How to Turn on Remote PC and Access BIOS Remotely
If you need to access the BIOS settings of a remote PC, you might think that you have to physically go to the machine and press the appropriate keys. However, there are some ways to turn on remote PC and access BIOS remotely without leaving your desk. In this article, we will show you how to do that using some free software and hardware features.
What is BIOS and why do you need to access it remotely
BIOS stands for Basic Input/Output System, and it is a firmware that controls the boot process and hardware configuration of your PC. BIOS settings allow you to change various options such as boot order, memory speed, fan speed, security settings, etc. Sometimes, you might need to access BIOS settings to troubleshoot a problem, update a driver, enable a feature, or optimize your PC's performance.
Accessing BIOS settings usually requires you to press a specific key (such as F2, F10, or Del) during the boot process before the operating system loads. However, if you have a remote PC that is not in your physical reach, you might not be able to do that easily. For example, if you have a PC in another office, another building, or another country, you might not be able to travel there just to access BIOS settings. Or if you have a PC that is turned off or in sleep mode, you might not be able to wake it up and access BIOS settings.
Fortunately, there are some solutions that can help you turn on remote PC and access BIOS remotely without having to be physically present at the machine. Let's see what they are.
How to turn on remote PC and access BIOS remotely using Intel AMT and Radmin Viewer
One of the easiest ways to turn on remote PC and access BIOS remotely is to use Intel AMT (Active Management Technology) and Radmin Viewer. Intel AMT is a remote control technology that is integrated into the hardware component of some PCs based on Intel vPro platform. Intel AMT allows you to remotely manage and control your PC even when it is turned off, in sleep mode, or has no operating system installed. Radmin Viewer is a free software that supports Intel AMT and allows you to connect to your remote PC using a secure connection.
To use this method, you need to have a PC that supports Intel AMT and has it enabled in the BIOS settings. You also need to have Radmin Viewer installed on your local PC and know the IP address or hostname of your remote PC. Here are the steps to follow:
Launch Radmin Viewer on your local PC and click Add new connection.
Select IntelÂ AMT connection from the drop-down menu and enter the IP address or hostname of your remote PC.
Enter the login name and password for Intel AMT (usually admin/admin by default) and click OK.
Right-click on the connection icon and select Power On from the menu.
Wait for the remote PC to turn on and display the boot screen.
Right-click on the connection icon again and select Remote Screen from the menu.
You will see the remote PC's screen in a window on your local PC. Press the appropriate key (such as F2, F10, or Del) to enter BIOS settings.
You can now access and change BIOS settings of your remote PC as if you were sitting in front of it.
How to turn on remote PC and access BIOS remotely using Wake-on-LAN and Remote Desktop
If your remote PC does not support Intel AMT or you don't have Radmin Viewer installed, you can still try another method that involves Wake-on-LAN and Remote Desktop. Wake-on-LAN is a feature that allows you to remotely turn on your PC by sending a special network packet called a magic packet. Remote Desktop is a feature that allows you to remotely access your PC's desktop using another device.
To use this method, you need to have a PC that supports Wake-on-LAN and has it enabled in the BIOS settings. You also need to have Remote Desktop enabled on your remote PC and know its IP address or hostname. You also need to have a device that can send magic packets (such as another a474f39169
