I've just ran out of blank dvd's but i want to install Win 7 x64 on my laptop (HP 530) and my usb-stick is to small (only 2gb) so i cant use that for installing.
Is there any way of installing Win 7 over network? if i mount the image-file on my stationary and share it?

Does your mobo support boot over lan? I am not sure on the HPs...if you can then you should be able to.

are you starting the install from windows or by rebooting...

You had Win2008 Server on your laptop?

Have you tried right-clicking the installer, going to properties, compatibility, and then picking Vista?
If not even that works, you can try extracting the installer package with 7-zip (it'll extract installers in .exe files as well) and then manually installing the driver from device manager by right-clicking on the network device and selecting update driver and then pointing it at the folder where you extracted the installer.
