    you must have a dchp server and the bios set up to boot from NIC.
    in acronis you must upload the components (master image ceator/snap deploy agent) to the acronis pxe server.

    You know, it would be nice if Acronis puts this in the instructions guide so that everyone knows this and you don’t have to check around to find the information. Everyone is not PXE savvy, and knowing that you start it from the BIOS boot sequences, setting it to boot first from the nic is very helpful. ;)

    Hello all,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Complete System Deployment Software.

    FloatingPoint, we have forwarded your suggestions to our Technical Writers Team. Probably this description of the bootup from PXE Server process will be added to the User's Guide in future.

    Thank you.
