Re: [K12OSN] Acer Travelmate 220 Laptop

You might try running tcpdump or wireshark on the server and see if the clients are even sending any dhcp requests onto the wire.

I've got several of these that I am using in a conventional lab, but they

but for some reason I can't get them to boot using PXE. I've gone through
all the bios and PXE settings and everything looks fine, but once the PXE
Version 2.0 message comes up with the option to go into PXE setup, it stops
immediately after that - no message, nothing.

I have a couple of Acer 620's that I tried and they work like a champ. The
220's have Realtek 8139 nic's which, as far as I know, should be PXE

If I have to build a boot floppy, I will, but only as a last resort. I don't
want to get rid of these machines since I think they'd make good clients
once I get the boot issue resolved. Has anyone had any experience with these
