How is Stratodesk NoTouch installed and deployed?
NoTouch can be booted in Live Mode (without touching the underlying OS) or installed on the device’s hard disk or flash drive. Live Mode boot options include booting from USB or CD-ROM or using PXE (Network) boot. Most of our customers use USB boot for testing purposes and take advantage of the PXE boot server when rolling out NoTouch onto thousands of PCs. For enterprises that need to install at scale, we also offer a MSI installer package that can be rolled out without any third party tools or user interaction.
