Remote desktop and dual boot


[link to this post]
 
Is there any way to boot another OS on a dual boot system using remote desktop.

Remote desktop requires an appropriate server to be running on an operating system so the simple answer is "No" since a systems BIOS cannot act as a remote desktop server.

Do you want to reboot the system that you are accessing using remote desktop or do you want to boot/reboot another system?

It's not the age... it's the mileage.

you'd need to change the default operating system (might need third party tool) and reboot (command utility Shutdown.exe allows rebooting in Remote Desktop)

Looks like changing system properties to a new default OS is the way to go.
