Re: Problem using PXE Boot for Optiplex 780

We also had trouble using PXE boot with the 755 and 780 models. In our case we are using FOG for imaging and  including ATI Radeon video cards to support dual monitors.  The PXE boot process would fail with the ATI card in place.  Pull the card and the image works fine.   Very inconvenient, but works for a quick solution.  All of the prior tricks with BIOS updates and settings didn't work for us.

Re: Problem using PXE Boot for Optiplex 780

I had to download the generic driver for the Intel 82566 -- see http://www.intel.com/support/ethernetcomponents/controllers/83566/sb/cs-029661.htm

PXE works fine now.
