Hardware independence:

  • Windows PE provides network access and support for standard network drivers for copying images and test suites from the network to the computer using TCP/IP

  • Windows PE includes support for all mass-storage devices, networking devices, audio and video devices, and other devices supported in Windows XP and Windows Server 2003

Support for the PXE protocol:

  • If the computer supports PXE-booting, your IT professionals can start the computer automatically from a Windows PE image located on a remote installation server (RIS) when the image is not installed onto the hard disk of the computer.

Desktop and Server Deployment:
