Single workstation not picking up DHCP IP address

Hello,
I have a workstation which is not picking up AN IP address from DHCP.  No other workstations have this issue, statistics on the DHCP server show 66% available ip addresses, and in plugging in a personal workstation which has never been on this network am able to get an ip address assigned.
In summary:
1.  The DHCP server is working properly as it hands out ip addresses to other workstations and laptops when testing on the same cable and port
2. If I set a static IP, it works fine
3. I can ping the DHCP server without issue

Operating system of the dhcp server?

Have you seen the dhcp server logs looking for the host name or MAC address? launch a command line on the machine and type ipconfig /renew and check the dhcp server logs

Have you checked if the machine has an enforced ip configration from the nic properties?

I have re installed the OS and can verify there is no enforced IP config, no entries in DHCP log. I have a second internal domain on a seperate VLAN and when I connect it to that vlan, it picks up an IP Address fine. Again.. no other workstations have this issue, this is the only one.

I asked about the DHCP server operating system because, for instance, on ws2008 DHCP role there are MAC adress filters.

I had to install a new NIC to get this workstation on the network.

Not a fix just a workaround but unfortunately, did not have time to dive deeper to work on a single workstation.
