PXE Boot with USB 3.0 Gigabit Adapter


Is PXE Boot with USB 3.0 Gigabit Adapter possible ?

Which USB 3.0 adapter is supported ?

So far i tried Adapters from Microsoft and Lenovo (USB 3.0 Gigatbit), both NOT supported.

Only some old USB 2.0 LogiLink shows up in BootMenu , but speed is very slow.

Any suggestions what brand I should use ?

Hello Tobias,



In regards to your inquiry about using an USB 3.0 Gigabit Adapter for PXe boot on the Intel® compute stick, I just wanted to let you know, there might be compatibility issues with some of the adapters or converters and some of them might not work properly, based on that, on the following links you will be able to see some of the peripherals that were tested with the Intel® compute stick, in there you will find some network adapters that might work for you.



Also, there are more adapters that will work properly with the stick besides the ones on that list, is just that those were not tested by Intel®, so, we cannot confirm that they will actually work, and that is why I cannot provide the actual brand or model for an adapter except the ones on the list.



Here you have the link of testing peripherals for the different models of Intel® compute sticks:
