Brand new XPS 13 to PXE boot with YX2FJ USB3 to ETH adapter

Jump to solution

I've got a new XPS 13 9370 laptop with USB C only.  I'm trying to PXE boot with my Dell USB3 to ETH adapter and the supplied XPS USB C to USB 3 adapter.

So far It's not recognizing the USB ETH at the F12 boot menu.  I've tried UEFI and BIOS.

My old laptop is an XPS 13 9343 from 2015.  It recognizes the USB ETH adapter and is available as a PXE boot source.

Can someone tell me if there's a way I can get this to work or a different USB adapter?  I need to be able to image these computers.

I opened up another XPS box and got the USB C to USB 3 converter out.  I tried using it, just in case the other one was a little off and it still won't recognizing it.  It must not be supported using converting down from USB C to USB 3.

Ruben OES,

 

 

The description is somewhat confusing. Do you mind posting a picture of all the connections and adapters you are using?

The USB Ethernet adapter can't plug directly into the laptop because it doesn't have any USB 3 ports.  So I used the USB C to USB 3 adapter that comes with the XPS.

Ruben OES,

 

Start the computer and tap the f2 key to enter the bios. Change the settings below to the information listed.

Secure boot enabled and UEFI boot mode and the enable legacy option ROM option needs to be turned off

That's the settings I'm using.  Legacy ROM options needs to be disabled to use Secure boot.

Does Dell make a USB C Ethernet adapter?
