Boot sequence editing remotely


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Here is what I wanted to do:

1. Setup WOL (Wake On Lan) and let the device to boot through PXE.

I have done a setup for WOL and PXE also. But the struggling part for me is, "Editing the boot order" after waking up the device(using WOL). I want the device to boot through PXE only once (each time when woke up from WOL).

Can any one help me on this?

Thanks,

Dinesh Bhat

A possibility is to access the BIOS (SMBIOS) settings and change them programmatically:

Some vendors provide CMOS Tokens:

Or maybe mod this:

BUT it's a loooong way, as I see it. :unsure:

Maybe you should ask for help in forums dedidacated to BIOS and BIOS modding....
