I have two laptops connected by ethernet cable to a simple home router.
HP Pavilion dv6000 runs a Serva server on Windows 7.
ASUS x71q has a faulty DVD drive, and the F9 restore key does not work, so I've set up a Serva TFTP-server in order to restore Windows Vista on the Asus over my home network.
The Asus have some self-inflicted HDD error. I made a mistake with fdisk and set the HDD active partition to something wrong, and now I only have 'Grub rescue' on it.
The Asus has a dual boot of Windows Vista and Ubuntu 12.10. It still has the recovery partition, but without a working F9 key I can't reach it - and I was trying in a roundabout way to reach it by reinstalling Vista from PXE.
I have set the WIA_WDS_SHARE as accessible to anonymous login in the Group Policies. I only reach the ServaPENet login dialog box where I am expected to write in a user and a password.
However, I do not know what to write in this box as I have tried all the account names and passwords of the HP Pavilion, and I've tried all the account names of the Asus.
Where on the dialog box it says "Connecting to Serva's Windows Installation Asset, I get an added "Error!" This is further detailed by "Error: Connection failed with error 0x35". I have no idea what this means.
I hope someone could guide me a little and explain what I am missing. I can't see a way to set a password/user for the actual share - and I can only see a way to set accounts that can access it through the advanced sharing button.
Apologies if this is a bit vague. I'm at a point where I feel I know so little that I don't know what specific questions I should ask.
