    No need to press F12 if I stop all computers and send a signal with the image wake-up on lan

    Just be mindful that windows 10 doesn’t play nice all of the time with WOL. Many have reported that wol doesn’t work if the computer was in windows and is either put to sleep or shutdown from inside windows. WOL does work if the computer is unplugged and then pugged in, where windows wouldn’t leave its bits hanging around and breaking the wol process.



  • Thank you for your answer but I figured it out. When I shutdown all machine from a distance and send wake-up on lan, actually the commuters start loading ipxe even lan option is not on the first place in the boot menu. WOW this one made my day. No need to press F12 if I stop all computers and send a signal with the image wake-up on lan WOW.
    Thanks a lot to all who work on this great project FOGproject!

    FOG doesn’t require a keypress to load the bootmenu unless configured in the WebUI.

    Unless you mean F12 for Network boot, which is impossible. (as the link you provided mentions, you have to do it at least once)

    Of course you could configure network boot as default and have a short timeout with boot to hard drive in FOG menu as default. That is typically the most reliable way of remotely managing such devices, imo.
