Unless it comes up and actually uses the network, you can't get the MAC remotely.

Things to try:
1) BIOS- it might be in the BIOS setup
2) If it's not in the BIOS, try altering the boot order so it tries to boot over DHCP via the network card. It might show the MAC when it tries to boot.
3) Boot it from a CD (e.g. Fedora in rescue mode).
