Restore over Network
Hello, I am looking to restore an image from over the network NOT using a USB or CD boot disk. My goal is to be able to remote into a working computer that has aomei installed, and restore an image over the network on to that same computer without having to go on site or have any user intervention from anyone on site. My client is 4 hours away and I don't want to have to drive all the way out there.
I would like to open the software on the computer, choose restore and then choose an image over the network to restore it to. I've gotten it to somewhat work so I know it's possible.
Sometimes it says that the image is over the network so you have to use a CD or USB boot disk, other times it actually lets me choose the restart computer method which looks like it's going to work but never quite does anything. I am guessing that the restart method is dependent on having a physical USB or CD boot device inserted into the computer but I could be wrong. It would be great to somehow boot into a Windows environment that allows you to restore over the network without needing a USB or any physical boot device.
Macrium reflect has this option but it still requires user intervention on the other end.
