Force PXE boot on windows



  • Hello,
    When I push out a task via the web manager, the client picks up the instruction, and restarts the machine. At this point, I would expect the machine to PXE boot (like ghost does), but it just starts windows up, and reboots again after ~5 seconds.
    Is this possible to do without hiding the menu and changing boot order? I would expect it to be possible, as it worked this way when we used ghost in the past.
    Many Thanks,
    Owen

    @OFlaherty GHOST does some magic thing when rebooting a client into a job. It backups and rewrites the master boot record and boot partition to bring up the GHOST imaging environment. FOG does not do this as it is quite dangerous and can break things fatally. FOG relies on real PXE booting a client to be able to run a scheduled job.
