On Intel® Desktop Boards that support the Pre-boot Execution Environment (PXE), you can set the network as a boot device. This selection allows booting from the onboard LAN.

To enable the network as a boot device:

  1. Press F2 during boot to enter BIOS Setup.
  2. Go to the Boot menu.
  3. Enable Boot to Network.
  4. Press F10 to save and exit the BIOS Setup.

Pressing the F12 key during POST automatically forces booting from the LAN. To use this key during POST, the User Access Level in the Security menu of the BIOS Setup program must be set to Full.
