  • 70-270

    Hello,

    I am currently studying the section in Microsoft press concerning remote installations of XP. Most of it i understand until i reach the point one of the methodologies used called NET PC.

    What is NET PC is a utilty for network bootups like PXE?

    Re: 70-270

    Odd. I don't remember anything about Net PC when I was studying for the 70-270. However, that was about 3 years ago so things have probably changed a bit. I did a quick search for you and it seems that the term Net-PC is short for Network PC which simply means any computer that does not have a hard drive and removable disks. In other words, a thin client. There also seems to be some kind of industry standard "Net PC Specification."

    Check out some of these links:

    Does that help?

      Client computers that support remote installation must either meet the Net PC specification (which is, effectively, a system which can perform a network boot) or have a network adapter card with a PXE boot ROM and BIOS support for starting from the PXE boot ROM.

        In my point of view you can forget Net-PC totally, is not covered in the XP exam. When you do you practice exams, you won't find either.

        I passed for 70-270 two weeks ago and I didn't saw any question about Net-PC.

          I passed 70-270 about 7 years ago... Back then there wasn't any questions about Net-PC but well... It's a long time ago.

            I passed mine 2 years ago and don't know how. The exam didn't seem to test real world scenarios and tested me on things I had never practically done and never have since despite me having used XP for many years.

            Same here, nothing on Net PC.

            I passed but only just on that one. I found it the toughest of all the exams and expected it to be the easiest. Boy, was I in for a shock.

              From a trainers POV, you can more or less ignore non-MS technologies in most exams. For 70-270 the ONLY exception is "you must use a {gasp} third party utility to image a system after Sysprep"

              In this case, all they are saying is that to use RIS from the client side you must have either:
              A network card with PXE installed and enabled (PXENiC)
              OR
              A computer that meets the NetPC specifications (no details needed)
              OR
              A network boot disk (by implication a floppy) that will let the PC pick up an IP address from the DHCP server. This can be created with the Remote Boot Floppy Generator application -- RBFG.EXE
