With the release of Intel 4th generation core vPro processors comes new AMT versions, 9.0 and 9.5. This means that some of our favorite Use Case Reference Designs (UCRD) need driver updates. Well, fret no longer; 2 stage boot (iFast) and Remote Drive Mount (RDM) have been updated.


For those not in the know, RDM is a remote repair use case. Basically a technician can access the hard drive(s) of a remote system at the block level, even if Windows will no longer start.


iFast is a "building block" use case that makes remote booting faster, making it feasible to use larger ISOs, like WinPE, for remote repair and/or OS imaging. Check them out below
