    I'm trying to deploy on a system that has Intel boot agent v4.1.08, but I always get no boot filename received which I understand to be because of the client having received at least one valid DHCP/BOOTP offer, but does not have a boot filename to download.

    Also after this error message appears on the target computer, the PXE server stops and I get a popup saying that the PXE server has to be shutdown.

    On the other hand I was able to successfully deploy on another system that user also Intel boot agent but a different version (4.1.10).

    I have tried to update the Intel boot agent using proboot but I haven’t been successful, because it has no flash.

    Does anyone know how can I fix it??
