PXE boot fails

We are a primarily Dell laptop environment. I have deployed SCCM 2016 successfully and am working out minor kinks here and there with deployment of software and OS things

I have configured all my PXE settings and I can get the laptop to boot to PXE but it does not identify anything to connect to IE: my sccm server to pick up the image I built.

After it attempts to find a connection it fails then reboots.

Any idea on areas to check? I modified my DHCP options set for PXE 60, 66 and 67.

The DC that host DHCP and DNS is Windows Server 2012r2 and the SCCM server is 2019

Can you ping pxe agent when it booted? Seems like it is a simple network problem. Normally when pxe image starts it gets the ip from dhcp. Check if it is pingable and if it is trying to access the correct address for an image.

Clarification *** I have attached a screen shot of my issue. (I misquote above, I need to hit a key for restart, it does not auto restart) It looks like it identifies the server.

are you allowing unknown computers to install? Looks like only known computers are allowed
