KACE SDA - Pushing Image to Workstations with No user interaction
Answer Chosen by the Author
For legacy boot images.......
If you setup the "Onboard nic" to be first in the bootup sequence on the client machine..... That should start of the automated boot action sequence on the next reboot with no more user interaction. If you already have this setup in your environment, then you're good to go.
In my case I create UEFI boot images ......
So if a uefi partition exists on the machine, it will still not boot into pXE regardless of if it was first on the BIOS boot list. (The UEFI partition will always boot first). So after setting up Automated deployment, I still have to manually select pXE boot from the client machine. And that's it.......(Still trying to figure a way around this).
Either way you need at least one interaction with the client machine.........except like I said earlier if you are using legacy boot to deploy your image AND if you already have pXE boot as your first boot option .
Hope this helps.
Will be watching this post to see if there is a better way.

Run a network inventory (at best multiple times)
When you have the majority and it is the right time run an automated boot action.
