No Boot PXE with Lenovo L440

Hi everyone,

We have a new Thinkpad Lenovo L440 and we can't boot PXE. Our Imaging server is 11.2.4, installed on a Windows Server 2008 SP1

We changed the BIOS for booting in Legacy Mode but no change. Laptop can't receive any IP address.... We have upgraded the BIOS to the most recent version but still no luck...

any idea ?

booting from a CD with Imaging is working.

Re: No Boot PXE with Lenovo L440

Think I've got the same issue with a Lenovo ThinkCenter E52, I can imagine I'll see the same on a L440 if I had ne.

I think theres a new imaging release due very soon.

Its not a massive problem for me I'll just image them from USB until its fixed in a imaging update

but I don't think its Imaging the problem because I'm at the DHCP step to receive an IP address and I don't receive it... it's before getting the PXE menu...

Did it help with the new imaging drivers update?

I would suggest Triple Checking for BIOS updated based on this
thread..........
