So we have a bunch of systems distributed across a semi-large area and are looking to upgrade soon. We are looking for systems that could preferably be booted from a USB drive in the system remotely. I've seen things referencing IP KVMs and vPro to allow remote access at the BIOS level. Is this indeed possible and what would be required for this to happen? In the ideal situation we could:
- Have user plug in USB
- Reboot system from our office
- Boot to the USB into Linux installer
- Go through install dialog
We are looking for a mini-ITX solution (custom build is ok). Any help would be greatly appreciated!
