DHCP Issues - detroilen - 2015-04-14 17:31

We have some new Lenovo Thinkpad 11e's that are having issues with iPxe. I have been talking with Uncle Frank and Tom Elliot over at the FOG forums but I figured I would post up a thread here too. http://fogproject.org/forum/threads/intel-undi-stuck-initializing.12729/

So far we have got it past the stuck initializing issue but now it is not pulling down an IP adress from the DHCP. Here is a wireshark capture from a portable fog server running dhcp and connected straight to the laptop.


In the capture you can see on lines 161, 165, and 170 it is producing an error under Option 77. I am not very versed in what this might mean so that is why I have started this thread. Any help I could get would be very much appreciated.

Which ipxe binary are you using, after dhcp what does the counters (RX/TX/RXE/TXE) report? And which error are you getting? A screenshot might be useful. If you still don't get any info from that try to build with DEBUG=realtek or DEBUG=intel depending on which driver your Lenovo NIC hardware uses.
