If problem is still actual, please, try this build:

http://pxe.ru/files/testing/201710230055.zip

Install this build. Make boot SD.

Then open cmdline.txt file on SD in text editor (windows notepad is ok) and add "config_timeout=10" before "quiet" word.

Will it work as expected?
I can confirm this works on Ver 5.6.18

Thank you akatik

I hope remote SD card update will be implemented soon.

It is really difficult to manually update every ThinClient's SD card :(

Thank you aka for your hard work.

You can administer remotely by hands. Over HTTPS. Not automatically.

It's a problem.
WTware that boots from SD and downloads configs from network always saves downloaded config. And uses it on next boot if network server fails. But:
1. It takes time to make decision "server fail". Minutes.
2. It's error. WTware displays error message and user presses any key to continue.
Hello AKA,

Is there a way to disable the error message and the need to press any key to continue?

Hey Aka, just noticed you implemented Remote Update through Https somewhere around 5.6.x , That's great :D ,just tested it, remote upgraded a client from 5.6.18 to 5.6.24 8) , Thank you.

Only problem is I did not setup a password in every PI , so i still have to deal with the SD cards :lol: .
