Re: PXE Boot Error

Hi Ray,

There are many potential reasons for this event. When PXE booting make sure:

>PXE server is on same subnet as client
>Time/date info for client is correct
>network drivers for client are available in boot image
>PXE enabled in client RBSU

There could also be a bad NIC, cable, or switch port. Do you have more details to offer?
