Installing over RDP is going to disconnect your network. In _most_ cases, it
should complete satisfactorily, and even reconnect automatically. But VS has
to add it's driver into the network chains, and there's no way around that.
One solution if you're working remotely is to use an iLO connection that
supports RDP. (iLO is HP's name for a directly connected separate management
network - other server vendors have an equivalent.) With HP, you need to
buy a software upgrade for the iLO to get RDP over it, but it works well.
