Acer Extensa 5635Z PXE boot


We just bought 25 Acer extensa 5635Z for a new customer. We keep getting error message: PXE-T04: Missing mode.

Tried several bios versions of the laptop, but none work. The laptop has a Atheros AR8121 or AR8131 network card, and i added the drivers of both in the k2100.

What can be the problem? I called acer "technical support", but in 20 minutes he still didn't even know what PXE was...

Thanks for the reply:).

That part of the drivers is right, but i just wanted to try it to be sure:).

But it is solved now.. The bios that came with the device & the latest bios didn't work. Altough flashing the one prior to the latest did work?

So all 25 notebooks are flashed, and all without any problem now! For those with the same notebooks. I flashed version 3308.
