Top Answer

The system is showing that it is attempting to PXE boot into the undionly.pxe file which is a Legacy/BIOS boot mode. This comes from the DHCP setting for OPTION 67, the file name that would need to be loaded on this UEFI system is ipxe.efi. Images which are captured as Legacy can be adapted to run and install as UEFI. There are a couple of articles on Quest support site which may help.

Hello -

Is it intended to boot into the Legacy mode for image deployments?  Check with the new dell system and see if it has the Legacy mode to enable or they might just be UEFI only.

I know longer see Legacy mode in the dell bios

infact i see a note in the bios that says

"Note: Legacy boot mode is not supported on this Plateform."

and i think that started with a bios update some time in the last 6 months
