Systems Deployment Question
PXE Boot 7080
I am unable to PXE boot to the new Optiplex 7080. I tried adding the nic drivers to the kbe to no avail. Has anyone done this yet?

RESOLVED: When I first started this project last week, I used the current KBE Driver Pack listed for v7.2 , dated 3/12/2020, since we are currently at v7.2.97, with no success.
I downloaded the Dell Command Deploy Driver Pack from https://www.dell.com/support/home/en-us/product-support/servicetag/0-d2I1aHF6YTJGNmNYSzhMamViSmNFdz090/drivers, and extracted to the drivers_postinstall folder, in place of the drivers installed via the K2000's Dell Driver Feed. At this point, it still didn't work when I tried to boot to the KBE I built last week.
11/23/2020: I tried the Driver Pack for v8.0, instead, at https://support.quest.com/kace-systems-deployment-appliance/8.0/download-new-releases#, dated 11/16/2020. Then, I built a new KBE. And, this did the trick! Finally!
11/24/2020 Update: For kicks, I uninstalled the 7080 drivers from the Dell Driver Feed (which were the ones I manually extracted there), and then reinstalled the drivers via the Dell Driver Feed, re-cached all drivers, and tested PXE booting via my newest KBE, with success. Seems using the Driver Pack for v8.0 is the answer.
