I am having issues getting my KBE to take on the new E7450. It gets to "Waiting for Network Devices to Settle" then says that it cannot locate the KBOX utility via DHCP or known IP address.

Other systems are imaging just fine.

I've attempted to load a new KBE with the latest known Win7 AIK from this link but can't seem to get it to work.

Is this a known issue or am I doing something wrong?

  • Mryork, My first guess would be to check if UEFI is set in the E7450 Bios.

you need to do two things:
1. inject the correct network driver.
2. if you want to deploy W7, remove the iastor.sys driver

at best is clean out all drivers, build a new KBE and mention the two steps above.
https://support.software.dell.com/kb/146125 is a great article about this (my highly valued colleague Michael and I wrote it together ;) )

You need to add the drivers for the machine to kbe directory for the bit os you are pxe booting with and build a new KBE
