Intel AMTallows the console redirection through SOL feature and boot redirection through IDE-R feature. As you know, SOL can only do text based redirection. It is your responsibility to come up with creative images that can accomplish your goals.
You can come up with an image that you can redirect AMT to, and this image can pull all the needed files off the network for a fresh installation on a system. The same concept applies for extracting the image from the existing disk and copy the image to a new hard disk.
Hope this helps.
Correct. Intel AMT only supports CDROM and not DVD. Hopefulythiswill be fixed infuture platforms.
I want to take this opportunity to talk about a little know fact, afloppy disk image does not have to be 1.44M, it can be much larger. This sitefor example has images that are over 700M, you can find floppy images with very large sizes. I just mount them using Intel AMT Commander, run "HWRESCAN" in Outpost over the serial port to force the remote OS to re-scan PNP devices and the huge floppy will show up. At this point, it's a RW floppy and you can put a lot of files into it.
Just a cool trick.
