PXE (Wired for Management Compliant)
PXE on Disk is client-based firmware that enables client PCs/Notebooks/Servers to access and boot from boot image files on a server. Supports network boot protocol and network environment as per the Intel Wired for Management specification's Preboot Execution Environment (PXE). PXE enables network administrators to deploy centrally-administered management applications to networked clients during their boot phase. Examples of preboot applications are OS deployment for new PCs and disaster recovery, virus scanning, PC BIOS updates, and critical file restore facilities.
Note: By default, Microsoft RIS does not support USB network adapters. If you plan to use this USB adapter with RIS then you will need to purchase the Argon RIS Menu Editor as well.
