How to PXE boot a Dell Precision M4700 laptop?

10/23/2012 7562 views

We've recently updated from a Kbox2000 box to the VM Kbox2000. I've uploaded the storage and LAN drivers for the new laptop, along with the latest supplemental drivers from Kace and re-cached them. I've created a new x64 boot environment, but it still gets stuck right after the Windows logo. The screen just goes black and it beeps twice and stops. I'm out of ideas.

Answer Summary:
Flashing the A05 BIOS, released on 10/25/12, fixed the problem. Thanks!

You may have to downgrade your bios due to pxe problems in the latest bios.  You can test your boot env by creating a boot disk/usb stick from the same env.  If that works, it's the bios.  If it does not work you will need to put the drivers on the vkbox in a subdir under \\ikbox\drivers\kbe_windows_x64\dell-winpe-a02\network and recreate the env again.
