    New RM Desktop Wont Network

    So I have recently received a new RM Desktop from RM, through work. It came CC4 ready and I plugged it into the network and booted it. The CC4 ready screen was open and it said it couldnt pick up any network.

    Anyway, a few attempts later. The CC4 screen has gone and normal Windows 7 desktop is on the machine. I know how to rebuild the PC. But not sure how to build from a disk image on the server. In order to build this PC onto the network i need to press and hold both of the shift keys when the RMR comes at the top left of the screen during boot. But this doesnt appear? what can i do to put this PC on the network?

    Any help is welcomed.

    Thanks

    - Kris

    Go into bios, set LAN as first option and f12 is easier to hit when needed.
    RMR only works when it has been built onto network, so a rebuild not first build

    Yep boot it via LAN

    It needs a machine number set so can be seen in RMMC etc, which is why it's not probably working on network yet.
