I just recently updated our K2000 to v.4 and got the network setup for UEFI PXE. The boot environments work well on most of our models. I'm having an issue with the E5470 deploying Windows 10. I have tried every driver pack and individual driver I can find, but just won't boot the full KBE. I can UEFI PXE boot to the KBE selection menu, select my Win10 boot option and it transfers to the local machine, but once the Win10 logo appears the whole thing just hangs. The Ethernet port blinks all orange leading me to believe its an issue with the network drivers. I have tried everything and I'm near my wits end. Has anyone had any luck getting these E5470 booting in UEFI PXE?

If set it to Legacy boot and use standard PXE it works. Other computers, our older E7440 works just fine in UEFI PXE boot and imaging. I don't know what else to try.

This is a known limitation.
Support can fix it for you if you really need it now.
Alternatively you can wait for 4.1 (which is in beta right now)

  • I have been looking all over for an explanation on why it's not working. Can you explain the limitation to me. This issue is increasingly frustrating to me. Will this only affect the current model line or am I looking at a much larger issue? We are looking to purchase around 300 laptops for upgrades this May and I want to UEFI boot and image them. We're looking at the Latitude E5480.
    • the KBE is with 4.0 much faster than before and so the network card is not ready for the next step.
      Support implements you a solution(the fix which is also used in 4.1)

      As I said: you need the fix now? contact support, mention K2-6551 (the bug number of this) and you will get it fixed as soon as possible.

Quest support tethered to my K2000 and added a 20 second sleep to the iPXE boot process. Everything is working fine now.
