Q. How can I avoid having to press F12 during a Microsoft Remote Installation Services (RIS) boot?

A. By default, RIS causes the client computer to display a prompt that tells the user to press F12. To prevent RIS from displaying the prompt, navigate to the folder \\RIS_server_name\REMINST\oschooser\i386. Rename Startrom.com to Startrom.old, then rename Startrom.n12 to Startrom.com.
