Hello Hassan,

 

 Thank you for the clarification.

 

What tool are you using to access remotely the system? 


What BIOS or OS configuration have you done on the system to access it remotely? 


Are you getting any error message while try to boot from the image?

 

We will be looking forward to your reply.

Hello Hassan,


Once you load the ISO image and reboot your system, are you getting the prompt of booting from the CD? If not, this is often because the boot is too fast relative to the delayed keyboard response; the recommendation is to go into the BIOS and slow down the boot so it can catch the boot to ISO feature.

Hello  Sergio S,

 

No, I am not getting the prompt of booting from the CD. The win 10 pro first of all is not uploading properly taking too longer time. How much bandwidth or Mbps required for this process?

 

Can you recommend me the best tool for remotely re image windows 10 desktops / laptops with vPro.

Hello Hassan-Engineer,


Thank you for waiting for our updates.

 

Using the AMT network interface that is on 200Kbs to remote boot an entire modern general-purpose operating system is going to take a long time. It is possible, but if anything disrupts it during this long transaction there is a risk of a retry. If need an out-of-band interface to reimage a system with a full OS will often just use the AMT interface for a small bootable OS and then bootstrap off of that to load the large general-purpose OS inband off of a boot server (i.e. PXE) that has a much larger network interface.


So in the end this is not a good practice.


Please let us know if you need more assistance.

Hello  Sergio S,

 

Which small bootable OS would you recommend to use for the AMT interface?

Is it necessary to set up a PXE boot server in a local environment to load a full OS image, or is another alternate also available?

Hello Hassan-Engineer,


The small bootable OS would be Windows PE for example which image size should be less than 400 MB. About the PXE option, it could be possible to take advantage of the higher internal bandwidth within the same organization subnet. Actually sounds like a clever idea considering the original bandwidth limitations you have.
