Detailed Description

This document will show how to build a small bootable Linux* ISO that can be used with Intel® vPro™ technology to enable Microsoft* Outlook Web Access (OWA) on a remote client. This will be accomplished by using the Open Source Linux project called Thinstation. Examples will be given on how to build the ISO with applicable configuration changes to work well with OWA.

Thinstation is a small, basic, lightweight operating system based on the Linux operating system. It was created as a Linux Open Source project. Its relatively small size makes it ideal as a bootable ISO "recovery OS" that can be pushed remotely using Intel vPro technology to a PC whose installed operating system is not working. The ISO described in this document also includes a Mozilla Firefox* browser, so that the downed PC's owner can access email via Outlook Web Access once the Thinstation ISO has booted.
