    Possibility to change boot menu in PXE Server?


    first of all: We are testing Snap Deploy 2.0 for a customer of us. If all is going well, the customer will buy some licenses of Snap Deploy and Universal Deploy (around 150 licenses each)... :)

    We have successfully created an image and are also able to deploy this image across multiple subnets usind a workaround. But after the deployment the client hangs in the bootmenu at every start... :oops:

    Is there a possibility to change the bootmenu of the PXE Server so that the user can normally start his workstation all times?

    At the time there are 3 options:

    - Snap Deploy Agent
    - Image Creator
    - Windows

    We would like to have an option to say that Windows shall automatically start within 2-5 second and not the Deploy Agent or the Image Creator...

    Does such a solution already exist to change the bootmenu?

    Thanks in advance.

    We found a solution by ourselves. Here is the possible sourcecode of the new bootwiz.cfg:

    KERNEL F2.BIN quiet
    KERNEL F4.BIN quiet

    sysboot /active

    echo Druecken Sie F11 fuer das Acronis Boot-Menu...
    default continue
    delay 20
    bootmenu 389
    quiet on

    With this bootwiz.cfg it is possible to get a message "Druecken Sie F11 für das Acronis-Menu" at startup. When the user hits F11, the user comes to the Acronis Menu, when the user does not hit F11, Windows continues to start... :cool:
