PXE E53 No boot filename received when using RIS

Posted on 2006-04-28

I have a HP dc5150 MT and am trying to boot into RIS using the Broadcom 57x NIC that uses the UNDI PXE-2.1 environment.

However when I hit 'F12' to do a LAN boot

The HP UNDI PXE-2.1 v8.1.55 errors with:

'No bootfile name received'

The RIS server is authorized as a DHCP server and that works fine as I can boot from other machines into the RIS environment that have 3com PCI Nic Card with the use of the RIS boot disk. It seems to be the broadcom NIC I am having problems with or possibly the UNDI PXE-2.1 environment.

I have prestaged the computer in AD using it's UUID number but still no joy.

Any tips?? Thanks,

    Set Option 67 in your DHCP scope - give it another shot.
