There is a hole in the bucket maria my dear.

Was thinking about doing a remote install with MSWindows 10. So I went to the Microsoft website to find out what to do. You need a special program to do the install. Oops if you are not running Microsoft Windows, you can not download the file. So I decided to read the documentation.  In reading the documentation, I find that you need a fully working Microsoft Windows machine to do the install. If I had a fully working machine, I would not need the software.

Microsoft Fail.
