    When I use the Find My iPhone app, a "NetBoot5430" entry appears under the list of My Devices (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/53682537/NetBoot.jpg).

    I duckduckgo-ed this entry, and it appears to be an Apple technology that allows Macs to be booted from a network rather than a hard disk. I have not heard of this before, and I've not seen it before in Find My iPhone listings. Can anyone shed any further light on what this is and why is appears as a Find My iPhone device? Thx

    Interesting, I don't see that on my Find My iPhone page. If you search System Preferences for netboot, it highlights the Startup Disk pane, but there's nothing there that discusses netboot. I was familiar with the name and concept, but I admit that I've never seen any reference to it in OS X.
