Detailed Description

When diagnosing computer issues, it is often useful to boot to a CD or USB flash drive containing recovery and diagnostic tools. With Intel® vPro™ technology, a service desk technician can use IDER to employ these types of tools without leaving his desk. However, as the tools become larger, the boot times become longer. To mitigate longer boot times, a two-stage boot process may be used, causing the same larger tools to boot in less time. This process uses IDER to boot a very small operating system (OS) with network drivers and a boot loader (stage 1). This OS then downloads the intended tool from a nearby network share, web server, or even the remote client's local hard drive, then copies it to a RAM drive and boots to it (stage 2).
