That would mean that your PC can detect the laptop's CD-ROM through the network during boot up. It is possible if your pc supports PXE network boot. Check your bios for that setting and google "Windows 7 PXE install"

Why not just buy a CD/DVD drive and put it in your pc? They are so cheap now.

I personally keep an old DVD drive with a SATA/IDE-to-USB adapter for cases like this. I have a couple of pcs at home with no DVD.
