FAQ ::: Unattended OS Installation
Here, you find questions and answers regarding unattended
operating system installation.
The bootix BootManage Administrator (BMA) remotely manages the boot process of networked computers (servers, desktops, and laptops) and takes care of the remote first installation or the reinstallation of an operating system (OS) on these machines via network. This fully automated OS deployment procedure (remote wakeup, OS installation, shutdown) does not require any service personnel or user on site, and allows to implement time-scheduled mass roll-outs overnight or at weekends. Prerequisite in each managed computer is a PXE (Preboot Execution Environment) Code which today comes with almost all new servers, desktops, and laptops. Back to FAQ overview
A PXE PROM only provides a series of basic functions, but requires a number of additional components to be able to implement network boot or automated network based installations. The BootManage Administrator provides these additional components together with a graphical user interface. Both products combined cover all aspects of remote boot and remote installation environments. Back to FAQ overview
