Installing a remote system

Remote system installation enables you to start and set up your system using the software and
configuration information located on a network server. This feature is usually used as a system setup
and configuration tool and can be used for the following tasks:
Deploying a software image on one or more new PCs
Formatting a hard drive
Installing application software or drivers
Updating the operating system, application software, or drivers
To initiate a remote system installation, press
lower right corner of the HP logo screen. Follow the onscreen instructions to continue the installation
process. The default boot order is a BIOS configuration setting that can be changed to always attempt
a PXE boot.
