RDP Client Operating System

Hey Guys and Girls,
I am looking for an OS that is dedicated to remote desktop, i mean when it boots it shows a menu so i can select a Server to connect to, or enter the host name/ip

it is for a server room, because we have some old laptops that we want to use as RDP clients, but they won't run Win vista (Very old) so a dedicated computer is prefers

Thanks in advance

Essentially what you're asking for is a thin client. Try Thinstation.

Well, I have personally never used AutoRDP - I've prefered this for quite some time - it does require .NET 2.0, though, so you'd need that in your BartPE image (I believe there's a plugin for it):
Remote Desktop Plus - Automatic login to Remote Desktop from the command line | Donkz

It might actually save you some tinkering because it can be run in /kiosk mode, which provides a very minimal connection shell - this list can also be /allowed so that only certain machines or IP addresses can be connected to (and anything else will be denied). It's not entirely automatic that way, but it is *really* easy . For example, you could run this command line:
rdp /u:<DOMAIN\User> /pe:<encrypted password> /kiosk
The user would then see a minimalist box, in which they could enter a computer name (or pick from the drop-down list), but the user and password will be greyed out (pre-entered, due to the command line).
