When PXE booting a E6520 we receive the following error:

ERROR: Unable to determine servder IP address from DHCP
WARNING: Using hardcoded K2000 IP address as fallback

It appears to be a network driver issue with the new E6520's
I have downloaded the (Dell Driver Pack for WinPE), but am unsure about how to use the DISM tool to integrate / rebuild the KBE.
Not sure if doing this will fix the issue.

Once the driver is in the driver share, just re-cache.

Don't worry messing with DISM, its easier to just rebuild the KBE using the media manager.

Yup, go to: "http://kbox/driver_manage" recache the K2000 Boot enviroment(s) and upload a new WinPE via the media manager, by far the easiest way =)

Nevermind, were the wrong drivers. Trying again.

Yes. After getting the right drivers. With the first go around, the NIC came up, but OS install failed with no drives found. Then I added the storage driver, re-cached drivers (again), and rebuilt the boot environment (again), and all went well.
You know, considering the kbox is a Dell product, you'd think they'd automate the kbox driver updating process with (at least) their own drivers.
