Intel VPro technology .  Remote access to PC's at BIOS

Posted on 2011-10-02

We have around 40 computers in our network.
We wanted to replace most of the PC's with some Dell computers and get the new PC's with the intel vpro technology.

We wanted to do the following on the computers remotely when I am not in office:

  - remotely install OS on workstation
  - troubleshoot any blue of death (BOS)  errors on PC's
  - be able to power ON a computer if its OFF
 - be able to go to safe mode and run a full virus scan

 1) Now does the Intel Vpro technology chips allow us to do the above ?

2)  Do we need any other mangement software to do the above jobs, if YES which one are they ?

 Any other suggestion from the networking experts would be appreciated ?
