Problems with Winboot

I am attempting to deploy an image through KACE SDA. I am able to do so fine when I do it on a VM. However when I try to do it on a Dell Optiplex 3070 it does not fully load the WIMBoot. After a few reboots of the sda , and deleting the lease for the machine on the DHCP server I was able to get it to load to 97% , but my next attempt it did not successfully connect to wimboot, and gave me the error message below.  I am using SDA version 8.1.183 , PE 10.

Welcome to k2000 172.16.*.*

kbox2000.ipxe... ok

"Welcome to the SDA"

http://172.16.*.*/boot/boot.php............... connection timed out (http://ipxe.org/4c0a6092)

from the error, you got:  

Line 886
tcp_close ( tcp, -ETIMEDOUT );
The transfer of the KBE payload, is timing out, usually indicates a network issue.

Rule out the KACE SDA as the culprit, by testing against a Virtual Machine or a Physical Device, sitting on the same subnet as the SDA.

I would recommend reviewing ports and Switch settings, and also test with a different model to see if the same thing happens.
If another device is working fine, it's time to start updating the BIOS of the 3070, or attach a DELL USB2Eth dongle, to rule out the built-in network card as the culprit.
