    Is there a way to stay connected to a computer via remote desktop while it reboots, or at least automatically reconnect? I ask because I need to take some screen captures of the BIOS settings which I can only get into on bootup. I can't use my screen capture application while in the BIOS, or at any point during bootup, but I can from another computer that's remotely connected to it - that is, if it could BE connected while at this stage in the bootup. Is this possible?

    It depends if you remote support software supports the automatic reconnect feature. I use ScreenConnect and it supports autoreconnect. I know they have a free trial- so if your software does not support it you can try SC. http://www.screenconnect.com/

    You cannot remote into the bootup process.
