Is it possible to use a linux boot cd, delete all partitions on hard drive, place windows 7 installation files on the local hard drive, reboot and have it install windows 7 from and to the same drive? Windows image is more than 10GB so DVD not possible. Reason for reinstall is often virus on client. Therefor I don't want to use USB-devices. Computer is often on other side of the world. I possibly also want to do recovery of files or copying stuff in order to do forensics.
