Booting PC from a mobile using bluetooth-enabled function on both sides

Hi Team,

I own a not very new cellphone with a micro-SD card. I like that phone though it wouldn't allow me the "mass storage device" which could have enabled a wired boot of a Puppy Linux onSD via USB cable to my PC.

Nevertheless, my phone is bluetooth-enabled, so -

the question is: can I boot a bluetooth-enabled PC from a bluetooth-enabled cellphone ??

If your BIOS supports booting over bluetooth, then there should be not problem.
But I think there is no BIOS that supports this feature. Sorry.
