thousand/downloads.html I built a new tc1000.img with the B44.dos driver (http://www.broadcom.com/docs/driver_download/440x/NDIS2-3.12.zip) and edited the protocol.ini and system.in_
The TC1100 boots like expected but when I try to connect to my server share using NET USE I only get Error 53: The computer name specified in the network path cannot be located.
Any ideas what I'm missing?
do you have a dhcp server? has the tablet been given an IP address on the same subnet as the machine you are trying to connect to?

My "server" PC has two NICs I set up TFTPD32 to run on the previously unused NIC as DHCP server.
The TC1100 is connected directly to the TFTPD32 NIC (via crossover cable).
The TC1100 connects to the TFTPD-server and loads the boot-image.
I get a dialog on my TC1100 to type TC1000 if I want to boot from network. After this I get a promt that asks for username, password and if I want to save a password file (or something like that) after that I get a promt that asks for the \\server\recovery - path. At this point I always get an error like mapping to Q: failed. I canceled the script (Ctrl+C), got a command promt and tried to bind the share manually - with the result from above.
Because I got that far, the connection to the server seems to work. I have the "Guest" account enabled at the server and the share has full access for everyone set, firewall is disabled on the NIC.

I found out, that the img-File etc. have to be in the root of the share and not inside some subfolder (like I had it configured).
Now I can connect to the share...

OK, how do I continue from here? I can't install windows, because the setup can't be run from dos...
I have OEM install CDs for my tablet so I can't use this restore image trick.

I found out, that I'll have to run i386\winnt.exe to start setup. The problem now is, that setup doesn't know where to put the swap file and won't install. Seems I have to get a bootable USB device.
