Try googling "Windows Embedded"


"A diskless system can boot from the following file system sources:
    * A storage device that does not have physically rotating media, but instead uses flash 
memory or battery-backed RAM.
    * A bootable CD-ROM that uses the Windows Embedded Standard Enhanced Write Filter 
    * A file system that is accessible through a network connection, for example, a system that 
boots from a file system in a remote location.
    * ROM-based storage. "
