Remote Boot (Windows Embedded Standard 2009)
The Remote Boot service implements a Pre-boot Execution Environment (PXE), allowing for a network to act as a boot device. This allows you to configure a client remotely without requiring the client to have a storage device. PXE is invoked at startup of the client and communicates with the server to retrieve a boot image across a network.
For more information about Remote Boot, install the Remote Boot service and view the associated Help documentation.
