Answer
Hello

Yes you can install multiple o/s's on one computer but to say you can do it via a server is dependent on how the connection is to that server as well as the o/s you are wanting to install. Personally if I were to know I was going to be installing multiple o/s's I would use vm ware (virtual machine) software.

For example, here is the link to step by step install for windows

Use this link to learn how to approach this using VM software:

Use this link to install Linux via server:

Expertise

As I have been volunteering in the 'windows' category since the inception of AllExperts, which has now moved to numerous windows categories. I will therefore be happy to answer any Windows 7,8 and 10 based question. What can't I answer? Not much, as this is the main reason I volunteered here, because I am hopeful the questions I can not answer will allow me to investigate the problem so that I can answer it. The TIPS and SOFTWARE support through my website at http://tpsconsulting.com can also be of some help.

Experience

I have owned my own computer consulting business for the past 17 years and since the very beginning I have volunteered with AllExperts in the hopes I would be able to learn from others mistakes and problems. The goal for me is to be able to research any problem I don't initially have the answer to, in the hopes I will be able to further benefit for my own clients when they come across a similar problem.
