I have a downloaded disk image for the windows server operating system that I want to put on a new harddrive.
I don't currently have a dvd or usb stick available so i'm trying to do without.
Will it be possible to while booted up in windows mount the disk image in daemon tools and run the setup to format and install windows on the new harddrive?
To be clear I'll restate. I'm saying that I have a complete working computer I'm booting up with. The new hard drive will be installed WITH the old one at the same time.
Using the disk image in a virtual drive, I'll be attempting to install windows on the other hard rive. Will it work?
Be clear I'm not asking if I can use a virtual disk on the new harddrive to install, I'm not that stupid.
