Intel® vPro™ platform includes Intel® Active Management Technology and its Boot Redirection IDE-R/USB-R feature allows you to boot remote PC from bootable image from IT console.
There are few tools that will allow you to use Boot Redirection:
it includes GUI that you can customize to your needs with the Intel® vPro™ Technology Module for Powershell GUI Editor Tool - https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/21557/The-Intel-vPro-Technology-Module-for-Powershell-GUI-... https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/21557/The-Intel-vPro-Technology-Module-for-Powershell-GUI-...
Above listed Intel tools are free of charge.
Some 3rd party, paid management consoles also support and leverage Intel® Active Management Technology and its Boot Redirection IDE-R/USB-R feature:
There may be other (local) vendor console tools that me or even Intel is not aware as Intel® AMT Software Development Kit (SDK) http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/download-the-latest-intel-amt-software-development-kit-sdk http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/download-the-latest-intel-amt-software-development-kit-sdk is publicly avalaible and potentially any ISV can create its own Intel® AMT console SW.
Intel® AMT Boot Redirection IDE-R/USB-R feature can be used to boot remote Intel® vPro™ PC from any bootable image.
One of use cases it to use MS Windows installation bootable image file (.ISO or USB -.img) to boot PC remotely and reimage OS.
I have used MS Windows Media Creation tool to download bootable USB image then converted it to .img file and used this image unmodified directly with Intel® Manageability Commander - IDE-R function to boot Intel® vPro™ PC remotely + used Intel® AMT HW KVM (Remote Desktop function in Intel® Manageability Commander) to see and control installation process GUI remotely.
The whole process over 100Mbps LAN network took approximately 25 min (faster LAN will not speed it up as Intel® AMT Boot Redirection throughput for ME FW 11.x is ~ 25Mbps)
you can also use Intel® vPro™ modules for MS* Power Shell (via GUI) and MS Windows 10 ISO image to boot Intel® vPro™ PC remotely + use Intel® AMT HW KVM from Intel® Manageability Commander to control it or modify ISO for unattended installation.
Intel® AMT HW/FW up to version 10.x supports only DVD image (ISO) and FDD image (.img) for IDE-R - bootable USB image is not supported.
Intel® AMT HW/FW starting from version 11.x in addition to DVD image (ISO) and FDD image (.img) also supports bootable USB image (.img) file as well for its improved USB-R Boot Redirection feature (please note some console tools may still use IDE-R name/label for USB-R feature -as externall API is not changed).
Some console tools itself may support only one selected type of image file -ex. .ISO.
