STK2m3W64CC and Dell USB adapter for PXE boot

Have STK2m3W64CC and bought Dell USB adapter for PXE boot, is there are some specific settings also needed in DHCP to be able to PXE boot? It shows that tries to network boot, but no actions follows. Also no PXE boot device is visible in Bios settings.

Hello AAdmi9, 

 

Thank you for posting on this Community.

 

Both the m3 and the m5 Compute Sticks can support this using a very specific USB to Ethernet adapter. The adapter must be using an ASIX AX88179 LAN chip solution.

 

Please refer to the attached document for steps.

 

I hope you find this information helpful.

Hello AAdmi9, To check validated adapters, please refer to the Intel® Product Compatibility Tool and the specifications provided on this thread. Intel® Product Compatibility Tool http://compatibleproducts.intel.com/ProductDetails?prodSearch=True&searchTerm=Intel%C2%AE%20Compute%... We also tested two adapters: 1. USB 3.0 to 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter Ethernet-Adapter, USB 3.0 auf 10/100/1000. It was detected in BIOS after pressing F10 to check the boot options. USB and Network boot enabled. 2. USB 2.0 to Fast Ethernet Adapter Model No. Manhattan 506731. This one was not detected. I hope you find this information helpful. Wanner G.

Hello AAdmi9, Let me clarify that the USB Ethernet adapter was not detected in the BIOS, but is seen in the F10 Boot Menu to select, so it should boot successfully to the Network with the proper script. Wanner G. Intel Customer Support Technician Under Contract to Intel Corporation

Yes, it tries to boot, but seems that no response at all, is there some specific configuration needed on DHCP? Other machines network boots normally.

Or it should work as for any other machine that boots to PXE?

Hello AAdmi9, The guide attached contains instructions to configure DHCP to network boot. If you followed this guide, and the unit still does not boot, then there could be a problem with the login script or your environment. Hopefully, other community peers may provide further details about this configuration. Wanner G. Intel Customer Support Technician Under Contract to Intel Corporation

Hi,

 

Sorry for not providing more detailed info, we are using SCCM for computer PXE boot and installation, it works fine, is Intel Stick compatible with this solution?

Hello AAdmi9, Since the Ethernet controller is over USB, we may not be able to confirm if the unit is compatible with this. We will investigate this further and get back to you soon. Wanner G. Intel Customer Support Technician Under Contract to Intel Corporation

Hi AAdmi9, Can you please confirm that the network adapter that you have runs on an ASIX AX88179 LAN chip solution? If yes, can you please provide with the Brand and Model? If you have this type of adapter, can you please provide me with details about the issue that you have? Thanks, Ronny G

Hi,

 

One adapter is Intel's approved Dell USB 3.0 Gigabit Ethernet adapter DBJBCBC064 Intel Validated.

 

On Boot it tries to do network boot, but no actions follows, than it just boots to OS. Also pxe log does not have any entries about boot image requests.

Hi AAdmi9, A couple of quick notes regarding this issue: - PXE is supported only if using a USB adapter containing ASIX AX88179 LAN chip solution. - The usage model suggested by you should work if using ASIX AX88179 LAN chip solution. - I have no information in regards to what brand/model of devices use this solution. - Ethernet adapters found in our compatibility list are tested and validated under the Operating System but not to do PXE boot, as mentioned before we have only tested/validated ASIX AX88179 LAN chip solution. Regards, Ronny G
