Surface Pro now supports PXE boot

Microsoft have finally released the firmware update for the Surface Pro (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=38826) that once installed and used with the Microsoft Surface Pro Ethernet Adapter (http://www.microsoft.com/surface/en-us/accessories/home#adapters) allows the device to support PXE boot and therefore can be booted over the network allowing network based installation of Windows.

Note this ONLY works with the Microsoft Surface Pro Ethernet Adapter as the driver has to be part of the UEFI firmware.

Happy network booting!
