PXE boots but doesn't find IP Address

Recommended Posts

Hello All,


I'm trying to image a Dell Precision M6800. It PXE boots and pulls the boot wim fine but once it gets into the task sequence area it will just reboot. I can't seem to pull an IP address to it at all but it PXE boots fine. This is the only laptop that does this. Even the previous M6700 will boot via PXE and is able to image. I also have booted into all other Dell Machines fine. This is the first M6800 and its not letting me imagine it. I can't seem to figure out what is wrong. Is any one else having this problem with other computers?

Make sure the NIC drivers for the failing model is in the boot image. If you're running SCCM 2012 RTM it should be Windows 7 drivers (x86 or x64 depending on the boot image architecture). If it's SP1 or R2 it should be Windows 8 drivers.


THat was it. I needed the windows 8 drivers since I was running SP1 R2. Thanks!
