I don't see a follow up, I couldn't even found if was complete, on this old (9/22/2016) feature request made by: toffitomek

Here it is again:

I have a dream!      vPro Support

- you can power on system remotely
- you can see BIOS (AFAIK it uses VNC)
- you can mount ISO 
- when system is up you switch to SC client
- all above working over Internet with 'Fast Call For Help feature'

Any of the elements above, even power ON/OFF and basic ISO mount on BIOS level, so you can boot new OS or to network would be big thing.

I know it's completely different stuff from core SC development but Intel provides plenty of APIs, corporate uses vPro, even when it's hard to setup, and (IMHO) it would open new rich markets for SC.

This could make a huge impact on promoting SC all over the world
