@coh_is So after documenting the iPXE error, I located another post on this forum with the same problem. In that post was a reply by you (george1421):
@george1421 said in IPXE Error: No configuration methods succeeded:
@Gary-Kulovics A screen shot of the actually error would be helpful to know exactly where in the process its failing.
What model of dell laptop are we talking about here?
The network port where this target computer is plugged in, do you have spanning tree enabled on that switch port, if you do are you using one of the fast spanning tree protocols (port-fast, fast-stp, rstp, [or the other one I can’t remember immediately])?
If you place once of those small unmanaged “cheapie” switches between the building switch and the target computer does it boot correctly?
If your target computer is in bios (legacy) mode then you will want undionly-(k)kpxe. That has worked on every dell device I have in my fleet.
I used the information in the last line of you post to change the dhcp bootfile name to undionly.kkpxe from undionly.kpxe and retried. Now I am able to get past this initial problem and to the FOG menu, but now I have a new one.
After selecting either of the host registry and inventory options, it looks like FOG is unable initialize DHCP and get an address. I fired up Wireshark on another system and did not see any additional DHCP requests coming from this target system. I did, however, see the initial DHCP request iPXE had made when it received an IP address from the DHCP server.
Headed back to the drawing board.
