    possibility to remotely boot

    Hi guys, new and not sure what category this belongs to but I was wondering if its possible to boot windows 8.1 remotely.

    I know in previous versions of Windows, you can send a magic package and use the WOL feature, however as far as I know this doesnt work with windows 8 because of fast boot.

    Try disabling fast boot & try to boot it remotely.
