Lenovo X201

Anyone using Lenovo X201 machines? We're getting a BSD when PXE booting. I think it is the network driver. Any advice?

We do. Do you have the Boot action set to that environment? Try booting into the KDE boot menu and choosing the environment manually.

That's what we're trying. Did you download network drivers for this model? Which ones and where in the driver folders did you put them?

We also had issues with the PXE Boot on our Lenovo’s (although not the same issues you are having). We had to change our "Boot Manager Style" from the "Graphical Menu" to the "Basic Menu". This fixed the issue. The MOBOs did not work well with the "Graphical Menu". You could always test that out. The only bad thing is that you cannot password protect the PXE Boot in the "Basic Menu". Therefore, we had to turn down the "Boot Manager Timeout" to 1 second. This way the end user would not have time to do anything. Not a good fix but the only one until Kace or Lenovo fixes the issue.
