KBE load loop on lastest Dell E6520s

Got a shipment of Dell Laltitude E6520s. I select my KBE through PXE but after selecting, in a bit, it kicks me back to the KBE selection screen. Only this new model. I rebuilt my KBE and added the latest WinPE 3.0 drivers from Dell (upto revision A09 from my last, A05) but this did not improve the situation. I will try again and exclude all the older drivers first, and use only A09.

Any other ideas?

I have the same issue with the Dell Precision 3600 Workstation. Kace let me know they have an open internal case opened with Dell on this. The issue is the BIOS preventing the machines from PXE booting. The recommended workaround is creating either a USB or DVD ISO image of the KBE
