Hello Cyberpeople,
How's everyone?

My computer has an option in the Bios and in the boot menu for the "internal network adapter boot."

Can I use this to install an OS? :p

How do I know whether I have a static IPv4?

And by a shared folder, can this be a shared folder from a local network computer?

If a local network computer has internet connection [and therefore an IP address], does this count [for the static IPv4]?

My crashed computer [Needs OS install] has a formatted hd, is this whole processs still possible?

A static IP address is required for a DHCP server. In order to boot from PXE, you also need a server that hosts PXE images. You can Google for documentation on how to do it under Linux and Windows, but it isn't necessarily easy.
