I want to upgrade my work laptop from XP to Windows 7.
However I work several thousand miles away from the physical network and I connect each day via CheckPoint SecuRemote VPN software.
How can I upgrade my machine whilst remaining attached to the same domain without physically attaching it to the network?
At the beginning of the upgrade process I will no longer have the VPN software installed so I when I set up the computer name and domain my machine will be unable to connect. I imagine I'm going to have to use temporary settings until I get the VPN software but is there an easier way?
