PXE boot not loading
Hi, we are having issues with PXE boot. The machine has the correct bios settings with secure boot disabled. When the onboard NIC is selected during boot, it does the ..Start PXE boot screen then immediately flashes back to the screen to retry (F1).
Any advice is appreciated.
Is this a new model PC or Laptop? I've had issues in the past with brand new hardware where I had to "inject" the NIC driver into the KBE because the KBE couldn't use the new NIC. This was usually an issue on any brand new laptop models from Dell.
If you don't want to rebuild the KBE, then using a dock and it's RJ45 port should work (and are required with the latest 13" Latitudes that we ordered because Dell removed the RJ45 port from the small laptop models).
Another issue I've found with the newest Dell laptops, is that they have the NvME hard drives set to a RAID configuration and that has be changed in order to Image them with KACE.
Have you tried booting to PXE on another pc maybe? Does it have a problem with just one pc?
If it's not working on any pc, I'll suggest checking your DHCP configuration. Maybe something is wrong on the server-side.
Also, are you using Legacy or UEFI? If the other ones are working, maybe Bios setting in Legacy and UEFI is different.
I would suggest updating Bios too since that might help in some cases (If you are sure pxe setup is correct and it's working on other pcs)
