Surface Pro 6, PXE Failing
So when I try to PXE boot, the Surface Pro 6 tells me roughly
Start PXE Boot from IPv4
Downloading NBP File
File Downloaded successfully
But then it just moves on. No error message, just a restart. Does anyone have any ideas for me? I’m very new to FOG and have had no trouble with any other machines I’ve tested it on.
@george1421 That was a really helpful guide. Easy to follow and now we’re ready for whatever type of boot we need.

@TBCS this device can afaik only boot uefi you habe to disable secure boot also.
Like george is telling you, you need to get efi booting working.
@TBCS Do you plan to support both uefi and bios based systems at the same time? If so, do you have a linux or windows 2012 or newer dhcp server? There is a wiki page that shows how to configure them to dynamically provide the proper boot file based on the pxe booting client.
Ok that makes sense, the boot loader (DHCP 067) is the part that I was the least familiar about (basically I just knew that I needed to write undionly.kpxe in there and didn’t really know what it meant). That makes a lot of sense when you put it that way. Thanks for your help!
The short answer is you are sending the wrong boot loader to that computer. I’m going to bet that surface pro is a uefi only computer. You need to send ipxe.efi to that computer instead of undionly.kpxe which is a bios pxe boot loader.
