Lenovo ThinkBook 15 G2 ITL not PXE booting

  • Hi,
    iam following the project now already for a long time but i have reached a point were i need some support.
    We have a new series of Lenovo “ThinkBook 15 G2 ITL” series over here. The PXE starts and downloads its ipxe file but on trying to configure the hardware it fails with the message:

    No configuration method succeeds

    With adding a Lenovo port replicator with its own Network card it is working. But after the image i get the error from windows, that we have a “Inaccessable Boot device”. So i think the first to start here is making the network card working.

  • Hey I Just found a solution to this… when making the DHCP policy the snponly.efi file seemed to work (instead of ipxe.efi)… Hope this helps

    @FGeyer Which iPXE file exactly do you use? Have you tried other ones, like snponly.efi or so? Does this device boot in UEFI mode or legacy BIOS?

    You can try compiling iPXE binaries from the latest source code and see if those with this model:

    cd /path/to/your/fogproject-source-dir/
    cd utils/FOGiPXE
    cd ../../packages/tftp/
    find -type f -exec cp -Rfv {} /tftpboot/{} \;

    Hint: You might have to install packages beforehand (e.g. genisoimage, syslinux, xz-devel).
