brand new dell latitude 3500
seems that the newest kernel finds no hard drive - these things are brand new, they are fresh off the line from dell.
anything I can do to see if its a hardware compatibility problem or something different?
these don’t have ‘legacy’ boot mode anymore - its all uefi.
Ding ding ding ding! I need to set my dhcp server settings for UEFI!!!

@Joe-Gill i successfully ran through a pallet of these - 27 - and no issues. this was my process:
boot into BIOS setup.
Click enable UEFI network stack, scroll down to AHCI and click it. hit Apply.
on the left, select secure boot. disable using checkbox - it will ask if you’re sure. hit yes, hit apply. hit exit.
it reboots, hit f12, network boot ipv4
if it doesn’t work for you, make sure your ipv4 UEFI boot settings are setup on your dhcp server (ipxe.efi instead of undionly.kpxe)
I just tried it with the Secure Boot off and it failed the same way it did before.
It never even begins to load the iPXE.
I have secure boot enabled.
Ah that’s it turn off secure boot because iPXE is not signed at all. So the firmware won’t load iPXE.
The BIOS says:
Downloading NBP file... NBP file downloaded successfully.
Than it returns to starting to load Windows. I never see a FOG PXE boot screen at all. I’m running the 4.19.48 32 and 64 Kernel Versions. I have secure boot enabled.
I have the following enabled in UEFI:
Onboard NIC (IPV4)
Enable UEFI Network Stack
Enabled with PXE
Enable Secure Boot
Audit Mode (I tried this doesn’t make a difference)
FAST Boot Thorough
I can’t get it to PXE using UEFI
What doesn’t it do? What errors are you seeing?
You have to give us a bit more detail more that it doesn’t work (my words).
Did you manage to get this figured out? My coworker ordered a pile of these and I can’t get it to PXE using UEFI… Any advice there?
THANK YOU @Sebastian-Roth
just got a pallet of 67 of these and would hate to go back to pre-fog days…:)
@p4cm4n Most probably some kind of Intel software RAID foo. See if you can change from RAID to AHCI somewhere in the UEFI firmware settings.
