KACE 2000 - UEFI Boot from USB


I created a UEFI Boot USB to deploy an image according to the instructions here: https://support.quest.com/kace-systems-deployment-appliance/kb/186950/uefi-image-process-using-usb-key. I've made them before and they work, however, after creating a new KBE and booting off the new USB, I get stuck at a window saying Logging into server. This window comes up were you would normally select the Scripted Install option, but it doesn't come up since it doesn't get past the logging into server option.

Any thoughts on how to get around this?Any help would be appreciated.

My first thought goes to network drivers are absent from the WinPE for the hardware you're booting.

If you un-minimize (is that a term?) the cmd prompt window and then break the script via CTRL+ALT+C ,  does the device display network adapter info and an IP address if you type ipconfig.exe /all  ?

If the network adapter is not correctly displayed, you'll want to look at adding drivers to the KBE and rebuilding the boot media, the dell WinPE Driver packs from the following link have covered everything we've needed so far with the exception of a couple of outliers such as third-party USB network adapters that weren't properly vetted.


You may also have to enable the UEFI network stack in the BIOS if you're just now switching them from Legacy to UEFI
