UEFI-PXE-Boot (Asus t100 Tablet)
@george1421 This worked! Thanks a bunch, this is going to cut down maintenance time on these tablets immensely. Also thanks to everyone who took the time to look into this!
The solution was to boot directly to the FOS engine using this guide:
It did still take a usb hub, correct Ethernet adapters, and a flash drive but that is perfectly fine.
Also as a side not, the only Ethernet to usb adapters that worked were usb 2.0 10/100. Specifically the “Cable Matters USB 2.0 to 10/100 Fast Ethernet Network Adapter” and the “ASUS Network Adapter for Transformer Pad” (model number: 90-XB3900CA00040-). I tried three others that were usb 3.0, gig adapters and they did not work for whatever reason.
@K.Hays When booting into FOS this way we only need to ensure that the FOS kernel is updated to support new hardware.
So as the developers release new version of the FOS engine all you need to do is download these files and move them to the previously created usb flash drive into the boot folder replacing the existing files.

In regards to the usb network adapters. When you pxe boot uefi devices you MUST use network adapters recommended by the manufacturer to support pxe booting. When you usb boot into FOS you will have better luck with older USB 2.0 network adapters since those are most likely supported by the linux developers.
